About time we had a real summer. Unfortunately, today was the last really warm day in the forecast.
Are you tired of hearing about this summer’s record-breaking weather in Colorado?
Brace yourself for more: 2012 has seen more days reaching 90 degrees or warmer in Fort Collins than any other year on record.
As of Monday, Fort Collins had 55 days 90 degrees or hotter, shattering the record for enduring heat by an unprecedented 10 days, according to the Colorado Climate Center’s monthly weather data report compiled by researcher Wendy Ryan.
The previous record of 45 days 90 degrees and hotter was set in 1960.
Despite the fact that the heat wouldn’t go away, no high temperature records were broken, but two were tied: 97 degrees on Aug. 6 set in 1889 and 95 degrees on Aug. 28, a record set in 1899.

It’s been mostly good down here in GA the last month-month in a half. With an exception of a week or so, it doesn’t compare to the summer of 2007.
Which CO2 volcano erupted in 1898?
Yeah rock. Our relatively warm period this year started in Feb and lasted through June. It was relatively dry too. January was cold, July about average, and August was cool and wet.
It’s kinda funny considering that my parents in law are going on a vacation in Colorado tomorrow. Talk about perfect timing to escape hot weather in Texas.
