DENVER -- Record keepers are staying busy this month!

Just weeks after Denver broke the record for the warmest temperature (80 degrees) ever recorded for the month of February, comes another mark in the history book.

The temperature in Denver reached 73 degrees at its peak Tuesday, beating the previous record of 71 degrees set in 1995. 

This month has already broke the record for the second warmest February on record, and we still have a week left!

Temperatures will take dive to end the week, as readings finally drop back to more "February-Like" levels in the 30s for highs and teens for lows by the weekend.
