A wintry mix start Thornton’s weekend but the period will end mild and with sun

Springtime in Colorado can bring a wide variety of conditions over a short period and that will be the case this weekend. We start off with a chill and some snow but in the end, spring returns.

For today, a rain / snow mix starts us off with some minor accumulations. We then get a break for the latter part of the morning followed by some sprinkles of rain in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid-40s. Tonight, a reinforcing front moves in and with it we will see some accumulating snowfall. Starting around 6:00pm, we expect snow to develop and Thornton could see 1 to 3 inches overnight. Lows will be a bit below freezing.

Saturday, a few snow showers may linger through the morning giving some minimal, additional accumulations. That will be followed by some rain in the afternoon. It will remain chilly with mostly cloudy to cloudy skies above. Saturday night, the cloud cover will slowly ease. Lows will be in the low to mid-30s.

Sunday we expect a quick, nice rebound. Mostly sunny skies will be above with highs in the mid-60s. Mid to late afternoon will bring some breezy winds.

A quick return to colder weather today. We will see mercury readings well below normal and throw in a mix of raindrops and snowflakes.

Cloudy skies will be above throughout the day with only a bit of a chance to see a break in the cover late today. A rain / snow mix will be possible this morning although whatever form the precipitation takes is not expected to amount to much. This afternoon, any precipitation will be all rain.

Tonight skies will be mostly cloudy to cloudy. Some sprinkles of rain will continue to be possible. Overnight lows will dip to around the freezing mark.

Wednesday sees warm temperatures but with cloud cover and breezy winds

We get one more mild day before a series of systems cools us down starting tomorrow. Today we will again enjoy above normal temperatures but with some clouds and wind.

Partly sunny skies start us off and will remain throughout the day. Conditions will be dry during the daytime with some breezy winds in the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will top out right near the 70 degree mark.

A cold front will push through this evening and temperatures will drop quickly. With it, we could see some light rain overnight, perhaps with a few flakes of snow in the early morning hours tomorrow. Low temperatures will be dipping to the mid-30s.

After a wet start, Thornton’s Tuesday will dry out, warm up and be windy.

Some nice, much-needed showers to start the day today. The rain won’t be lasting long though and in its place, temperatures will still be warmer than normal and we will have some wind.

Light to moderate rain showers will be seen until about 9:00am then taper off pretty quickly. As the rain ends, cloud cover will dissipate and we will see mostly sunny skies. Northwest winds will ramp up with gusts of 30+ mph being seen throughout the rest of the day. High temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 60s.

Tonight, skies will be mostly clear initially then we see coverage increase in the early morning hours tomorrow. Lows will be in the low 40s.
