DENVER (AP) - The National Weather Service says Denver hit 89 degrees Monday, breaking a 130-year-old heat record.

Meteorologist Kari Bowen tells the Denver Post (https://goo.gl/uCezhP ) an upper-level ridge has been sticking over Colorado, causing temperatures to rise. But the pattern is expected to change Tuesday, with possible thunderstorms in the evening.

More rain in the mountains also could fall Wednesday.

The Weather Service says Denver’s previous heat record of 88 degrees was set in 1885.
