Denver sets record high minimum temperature for September 3

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013 6:13am MDT

Record setting high temperatures in Thornton.While there has been no shortage of heat, we have avoided any records for the past two weeks – until Tuesday.

Yesterday the coldest temperature registered at Denver International Airport during the 24 hour period was only 68 degrees.  This sets a new record high minimum for September 3, breaking the old record of 67 degrees set in 1947.

Here in Thornton we were a bit cooler with a low of 66 degrees at 6:44am.

We continue to be stuck under a powerful ridge of high pressure keeping things dry and hot.  Last month we set three high temperature records in a span of four days and one record high minimum.

The hot weather will continue through the weekend before we may see at least a bit of relief.  The ridge is expected to start to break down Tuesday ushering cooler temperatures, particularly on Wednesday.  Keep an eye on the forecast here for details.
