DENVER (CBS4) – The 1 p.m. temperature at Denver International Airport was 80 degrees on Wednesday. That ties the record high for Oct. 25 which was set in 2007.
With a few more hours of peak heating it could go higher.
A strong cold front is expected to move through the Mile High City on Thursday morning bringing a chance for some light rain or snow along with a huge drop in temperatures.
By Friday morning the low is forecast to be roughly 60 degrees colder than Wednesday’s high.
