Monday to bring increasing snowfall, difficult conditions

Monday, February 1st, 2016 5:34am MDT

Don’t be fooled by the little bit of snow that you woke up to this morning. Our latest storm continues to be on track and is still expected to deliver a healthy shot of snow during the daytime hours today and into tonight.

Cloudy skies will be above today and will be cold with highs only up to around 28 degrees. We will see upslope winds out of the northeast.

As for the real story, the snow, Thornton received 1.1 inches overnight but we will be adding to that total. Models are in good agreement as to what lies ahead for the next 24 hours.

Snow will be becoming widespread by mid to late morning with moderate snowfall rates expected at that point. Look for 2 to 5 inches between dawn and sunset with an additional 2 to 5 inches tonight. Total storm accumulations for Thornton should be in the 5 to 10 inch range. Areas to our south and west will see more.

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect and will be so until noon Tuesday. While your morning commute won’t be too bad, the trip home is likely to be quite different. Tomorrow morning’s commute as well will likely be a rough one. Exercise caution as conditions deteriorate throughout the day today. Get all the latest on our Winter Weather Briefing Page.
