Most significant storm of the season set to hit Thornton, potentially bring blizzard conditions

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 5:06am MDT

The much-discussed winter storm is now descending on eastern Colorado. All indications are that the nasty, winter weather conditions we were expecting will occur and create hazardous conditions.

The first part of the morning will see rain and a rain / snow mix. Currently the transition to all snow is expected to occur by mid-morning. At that time, moderate to heavy snow will seen.

The snow will be coupled with powerful winds with gusts potentially exceeding 50 mph. This will create drifting snow and limit visibility greatly.

Total snow accumulations for Thornton look to be in the 4 to 7 inch range, perhaps a bit more depending on how things play out.

Our high temperature for the day was already seen and the mercury will decrease through the day.

By 5:00pm we will be down to the mid to upper 20s. Snow should start to ease after about 5:00pm with only light snow seen after that and lasting through much of the night. Strong wind will continue overnight. Look for lows tonight to dip to the mid-20s.

A Blizzard Warning is in effect from 10:00am until midnight. Do not travel if you do not need to!
