Denver weather: City ties a record-high temp Saturday at 93 degrees

Denver’s weather tied a record-high temperature on Saturday equaling a mark that has stood for more than a century.

The mercury climbed to 93 degrees this afternoon at Denver International Airport, according to the National Weather Service. The temperature ties the all-time mark for the city on Sept. 18 set way back in 1895.

At about 4 p.m., the temperature in Denver backed off to 90 degrees, according to the weather service. Late-afternoon skies over the city are partly cloudy and the heat of the day has likely passed for this time of year.

Earlier this month, Denver had three consecutive days — Sept. 9, 10, 11 — of record-breaking high temperatures. A dramatic cool down is expected for the city on Monday.
