DENVER (CBS4) - It’s something we haven’t been able to say for the past few summers, but this year, we’re lacking on the number of 90 degree days in Denver.

Personally, I’m not complaining!

At 3:02 p.m. on August 13, Denver International Airport hit 90 degrees, making it the 24th time in 2014. There were 6 days in June and 17 in July with temperatures in the 90s.

A normal year will bring about 40 days to Denver with the afternoon high at or above 90 degrees.

The record number of 90 degree days in one season was just two years ago, with 73 in 2012.

Since the year 2000, we’ve seen 40 or more days in the 90s each year except 2004 and 2009.

Both of those years produced 20 or less days with daytime highs above 90 degrees.

2000-2014 90° DAYS
