After one last shot from Old Man Winter, Thornton clears up

Thornton's weather forecast for Saturday, March 20, 2010

Sunny skies return to Thornton but temperatures remain cool.

Old Man Winter didn’t go down without a fight yesterday as he closed out Thornton’s last day of winter with a snowstorm. Today we look to start to bounce back on the first day of spring although temperatures will remain chilly.

Yesterday’s snowstorm dumped anywhere from 5 inches of snow on the eastern suburbs to well over a foot in the foothills (click here for the snowfall reports). Here at ThorntonWeather.com we recorded 5.2 inches.  March is Denver’s snowiest month with an average of 11.7 inches.  There may be more to come!

Roadways at lower elevations were mostly wet while in the high country, accidents forced the closure of some highways and chain laws were in effect. Get the latest Colorado & Denver road report here.

Today we will start out the weekend with lingering cold temperatures although we will see the return of some sun. Highs will be in the mid-30’s under mostly sunny skies as the storm system moves toward the east.

Sunday we continue to bounce back and will start to make short work of melting that fresh snow. Sunny skies will be overhead and high temperatures will be in the low to mid-50’s.

As we enter the next workweek, high pressure over the region continues the warming trend. Highs on Monday will be in the low to mid-60’s with mostly sunny skies.

Tuesday and into Wednesday another storm system has the potential to impact the Front Range although right now it isn’t looking to be as significant we the one yesterday. Tuesday’s temperatures should reach the mid-50’s but there will be a slight chance for rain showers. Overnight Tuesday and lasting into Wednesday there is a chance we could see some snow again.

The latter part of the week we will be a bit cooler than normal but still should have pretty nice days on tap for Thursday and Friday.

    Thanks for all the updates yesterday – much appreciated! Your coverage was better than watching live TV – without all the BS. 🙂
