With a winter storm bearing down on Colorado and set to hit tonight, the big question is: How much snow? The storm is not looking quite as impressive as it was just 12 hours ago and as we have been saying, the real story will be the cold that comes with it.
Below is one forecast model’s solution for Thornton and it falls within the 3 to 6 inch range we have been discussing on our Facebook and Google+ pages today. Right now we are currently thinking Thornton will be at the lower end of that range so kids most likely won’t see a snow day tomorrow.
Temperatures are going to be the big thing to watch as daytime highs tomorrow will only be in the low to mid20s. Coupled with winds to 30+ mph, wind chill temperatures will become dangerous and in the single digits.
Overnight Thursday and into Friday morning, it gets even colder with temperatures dropping into the single digits. While it will warm to at or just above freezing Friday with some sun, continued colder than normal temperatures will linger through the weekend.
