Currently in Denver - July 21, 2022

The weather, currently.

Mid 90s and mostly sunny skies for Thursday, July 21st.

If it seems like we've had hot weather lately, it is because we have! We are heading into our 32nd day of 90°F temperatures for the Denver-Metro area. On average, we see 44 days with temperatures at 90°F or above. It also looks like we aren't breaking that 90°F streak anytime soon!

So here is what is happening for your Thursday:

1) Morning heats up quickly, as usual.

2) Afternoon temperatures will be in the mid-90s.

3) Looking ahead, we have the potential to see cooler weather coming in the next 5 days. Here's hoping!

I enthusiastically shouted, 'Climate change!' — which he promptly shot down: 'No one wants to hear jokes about climate change, it isn’t funny.'"

"He had a point. The climate crisis, its deadly impacts, and the chronic injustices that underpin it aren’t inherently chortle-worthy. But for some, that’s exactly why comedy can be a powerful tool in how we deal with it."
