Denver officially breaks high temperature record for this date

Denver set a temperature record for today, May 19.

Denver set a temperature record for today, May 19.

It’s official.  At 1:24pm today the temperature at Denver International Airport reached 90 degrees setting a new record high temperature for May 19.  This breaks the previous record high for this date of 89 degrees set in 2006. 

Wtih some cloud cover moving in and a chance for thunderstorms in the forecast, it appears that is as high as the mercury will climb today. 

But is it truly a record?

One does have to wonder though, is it truly fair to call this a record?  When the National Weather Service moved Denver’s official monitoring station from Stapleton to Denver International Airport, some say the city’s climate records were forever altered.  For more information and analysis of the controversy, check out this story:  Do Denver weather and climate records have an asterisk attached?
