DENVER (CBS4) – We’ve been battling an Arctic airmass in eastern Colorado since Sunday afternoon. Our temperatures have been well below normal all week, and will continue to drop by the end of the week.
As of Tuesday, it has been 370 days since we’ve had a sub-zero temperature in Denver. This ranks as the nineteenth longest streak of above zero temperatures for Denver. The longest streak is 1,455 days which ended on Feb. 28, 1947.READ MORE: Colorado Senators Pass COVID Relief Bill As State GOP Leaders Blast Passage
It is looking like Saturday morning will be the time we finally dip below zero. This will the fifth latest date we’ve had to wait for a sub-zero temperature in Denver. This is also the first time since 1995 that we have had to wait this long for a sub-zero temperature.
Until this weekend, we stay on the chilly side with highs in the 20s and 30s. We plummet over the weekend as the Arctic Invasion deepens in eastern Colorado.READ MORE: COVID In Colorado: National Jewish Administers Johnson & Johnson Vaccine
