Extraordinary warmth to be followed by unsettled conditions for Thornton’s weekend

Friday, February 10th, 2017 5:03am MST

A bit of a mixed bag of weather for us over the three-day period. We will see potentially record-setting warmth today to be followed by cooler temperatures and chances for precipitation Saturday and Sunday.

For today, we start out extraordinarily warm due to those strong, warm downslope winds. That gives us a head start toward a forecast high of 74 degrees. The record high for today’s date is 71 degrees set in 1951 so it certainly is in jeopardy. The wind forecast is a bit tricky but we do expect it to settle down a bit but remain breezy. Overnight tonight it will be partly cloudy with temperature dropping to the low 40s.

A weak system moves through tomorrow and will impact the bulk of the weekend. Cloud cover will be increasing tomorrow and by the end of the day it will be mostly cloudy. Temperatures will remain above normal, although cooler than today, with highs in the mid-50s. We may see a few raindrops in the afternoon with rain becoming more likely in the evening. Saturday night / Sunday morning get colder with lows dropping to the mid-20s.

On Sunday the system works its way out but not until we see just a slight chance for a little bit of snow early in the morning. Then we should see skies gradually clear and we work toward a high in the mid-40s, right near normal.

Have a great weekend!
