Denver International Airport sweats out record temperatures Tuesday

Denverites are sweating it out in abnormally warm spring weather on Tuesday, with a record high set at Denver International Airport.

As of 12:36 p.m., the National Weather Service reported the temperature as 81 degrees at the airport – beating the previous record set in 1982 at 80 degrees.

The service predicts that temperatures will likely rise even further throughout the day, with the high potentially hitting 83 degrees. The new heat record is set one week after snow fell in Colorado’s capital city.

The office expects temperatures on Wednesday will follow a similar pattern — possibly reaching 84 degrees and beating the previous high of 79 degrees set in 2018.

Thursday, temperatures are anticipated to cool to a high of 75 degrees, leaving the current record of 85 degrees set in 2006 unthreatened.
