March comes in like a lion with a winter storm set to impact first weekend of the month

Friday, March 1st, 2019 5:01am MDT

After all the cold of last month, it was nice to warm up some yesterday and today will be seasonal. However, Mother Nature is set to deliver a reminder this weekend that winter is not over.

For today, mostly sunny skies start things off but cloud cover will be increasing as a cold front moves in. High temperatures today will be right near 50 degrees at about noon then begin descending. This evening and overnight we may see some light snow but with only minimal accumulations, if any.

Saturday is when things look to get interesting as a more powerful system sets up. Mostly cloudy to cloudy skies will be above with high temperatures only around 30 degrees. We’ll see some light, accumulating snow during the daytime hours.

Saturday evening, snow intensity and coverage should increase and be persistent overnight. Thornton could see 3 to 5 inches by sunrise Sunday morning.

Sunday, things will settle down but with some light snow possible through the day. It will be very cold with highs only in the teens.

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued and is in effect from 9:00am Saturday to 5:00am Sunday. The service warns of 4 to 8 inches snow during that period but the heaviest amounts should be to our west and south. Certainly travel is likely to be impacted. Read the complete watch here.
