DENVER (CBS4) – Yesterday evening CBS4 was the only place you heard mention of a possible record high on Wednesday…and that’s exactly what happened: the high reached 67 degrees at 3:16pm breaking the old record high of 66 set back in 1986. The high downtown reached 68. In fairness to today’s record – it was the coolest record high of the entire month of February and the only one in the 60s…so it was fairly easy to break. Tomorrow is a different story: the record high is 70 for the date…but the result should be the same – that record should fall as we are predicting a high getting into the lower 70s.
Then we will be done with record breaking for a while…but we will stay mild: look for mid 60s under partly sunny skies to end the week on Friday. Then more clouds and a high in the lower 60s for Saturday; mid 60s again on Sunday but also a slight chance for an isolated shower late in the day. For the President’s Day Holiday on Monday, look for a high in the low to mid 60s under partly cloudy skies.
