Sure, it's summer in Colorado and it gets hot but it seems like Mother Nature is bringing the heat and kicking it up a notch a little this week in many parts of the country but it seems and feels like Colorado is getting the brunt of her heat wrath with daily high temperatures getting above or pretty close to 100 degrees and record lows that are staying between 70 and 75 degrees.

According to the National Weather Service, Denver broke a record of record warmth for a low temperature on July 18th when it only dropped to 72 degrees when it broke the record warm low of 70 from 1878.

  When you step foot outside at 3am and it feels hot already, you know the day is going to be a scorcher and that has been the case for about the past 5-6 days and there isn't too much relief in sight, at least over the next 5-7 days, unless you think the low 90's is relief.



Granted, we're still a ways away from records in terms of consecutive days above 90 degrees but looking at this forecast from our friends at KDVR,  it appears as we may be heading at least closer to those records over the next week or so.
