Record high temperature set for September 21

Thursday, September 21st, 2017 5:17pm MDT

Record High TemperaturesIn our morning forecast we said it was possible we would break the record high temperature and indeed we did. In fact, we smashed it.

At 3:05pm the mercury at Denver International Airport where the Mile High City’s official records are kept topped out at 92 degrees.  This easily bested the previous record high for this date of 89 degrees set in 2015.

Here in Thornton we were just a touch cooler with our high hitting 91 degrees at 3:19pm.

Change is coming soon though with high temperatures this weekend being much cooler.  A trough and associated cold front will be moving through and that will translate to Saturday highs in the mid to upper 60s and only the upper 50s on Sunday.

Details in our extended forecast here.
