Monday, January 28th, 2019 6:50pm MDT

Time lapse video: Thornton’s first snowstorm of 2017

Below is a time lapse video from our east webcam covering the majority of […]

The week started with mild temperatures and a definite feeling of spring in the air.  She closed out the week with a significant snowstorm and plenty of cold. The long-expected storm arrived on the evening of Friday the 15th with rain.  Overnight into […]

Time lapse video: Thornton’s March 23, 2016 blizzard

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016 1:48pm MDT

To say the storm that pounded the Colorado Front Range was a big one does not do it justice.  In less than 24 hours Thornton would see blizzard conditions and our second heaviest snowfall of the previous 10 years. Light rain began in the early morning hours but that soon transitioned to snow.  The white […]
