A brief return to wintry weather for Thornton’s Thursday

Thursday, March 4th, 2021 5:19am MDT

In the wake of a few mild days, colder temperatures and the potential for a shot of snow arrive. Precipitation is a certainty, what form that takes is not though.

Mostly cloudy skies start us off but soon we will be entirely cloudy. Winds will be light initially but then north winds become quite breezy in the afternoon. High temperatures today will top out in the mid-40s right about noon, then begin a descent.

As for precipitation, the morning might some sprinkles, perhaps with a few snowflakes mixed in. This afternoon is when the bulk of the moisture arrives with showers becoming likely from noon through the evening.

As mentioned above, there is still a lot of uncertainty about what form the precipitation will take. Temperatures are going to be the key factor as the warmer it is, the more chance for rain versus snow. If it gets cold enough though, we could see an inch or two of the white stuff with an off chance for a bit more.

Tonight, any precipitation should end by midnight and skies will begin clearing. Overnight lows tonight will drop to the mid to upper 20s.
