Thornton’s Tuesday to feature cooler temperatures, clouds and showers

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 5:07am MDT

Yesterday we received our first taste of springtime thunderstorms of the season. Today things cool down, stay damp and may deliver some more excitement.

Things start off with a Dense Fog Advisory in effect until 8:00am. It will be a bit patchy but be aware that conditions may be hazardous in some spots. Cloudy skies will be above through much of the day but some blue may, briefly sneak in at different points.

Temperatures today will be largely dependent on the clouds. If they are dense, we may have a hard time reaching the forecast high. Right now we are expecting temps to top out in the mid-50s but they may fall short.

A few, scattered, light showers may be seen this morning but nothing that will amount to much. This afternoon brings a much better chance for showers and thunderstorms, particularly after 3:00pm.

How strong activity is will depend greatly on the aforementioned temperatures. Warmer readings would aid convection and generate stronger storms. Cooler temps will keep things more stable and calm.

Tonight, some light showers will be possible through the night. Look for lows down to about 40 degrees.
