Yesterday most of Thornton pretty much got skipped over by the rain as it stayed north of us. It would appear that today we may be luckier and finally receive some much needed precipitation.
Scattered thunderstorms will be developing around noon and lasting into the evening. These should be more widespread and further south than what we saw yesterday.
Some of these storms will have the potential to bring brief, heavy rain that could lead to some localized flooding. Biggest flood danger will be in the foothills and along the Palmer Divide where a Flash Flood Watch will be in effect starting at noon.
In terms of temperatures, look for things to be on the order of 10 degrees or so cooler than yesterday with highs in the low to mid-80s.
