Currently in Denver - July 19th, 2022

The weather, currently.

Another day in the 90s for Tuesday, July 19th. 

The Denver Metro saw triple digits and the heat was unrelenting.  Tuesday won't be as bad with temperatures in the 90s, but still there is no doubt we are in the thick of summer.

Just for perspective, Tuesday will be our 30th day in the 90s for Denver. On average we see 44 days of temperatures above 90°F.

Here's a rundown on Tuesday:

1) Temperatures will heat up quickly! We will be in the mid 80s by 9 a.m.

2) Afternoon highs in the mid 90s.

3) Hot...again.

What you need to know, currently.

Heat-related deaths could triple by 2050 if there continues to be inadequate government action on overheating in UK homes, according to reporting by BBC.

Over 4.6 million homes in England experience overheating, according to a recent survey conducted in the summertime. Overheating was even more common in public housing areas, and households with people of low incomes or aged over the state pension age.

But, there were no regulations addressing overheating in new buildings until June this year.

“We’ve seen buildings designed that don’t cope well with the increased temperatures we now experience in summer,” James Prestwich of the Chartered Institute of Housing told BBC. “What we’ve seen is buildings that have been built with a lot of glass and not necessarily the best flow of air through corridors.”

As climate change continues to create more severe and frequent heat waves, the UK hit record temperatures as the first ever red heat warning comes into effect. Temperatures are expected to continue to climb up to 41°C (105.8°F) over the next two days.
