The recent snowstorm covered not only Thornton but the vast majority of Colorado in a blanket of white. The latest satellite imagery from NASA shows the extent of the snow stretching across the state from border to border.
The satellite image, taken by NASA’s Aqua satellite on February 10th, shows the impressive snowfall received by the entire region. Not only is Colorado covered but the neighboring states of Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas are covered in snow as well.
Thornton received relatively little snowfall from the recent storm system but the temperatures were bitter cold. Denver set a record low maximum temperature for February 8th, the second time since the first of the year that mark was set.
