With monsoonal moisture streaming into the state and cool air coming in from the north, Denver set its second weather record in as many days.

Denver’s official high temperature yesterday, July 30, as measured at DIA topped out at 62 degrees.  This sets a new record low maximum for the date easily besting the previous mark of 64 degrees set in 2009.

The reading is more akin to what we expect to see in April and October and well below the average high temperature for the date of 90 degrees.

Here in Thornton we matched that reading with 62 degrees as well.

Ironically, Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project was in Denver the past two days for EPA hearings. The group pushed the theme “I’m too hot” while serving up ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s.  Similar hearings were held in Washington DC and Atlanta and both cities saw below normal temperatures.

Perhaps not quite too hot, eh?  It would appear the “Gore Effect” has proven itself again.

On Tuesday Denver set a daily rainfall record as 1.80 inches fell in the bucket that day.

Thornton’s two-day rainfall total came in at 2.03 inches, nearly as much as Denver averages for the entire month of July.
