Thornton’s Tuesday brings very warm temps, high fire danger

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 5:03am MDT

Our temperatures rebound today and climb to about 10 degrees above normal. More notable, will be high fire danger brought on by gusty winds and low humidity.

We start the day with sunny skies and other than a few clouds in the afternoon, the view will be largely unobstructed. Temperatures start out cool but then will begin a steady climb with highs in the mid to upper 80s, well above the average of 77 degrees for today.

An approaching trough is going to bring on gusty winds by late morning that will last into the evening. Coupled with low humidity and tinder dry fuels, the fire danger is very high.

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning that is in effect from 11:00am to 8:00pm. Any fires that do get started could see rapid growth and extreme fire behavior. Please be very careful!  Read the complete text of the warning here.

Winds will die down tonight with skies remaining mostly clear. Lows will be dipping to around 50 degrees.
