Could Denver get the hottest temperature ever recorded this weekend?

Jul 10, 2024, 10:26 AM | Updated: 11:00 am

Denver could tie or break at least three daily heat records this weekend. That shows how unusual and impactful this five-day heat wave really is:

Thursday:.. The  record of 100 degrees set back in 2022 is likely to stand.

Friday:..The record of 101 degrees, set back in 1971 is in the jeopardy of falling. The current forecast is projecting a tie.

Saturday:… The record off 100 degrees, set back in 2003, is also likely to get tied or broken. The current forecast is 100 degrees.

Sunday:.. The record off 101, set back in 1878 could also fall. The most recent forecast is suggesting that Sunday has the best [potential for the highest temperatures.

Monday:… The record of 101 degrees set back in 2006 seems safe at the moment. This should be the final day of the heat wave. Temperature should be around 99 degrees.

If it does reach a streak of two consecutive 100-degree days, which seem very likely right now, it would only be the 15th time that’s happened in Denver since 1872. A three-day streak has only happened five times. The most recent time was in June of 2021.
