Denver sets record high temperature for May 10 shattering old mark

Thursday, May 10th, 2018 4:52pm MDT

Record High TemperaturesIt was almost certain today was going to bring record-setting temperatures for the date and sure enough, it did.

The old record high for May 10 was 86 degrees set in 1991 and years prior. The National Weather Service reports that at 3:51pm today the temperature hit 90 degrees, easily breaking the record.

Additionally, this is the fourth earliest in the season that Denver has seen a 90 degree mercury reading since record keeping began in the Mile High City in 1872.

Here in Thornton we managed to be just a little bit cooler with a high of 89 degrees at 3:34pm.

Tomorrow things cool down and the weather becomes a bit unsettled. Look for highs near 80 with a good chance of PM storms.  Then, this weekend gets cooler and brings even better chances for precipitation.
