Thursday was Denver’s second-coldest day in recorded history


Thursday’s bitter-cold temperatures from a historic Siberian cold front nearly set the record for the coldest day in Denver’s recorded history.

The front, which blew into the city with a near-record-setting 75-degree temperature drop Wednesday, kept temperatures Thursday in the negatives the entire day, from a high of -6 degrees to a low of -24 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

The average temperature, -15 degrees, marked the second-coldest day in Denver’s recorded history and the coldest since 1963.

The record is -17 degrees set on Jan. 11, 1963.

The frigid temperatures are lingering Friday before Denver warms up just in time for Christmas.
