Thornton’s workweek starts off with mild temps, some smoke above

A pretty good looking Monday ahead for us. We will see temps a bit below normal and only a slight chance for thunderstorms but with some smoke above.

Sunny skies will be the rule for most of the day. It will, however, be hazy as smoke from wildfires in Canada and Pacific Northwest arrive. This afternoon we have just the slightest chance for a thunderstorm. Highs will top out in the mid-80s.

Tonight, skies will be mostly clear with the smoke lingering above. Lows will be around the 60-degree mark.

Thornton’s weekend starts out toasty but cooler temps, good chances for thunderstorms await

Friday offers up conditions like we saw for much of the week with very warm temps and a chance for thunderstorms. We then cool down Saturday and Sunday and see better chances for precipitation.

For today, mostly sunny skies will be above in the morning then, as usual, cloud cover increases in the afternoon. Highs will top out right near the average high for the date of 91 degrees. The afternoon brings a good chance for thunderstorms with gusty winds and brief, heavy rain being possible. Tonight, storm activity will ease after sunset and skies will be mostly clear. Lows will be in the low 60s.

Saturday sees us cool down a good bit with highs in the mid-80s expected. With increased moisture aloft, partly sunny skies will be above. We may see a sprinkle of rain early then the afternoon will offer up some scattered thunderstorms. Saturday night, cloud cover lingers and lows dip around 60 degrees.

Sunday will be the coolest day of the three day period and bring the best chance for precipitation. It will be mostly cloudy and highs will reach the low 80s. A bit of rain will be possible in the morning then chances increase in the afternoon, particularly late afternoon and evening.

Have a great weekend!

Warm temps Wednesday, another chance for thunderstorms in Thornton

We have certainly been loving the thunderstorms of the last couple afternoons. Today, we stand another chance for some activity plus slightly cooler temperatures.

Mostly sunny skies start us off and will be with us this morning. Then, as in recent days, cloud cover will increase in the afternoon. High temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 80s. The afternoon brings another chance for thunderstorms during a somewhat brief window. Look for the best chances from about 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

This evening, some thunderstorms may linger but activity, if any, will be greatly decreased. Skies tonight will see clearing and overnight lows will dip to around 60 degrees.
