Denver smashes record high temperature for April 2nd

Denver easily broke the record high temperature for April 2nd.

Denver easily broke the record high temperature for April 2nd.

We knew Saturday was going to be a warm one that would likely break the high temperature record for April 2nd but it far exceeded the forecast.

The record high temperature for today’s date was 76 degrees, last set in 1996.  At 1:22pm today the temperature at Denver International Airport hit 84 degrees thus easily eclipsing the old record.  Warm winds and plenty of sun helped the Mile High City reach the mark.

Thornton fared even warmer as we hit a high temperature of 86.4 degrees at 3:14pm.  Some cloud cover has moved in as of this writing and the temperature has dropped a bit so that may be tops for the day.

Highlighting the contrasting conditions that Denver weather can exhibit at any time, we will follow the record setting warmth today with a blast of winter-like conditions arriving tomorrow.  We are expecting a quick shot of snow that will bring some much needed precipitation to the Denver metro area.
