It's Hot And We Hope You're Not

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

—–

It may come as a surprise, but lots of older homes along Colorado’s Front Range were not constructed with the expectation of back-to-back-to-back days of 100 degree weather as we’re seeing this week–which makes sense since 100 degree+ highs have historically happened on less than 1% of summer days in the Denver area. If you know anybody at risk from heat-related illness, this afternoon would be a good time to check on them and make sure they’re staying cool.

And yes it is human-caused climate change, and yes climate change will still exist when it gets cold next winter.

It’s a bit sad we still need to say so.

  1. Depending on which weather service or thermometer I look at, it is 98, 99, or 100 degrees now. This is the 8th day of 95+ degrees this year. Glancing at the extended forecasts, we may be done with those days through the end of the month.
