Dose of weekend wintry weather to have significant impact on Thornton

Friday, May 20th, 2022 5:08am MDT

Ready or not, here it comes. Mother Nature is set to deliver a potent dose of wintry weather with much colder temperatures, rain, and yes, snow.

Things are already starting up this morning with drizzle. Rain coverage and intensity will be increasing through the morning. By late afternoon we will begin to see a transition to snow, possibly impacting the evening commute.

The Winter Storm Warning will be going into effect at 4:00pm and run through noon Saturday. From this afternoon through sunrise tomorrow, Thornton is looking to receive 2 to 5 inches of the white stuff with a chance to exceed that. Temperatures will be dropping and as such a Freeze Warning will be in effect tonight as well.

Saturday, things will slowly wind down. Some snow will continue to fall during the daytime hours, perhaps adding in inch or so to the totals. Some clearing should be seen late. Saturday night, lows again will dip well below freezing.

Sunday the storm will have moved out but it will remain on the cool side. Highs will be in the mid-50s with a chance for a PM shower and thunderstorm.

As we have been talking about in recent days, there is good potential for this storm to cause damage to trees and foliage and possibly cause power outages. You should certainly be prepared and do your best to knock the snow off your trees as often as possible. Our Winter Weather Briefing Page will be your one-stop-shop for the event.

* Winter Storm Warning 4:00pm Friday to noon Saturday
