Thornton’s weekend starts out warmer but much colder weather soon arrives

It has been 10 days since we have seen a mercury reading at or above normal. The good news is that today we may finally break that streak. The bad news is that from there, it is all downhill with very cold temperatures on the horizon.

For Friday, we will have partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies above. High temperatures should top out right near the average of 45 degrees for the date. Winds will be breezy, particularly this afternoon, so it probably won’t feel that warm. Tonight, skies will be partly cloudy with lows around 20 degrees.

Saturday is going to see colder air drawn in from the north. This will result in highs that likely fail to reach the freezing mark. We do see a bit of a chance for some freezing drizzle / light snow in the afternoon and evening but it isn’t expected to amount to much, if anything. Saturday night, a few flurries may be seen and lows will be dropping well into the single digits.

Sunday is when the cold begins to make itself felt. Cloudy skies will be above and high temperatures will only be in the teens. Sunday night, some light snow may be seen and lows will be dropping to below zero.

Be sure to do what you can to prepare for the cold and be careful if you venture out once the worst of it hits. Have a good weekend!
