Denver sets record coldest high temperature for February 6

Record Cold TemperaturesThe big chill continued on Thursday as for the second day in a row the Mile High City’s high temperature set a record as the coldest for the date.

As officially measured at DIA, Denver’s high temperature today was 1 degree.  That easily bested the previous record low maximum for February 6 of 5 degrees set in 1929 and years prior.

The mark was an improvement, albeit a slight one, over yesterday’s high of 1 degree below zero which also set a record.

Here in Thornton we fared slightly better with our high temperature topping out at 4 degrees today and 1.9 degrees on Wednesday.

Warmer weather is on the way as the cold Arctic air mass is expected to be pushed out tomorrow.  Temperatures on Friday should climb above freezing for the first time in eight days.
