Over the last two days, Thornton has seen its share of severe weather.  Thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday afternoons provided excitement but calmer weather is forecasted.

On Sunday, thunderstorms boomed over the northern part of town just as the sun was setting.  They provided a fantastic light show as the setting sun illuminated the thunder clouds in orange and lightning provided the flash.  These storms didn’t produce much within Thornton but further east they produced two tornadoes.

Monday the main event struck the northern half of the city.  Around 5:00pm dark, ominous clouds arrived with a green cast that warned severe weather was coming.  An astounding 0.53 inch of rain was recorded at ThorntonWeather.com in a mere 25 minutes as it dumped on the area.  Some minor street flooding was reported. 

The extended forecast calls for drier weather for the next few days.  Be sure to check our forecast for all the latest.
