Saturday brought another extraordinarily hot day across northeastern Colorado.
In Denver the mercury climbed to 104° at 4:57pm. This broke the record high temperature for June 23rd of 102° set back in 1954.
This also ties the mark for the warmest temperature ever recorded in Denver during the month of June. The only other time 104° was also recorded was on June 26, 1994.
Here in Thornton we reached 102.2° at 4:09pm. This is the highest temperature recorded by ThorntonWeather.com since we came online in October 2006. Our previous highest temperature was 101.6° on July 17, 2010.
The heat wave continues the record-setting heat we have seen this month in the Mile High City. High temperature records have been set on June 4, June 17, June 18, June 22 and now June 23.
