Temperature plunges 63 degrees in Denver in 18 hours

New York Daily News 1 week ago

Denver had beach weather Wednesday. And the Colorado capital also bone-chilling dead-of-winter conditions Wednesday.

The Mile High City saw temperatures drop from 82 degrees Wednesday afternoon to below freezing by midnight, according to the National Weather Service. The mercury continued to plunge all the way to 19 degrees by about 9 a.m on Thursday morning — a 63-degree dip.

At the same time, snow powdered the city, mucking up morning commutes in the first flurry of the season.

“Everybody was in tank tops and all that yesterday," local jogger Joy Norris told ABC affiliate KMGH-TV. “Today I only encountered two people, a guy without a shirt on, and one other jogger.”

The epic temperature swing represented the most extreme drop the state has ever recorded in the month of October. But it didn’t quite reach Colorado’s record 66-degree descent of Jan. 25, 1872.
