According To NOAA Denver/Boulder, CO, Denver International Airport reached a high of 69 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday. That ties the record high for that day that was set in 1895. The area has experienced warm temperatures throughout the fall, along with a substantial drought in measureable snow accumulation.
Thankfully, a cold front is expected to impact the area this morning, which should drop temperatures by 10 degrees. Along with that, the mountains in the area are expected to see snowfall today. The ski areas in Colorado are in desperate need of it, especially with the holidays approaching.
The temperatures at D.I.A. reached 69 at 1:58 MST which ties the record high for this date set in 1895.
