Friday's heat breaks multiple Denver records

The heat broke the daily temperature record as well as the record for being this hot this late in September.

DENVER — The high temperature in Denver on Friday topped out at 99 degrees – that's six degrees hotter than the record for the day and breaks the record for being that hot this late in September in Denver.

The previous record for Sept. 10 was 93 degrees set back in 2018, but it being 99 degrees this late in September means it's the hottest it's ever been in recorded history this late in the month for the city.

The hottest Denver has ever been in September was 101 degrees, and that was on Sept. 5, 2020. 

Think the heat is crazy? An inch of snow fell on Sept. 8, 2020, tying it for the second-earliest recorded snow in city history. Other parts of the state saw as much as 16 inches of snow from the same storm.
