99-degree reading breaks another record high temp in Denver


Another day and another high-temperature record falls in Denver with back-to-back 99-degree days.

The city sweltered in 99-degree heat on Thursday, breaking a previous record — 94 degrees — for Sept. 8 set in 1959, according to the National Weather Service.

On Wednesday, the high temperature in Denver also set a new record for Sept. 7 — with 99 degrees. That prior record was 95 degrees set in 2013.

Other cities around the state have also been setting recent record-high temperatures as part of a September heat wave.

A cooldown, however, is on the way, with high temperatures in some areas being about 30 degrees below the current record-setting heat.
