Denver hot streak: record 19 days of 90-plus heat

DENVER ” Temperatures soared past 90 degrees for a 19th straight day in Denver for a record streak that could stretch into next week.

The National Weather Service doesn’t expect high temperatures to dip below 90 until Wednesday.

Meteorologist Jim Kalina says Denver officially had its 19th day in a row with temperatures above 90 as of 11:52 a.m. Thursday.

He says an upper-level high-pressure system has helped keep the streak alive, and monsoon moisture has been staying to the south.

Kalina says precipitation measured at Denver International Airport this year is 3.28 inches so far, or 6.9 inches below normal.
