Thornton to enjoy a two-day warm up then turn much colder by end of the weekend

Friday, October 12th, 2018 5:39am MDT

A bit of a mixed bag of weather for us over the three day period. Friday and Saturday, while remaining cooler than normal, will be dry and see our warmest temps of recent days. Then, a significant system will move in bringing cold and snow Saturday night into Sunday.

We start things off on Friday with some clouds early then those will depart leading to sunny skies by mid-morning and lasting through the rest of the day. Temperatures will top out in the low 60s, still below normal but far warmer than recent days. Friday night skies will remain clear with lows in the mid-30s.

Saturday starts out sunny with a bit of an increase in cloud cover through the day as the next system gets closer. Highs will be near the 60 degree mark. Look for some breezy winds in the afternoon. By the evening, it will be mostly cloudy with the arrival of the cold front and storm system.

Some evening rain will be possible with a change over to snow after dark. Snow will continue overnight Saturday night into Sunday morning with low temps into the low 20s.

Sunday morning snow will ease with only a few flurries in the afternoon. We could see a few inches total accumulation from the event. Sunday temperatures will be quite chilly with highs only in the mid-20s. Overnight Sunday night into Monday morning, the mercury will drop to near 10 degrees.

Enjoy the initial warmth and be ready for the cold to come.
