Chilly, unsettled weather for Thornton’s Thursday

Thursday, March 11th, 2021 5:12am MDT

Today is the first of two days of chilly, unsettled weather conditions. Both are simply minor precursors to the main event this weekend.

Today starts out with partly sunny skies and those will be with us throughout the daytime hours. High temperatures will top out in the mid-40s. The afternoon brings a chance for some light precipitation, perhaps in the form of a rain / snow mix. No accumulation is expected.

Tonight, cloud cover will increase. We will continue to see some light snow but little / no accumulation is expected. Overnight lows will drop to around 30 degrees.

Looking ahead, Friday will be quite similar today with chilly temps and some light rain / snow. Primary focus is on the period from Friday night through Sunday when the storm we have been talking about so much arrives. It continues to look on course to deliver a significant shot of snow over the extended period.

Changes in the expected timing and track are certainly possible between now and then, both of which would affect its impact. The National Weather Service’s Winter Storm Watch will be in effect from midnight tomorrow night to 6:00am Monday. The agency has upped its snow forecast to the 15 to 25 inch range. All the latest on our Winter Weather Briefing Page.
