Tuesday in Thornton chills out, offers up some light snow

The cold front is working its way south, a bit delayed, but still on its way. With its arrival around 7:00am, a much cooler day than recent ones is on tap.

Mostly cloudy to cloudy skies will be above for most of the day. We have actually already seen our high for the day with temperatures cooling a few degrees as the front arrives. Daytime highs will be in the mid-30s.

We begin to see chances for precipitation around 8:00am and then continuing into the late afternoon / evening. There isn’t much to work with here so don’t expect much – maybe a half inch, an inch if we are lucky.

Tonight, skies will clear after dark and we will dry out. Overnight lows will drop to the teens.
