Thornton’s weekend starts mild, will end much cooler

Friday, September 23rd, 2016 5:11am MST

The three-day period is going to feature some distinctly varying weather conditions. We will start out quite mild with temps well above normal but close things out with very autumn like weather and much cooler temps.

For Friday we will enjoy mostly sunny skies above as we head toward a high temperature in the low to mid-80s. A low pressure system will be moving across the western part of the state and the strong flow from it will bring gusty winds from late morning into tonight. The low humidity, dry fuels and wind will lead to an increased fire danger and a Red Flag Warning is in effect until 8:00pm so please be careful. The afternoon and evening bring us just a slight chance for thunderstorm activity.

The low pressure system continues tracking to our northwest and north but also brings down a cold front Saturday into Sunday. This will bring much cooler temperatures tomorrow with highs down near 70 degrees. We should see a good bit of sun during the day though and just a bit of breezy winds. Tomorrow evening overnight into Sunday morning there will be a slight chance for some light rain, unfortunately not much of a chance and if any does fall, it isn’t expected to amount to much.

Sunday will bring a definite taste of fall. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds but most notable will be the temperatures. Look for highs to close out the weekend at only around 60 degrees.

Have a great weekend!
