Denver smashes record low temperature for April 13

It was the coldest Denver temperature this late in the season since 1953.

DENVER — It was officially cold in the Mile High City.

Denver International Airport (DIA) fell to 10 degrees Fahrenheit Wednesday morning to set a new record low for April 13.

The previous record low was 15 degrees Fahrenheit set in 2020, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

If this felt unusually late in the year for Denver to be this cold, you'd be right. This was the latest 10 degree or colder temperature in Denver since 1953.

Denver will only see a high in the low to mid-40s Wednesday with a few snow showers and continued brisk winds.

A Red Flag Warning is out again for portions of eastern Colorado Wednesday from noon to 7 p.m. A Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory continue for most high country locations until 6 p.m.

The Denver metro area warms into the 50s Thursday and then into the 60s for Friday and through the weekend into Monday, with a bump into the 70s by Tuesday.
