Spring snowstorm hits Thornton Thursday, brings a return of wintry conditions

Thursday, April 16th, 2020 5:09am MST

Snow in April is not unusual at all and Mother Nature is delivering a typical, heavy, wet spring snow today. Moderate accumulations will be seen and temperatures will be far below normal.

Cloudy skies start us off and will be with us throughout the day. High temperatures will stay below freezing with a top mark in only the upper 20s expected.

Moderate snowfall rates will be seen through the morning before things ease this afternoon. Total accumulations of 5 to 7 inches are expected. The pre-dawn hours saw roads becoming slushy and quite slick so if you venture out, do be careful, particularly this morning. The Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 6:00pm.

Tonight, any lingering flurries will come to an end by about 9:00 and we will see a bit of clearing. Overnight lows will be in the mid-teens.
