Much cooler, cloudier conditions Tuesday; slight chance for t-storms

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 5:48am MST

Initially much of Thornton was skunked by yesterday’s evening thunderstorms; that changed just before midnight.  Thanks to a cold front moving in overnight we will see much cooler temperatures with just a slight chance for afternoon and evening storms.

One heck of a lightning show kicked things off just before sunset last night but most activity was to our west, then to our southeast.  Then things changed late at night.  In a span of about 35 minutes beginning at 11:45pm last night, Thornton received 0.48” of much needed rain.

Today we start out with mostly cloudy skies and then will see the cover easing a bit toward mid-morning.  High temperatures will only be in the low-80s today, a far cry from the 98 degree high we saw yesterday.

By mid to late afternoon thunderstorms will begin moving off the foothills.  Most of this activity is expected to be toward the south side of the Denver metro area, across the Palmer Divide and the southern foothills.  However some scattered activity may work its way up to us, particularly in the 7:00pm to 9:00pm timeframe.
