Cheyenne Sets Record For Highest Average Temp

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The National Weather Service says Cheyenne’s average temperature from June through August was a record 69.9 degrees.

The Associated Press reports that’s 3.5 degrees higher than average for the period.

The previous record for the three months was an average of 69.5 degrees, set in 1881.

This year’s highest temperature was 96 degrees on June 23. The temperature was 90 degrees or above for 26 days from June through August, compared with the average of 12 days for the period.

Electricity consumption also rose. Cheyenne Light Fuel and Power says peak use was a record 187 megawatts on July 20. The old record was 181 megawatts, set last year.

The utility says the heat and population growth contribute to the increased use of power.
