Back to back: Denver sets a record high temperature for second day in a row

Record High TemperaturesFollowing on yesterday’s record-setting performance, the mercury once again rose to levels never before seen on this date.

At 12:53pm the station at Denver International Airport reported 82 degrees.  This easily bested the previous record for October 28 of 80 degrees last set in 1994.

Here in Thornton we were actually a bit warmer reaching 83 degrees at 3:34pm.

This is the third record high temperature recorded this month.  The first came on October 15 and the second just yesterday.

At this time it is certain that October 2016 will go into the record books as one of the 10 warmest Octobers in Denver history.  Where it ends up on the list is yet to be determined but it is likely to be around the fourth or fifth warmest.
