Seems pretty standard to me.

That's the thing you will notice the most here: our heat is largely driven by how sunny it is. The second the sun goes away, the temp drops fast.

There is no normal in colorado. Averages mean next to nothing

Any temperature over 70 degrees in the sun for too long will feel uncomfortably hot. Find shade and be outside early morning and evening.

Yep. Exactly why I put quotes around "normal" in my post upthread...

My recollection is that September starts off like summer (well actually it IS still summer) and by the end it's cooling off into the more pleasant 70s...60s if we're lucky. Very occasionally we might see a bit of snow. September and October are the most consistently nice months temperature wise in Colorado. In my opinion of course.
There is weather that is unusual ... but what is "normal" around here is pretty broad.

As a person visiting your town for the summer, I can definitely say Denver's heat is no big deal IMO. Compared to my town (Phoenix), Denver's breezes during mid-day still feel good and the evenings/nights are great.

But, I've noticed that the sun is very intense here- I think that intense sun is what a lot of people consider "heat." That's misleading. Get yourself to full shade before you say it's hot out.

Summers here are hot... the good part is that it cools off every night
The mountains are cool but even towns like Glenwood that are not really high elevation are pretty hot in summer

I could be wrong, but this year didn't seem that hot compared to how it usually does

We had some hot days for sure, but I agree it didn't seem as overall hot as in other recent years.
