Storm to start winding down Tuesday morning

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016 6:34am MDT

February has certainly started out with a bang as a significant winter storm has struck. The prolonged event however is coming to an end this morning and conditions will be improving.

Early this morning roads were snowpacked and slippery but certainly not impassasble. Students are undoubtedly happy campers though as all area school districts are closed for the day.

Here in Thornton, as of 4:00am, we had recorded 10.5 inches total snowfall from the event. Some additional accumulation can be expected this morning but things have already started to ease and will truly taper off after about 8:00am. A few flurries will be possible during the day with things ended entirely by mid-afternoon or so. The Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until noon.

It will remain cold today with a high only in the mid-20s. Couple the cold temperatures with wind gusts in the teens and it will be uncomfortable outside. Skies will begin clearing this evening and that is going to lead to bitter cold temperatures overnight and early tomorrow morning. Look for overnight lows around 7 degrees with wind chill temperatures dipping below zero.
