Well, here it comes. Our next storm system is fast approaching and with it we are going to see conditions more like what we expect in January than November.

There might be just a hint of sun at dawn but clouds will soon fill in and cover us for the balance of the day. As they do, we will begin to see some flurries / light snow and those will be with us through mid to late afternoon. We aren’t expecting much accumulation during the daytime hours, maybe an inch.

By about 4:00pm, snow intensity and coverage will increase and last until the pre-dawn hours tomorrow morning. During that period, an additional 2 to 4 inches will be possible. The afternoon commute should not be too bad although if there is melting and then freezing, ice could become a big factor. Tomorrow morning’s drive will be more challenging.

Temperatures are going to be the most notable feature of this system. Thornton looks to stay at the low to mid-20s throughout most of the day today then we start to get colder after 3:00pm. Overnight, lows are going to drop into the single digits.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from noon today until 9:00am tomorrow.  For all the latest, hit up our Winter Weather Briefing Page.
