Monday, Denver set a new daily record high by hitting 100 degrees. The previous record was 99, set in 2020.
We discussed this in yesterday's SOTA, including what's creating the warmth.
So, is this a lot?
This is the city's fourth day of 100-degree heat; 100s happen, on average, twice per year. The most 100-degree days was in 2012, with 13 of them.
Monday also marks the 29th day of 90+ heat for Denver and the 7th day in a row. The longest streaks are 24 in 2008 and 2012.
This was a nice graphic from NWS Boulder posted Sunday regarding the 90s:
As we look at the planner for Denver, more heat on tap.
