The storm that moved through the Front Range yesterday really didn’t yield much for Thornton with a mere 0.03″ of precipitation. Areas farther south in the metro area saw quite a bit more; our sister station in Arvada had 0.16″ by contrast. We did also see a little bit of cloud to cloud lightning picked up on our lightning detector which serves as a reminder that thunderstorms will be here soon.
Look for temperatures today (Friday) to be near 60. Saturday looks to be the warmest day with a high near 65 but it will be breezy and will cool quickly in the afternoon as a minor disturbance moves through the area. Sunday will be much like today. Further ahead, a front arriving on Monday could bring precipitation to the lower elevations here on the plains although the best chance for moisture right now looks to be in the mountains.
