On August 2nd 2008, the temperature at the Denver International Airport maxed out at 103 degrees which once again establishes a new record for this date. The old record was 100 degrees was set 130 years ago way back in 1878.
So another 100 degree reading will need to added to the 100 degree table. This table reflects all of the 100 degree readings registered in Denver since 1872. So far in 2008, Denver has now registered three 100 degree readings.
This table also shows when all of the minus 20 degree or below temperatures were recorded. (It is hard to think of a -20 degree temperature when we have just experienced 21 consecutive 90 degree or above temperatures)
The temperature forecast for Sunday is for the upper 90s (still a possibility for another 100 degree reading), for Monday in the mid 90s and for Tuesday around 90 degrees.
