Tuesday hit 100 for the first time this year, and a new record for the date also.
We did a perspective piece on 100 degree heat back in July, here's a link to that for many Colorado locations and Denver's history.
The previous record was 98 degrees last set in 2013.
This makes the 58th 90+ day this year for Denver, which is way over the average. The DIA average per year since 1996 is 45 days at 90+ per year. This is the 2nd most to date, trailing 2012 by one day.
Given the outlook it is safe to say the tally will keep running.
The long-term forecast doesn't deviate from the heat much either. The next week and month are projected to remain warmer than average.
