Hot and dry conditions remain Tuesday, some hope for relief by the end of the week

Tuesday, August 25th, 2020 5:15am MST

For today, Thornton will see little change in the weather with smoke continuing to be seen and temps above normal. We are optimistic however that by the end of the week we will see the high pressure ridge break down and with it, cooler temperatures.

Today starts out with sunny skies but plenty of haze from the wildfire smoke. A few clouds will move in later this morning and the afternoon will see mostly to partly sunny skies. High temperatures will again reach the mid to upper 90s, well above the average high for the date of 86 degrees.

The afternoon and evening bring just the slightest chance for a thunderstorm but gusty winds will be the most likely outcome of any storms that do form.

Mostly clear skies will be seen overnight and lows will dip to the mid-60s.

Looking ahead, we do see the ridge begin to ease and a cold front pushing in on Friday. That should help to usher in better (but not great) chances for precipitation and temperatures closer to normal for the weekend. A second front on Monday will have the potential to bring true relief with even cooler readings.
