Denver sets record low

Also tied a record low on Tuesday, while the high country saw a dusting of snow.


The mercury dipped to 47 degrees this morning at Denver International Airport, sett a record low for Aug. 19. The previous record of 48 was set three times, in 2002, 1967 and 1960.

“It’s just going to be a nice, pleasant, Autumn-like day,” said Eric Thaler, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Boulder.

“A nice, pleasant Autumn-like day” … except that autumn does not begin until September 23.

Denver also tied a record low of 47 degrees on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, snow could be seen along Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park this morning (Aug. 19, 2015).

  1. So where is the “accumulated heat” hiding, eh?

    IF “back radiation” causes a ‘build up of heat’, where is it?

    Not in Denver…

    And if ONE temperature, in Denver, can not be used to demonstrate “Global Warming”, then something else is dominating. And if something else is dominating there, how can you say it is not dominating elsewhere? And might have caused temperatures to show both a rising trend in the ’80s and a cooling trend now, and it is only that ‘other thing’ and temperatures not Global Warming and heat…

  2. Couldn’t tell all this was going on in Colorado by looking at the National Weather Service’s national weather map yesterday…

  3. The actual article states that this week’s weather extremes mimics the same week in 1960, when virtually the same thing happened – a record high on Aug 15th and again on Aug 22nd, with record cold on the 17th and 18th.

    That being said, any talk about “record warmth” should be put into context of this being a cyclical process and not the result of AGW. I’ve been arguing on another warmist website that “consensus” of scientists who agree that the ACTIVITIES of mankind are causing global warming – which can be anything, and doesn’t expressly implicate CO2 emissions.

    Needless to say, they didn’t like that refutation but also were unable to dispute it. Point, match, set.

  4. Record Cold Hits Central States; Another Chilly Blast Still to Come. Published Aug 20 2015
    Highs in the 50s and 60s will infiltrate parts of Montana, northern Wyoming and the western Dakotas on Saturday. This is about 15 to 25 degrees below late-August averages. The cool air will then spread throughout the Plains and Midwest on Sunday, dropping high temperatures 10 to 20 degrees below average from the Texas Panhandle and central Oklahoma to the Dakotas and Minnesota.

  5. In the Milwaukee area, today’s forecast calls for a high of 75 today and a low tonight of 54. Springfield, MO – breaks old record low high temperature of 79 set in 1936Joplin, MO – breaks old record low high temperature of 76 set in 1952Vicky-Rolla, MO – breaks old record low high temperature of 75 set in 1900West Plains, MO – ties the record low high temperature of 72 set in 1995.
