Thornton’s Thursday brings mild temps, chance for thunderstorms

Thursday, April 14th, 2016 5:18am MDT

We will get to enjoy one more warm day today before weather conditions become much more unsettled. Today we will see one of our warmest days of the year thus far with just a chance that thunderstorms intrude later.

We start out Thursday with mostly to partly sunny skies above and similar sky conditions will be with us throughout the day. Temperatures will be climb to a high of around 77 degrees. That is well above the average of 61 degrees for the date but also a good ways short of the record for the date of 83 degrees (1963).

By the early afternoon we expect to see some isolated thunderstorm activity develop, much as it has over the last few days. Activity looks like it will primarily be high-based bringing mostly gusty winds, perhaps a few showers. Slight chances for storms will continue into the evening.

The potent storm system we have been watching will begin to make itself felt tomorrow. Initially this will come in the form of cooler temperatures and rain and thunderstorms Friday afternoon. Overnight tomorrow temperatures should get cold enough to see snow start to fall.

Precipitation is expected throughout the day Saturday and into Sunday. What form that takes – rain or snow – is yet to be determined. Should it remain cold enough, we may very well be looking at a healthy bit of accumulation. The system is just now coming ashore off the Pacific so it is too early to start throwing out numbers.
