Record High 82 Today

By: DenverMark , 1:18 AM GMT on March 31, 2010

At 3:32 PM MDT, Denver International Airport reached 82 degrees, for a new record high for the date. The old record was a very old one...81 degrees which had stood since 1879! In our neighborhood in Thornton, the high was also 82. In downtown Denver at 21st and Broadway, the high was 82 as well. The highest temperature in Colorado was 88 in Lamar, with Burlington reaching 87. Most locations on the eastern plains were in the 80s.

This was the warmest March day in Denver since the all-time March record of 84 was set on the 26th in 1971. The only other times it has ever been this warm or warmer in March were on the 18th in 1907 (82) and the 28th in 1963 (83).

Tomorrow will still be warm, but not record-breaking, with the high forecast near 70. By Friday it will turn much cooler with a high only in the mid 40s and a chance of rain or snow showers.

Hi Mark,

From our Home to Yours
Merry Christmas and a Healthy & Happy New Year 2012!

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn%u2019t before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn%u2019t come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

- Dr. Seuss

Hello Mark,

I heard about all your really warm weather earlier this week.. now I see it is more back to normal!

What a crazy year our weather has been so far and I fear it will get crazier as the year goes on!

enjoy your weekend.

Didn't you guys have like a foot of snow or so about a week ago? Welcome to Spring in Denver I suppose. (My son lives there.)

Plapman said they just hit a record for warmth up there on the Canadian prairie, too.

We're having a lovely stretch just now - low humidity, 40s at night, 70s in the daytime. The humidity's slinking around and will show up by the weekend, but hey! We'll take what we can get.

I saw ColoradoKat say something somewhere about snow coming and thought she was kidding. Guess not!
