Colorado Is Super Hot

Monday's 105 degree temperature was a tie for the hottest day in Denver, ever.  Two previous days where that hot: August 8, 1878 and July 20, 2005.  Various other heat records are being set left and right.

UPDATE: 105 degrees again today (June 26, 2012), the first time in Denver history that there have been two 105 degree days in a row and a tie for the record number of 100 degree plus days in the row in Denver (five tied in 1989 and 2005).  The forecast high for tomorrow is 93 degrees so a record breaking six day streak of 100 degree plus days seems unlikely.  There is also a real possibility that average temperatures this June will be the hottest on record.
