Wednesday brings very warm temps with breezy winds and increased fire danger

Wednesday, May 11th, 2022 5:03am MDT

Today Thornton will see summer-like temperatures with a plenty of sun above. We will, unfortunately, also see wind and that is going to bring an increased fire risk.

Sunny skies start us off then we will see a few clouds but nothing too intrusive. Temperatures will climb quickly bringing us to a high in the upper 80s. Denver’s record high for the date is 89 degrees and that may very well fall.

Winds will be calm initially but then start picking up by mid-morning, maxing out in the mid-afternoon. The wind, low humidity and dry fuels have prompted a Red Flag Warning as fire danger will be quite high.

Tonight, winds will ease as sunset approaches and skies will clear. Temperatures overnight will be mild with lows only dropping to around 50 degrees.
