Thornton’s weekend weather starts unsettled, rebounds at the end

Friday, April 21st, 2017 5:07am MDT

We finally broke out of the recent warm, dry pattern with some nice, soaking rain over the past 12 hours or so. Some showers will be lingering through today and tomorrow but then Sunday we dry out and warm back up.

For today we don’t expect to see much sun above, if at all, as the storm system very gradually winds down. High temperatures will be cool with highs only in the mid to upper 40s. Look for winds to be a bit breezy from later this morning through the afternoon. In terms of precipitation, some occasional, scattered shower activity can be expected throughout the day and into tomorrow morning.

Overnight tonight lows will be dropping to close to the freezing mark. Those low temperatures may lead to a few snowflakes in the pre-dawn hours but nothing that will be measurable.

Saturday will be a day of transition as the last pieces of the system work their way out. Highs will be in the upper 50s, perhaps hitting the 60 degree mark. Some sprinkles of rain will be possible throughout the day. Skies will be overcast initially then the late morning and afternoon should bring some clearing.

Saturday night into Sunday morning skies will continue to clear. Lows into Sunday morning will be in the mid to upper 30s.

We close out the weekend on Sunday with a gorgeous day. Look for lots of sun to be above and temperatures will bounce back with highs in the mid-70s.

Have a great weekend and use our radar to keep track of those lingering showers.
