Thornton to get one more very warm and breezy day Thursday

Thursday, May 19th, 2022 5:40am MDT

The warm before the storm or perhaps it could be called the days of fire and ice. Today we again will see mercury readings well above normal but the focus is on tomorrow and Saturday when Mother Nature looks to chill things out and bring a late May snow.

For today, mostly to partly sunny skies will be above. High temperatures today will be topping out in the upper 80s. Winds will be picking up this morning becoming quite breezy this afternoon. The wind, low humidity and dry fuel have prompted a Red Flag Warning to be issued.

Tonight, a cold front will push through ushering in big changes. We will have just a slight chance for a rain shower after midnight and overnight lows will dip to around 40 degrees.

That cold front is certainly going to be the talk of the town for the next couple of days. Temperatures are going to be significantly cooler and we will finally be receiving some much-needed precipitation. Some of that precipitation will, potentially, come in the form of snow.

We’re thinking Thornton could see 2 to 4 inches from Friday evening through Saturday morning. Much of that will melt due to warm ground temperatures, however, it will have the potential to coat trees and powerlines causing damage.

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Friday at noon to Saturday at noon. You certainly will want to prepare and work to protect any sensitive foliage as temperatures Friday night will dip to around freezing.
