Time lapse video: Thornton’s March 23, 2016 blizzard

To say the storm that pounded the Colorado Front Range was a big one does not do it justice.  In less than 24 hours Thornton would see blizzard conditions and our second heaviest snowfall of the previous 10 years.

Light rain began in the early morning hours but that soon transitioned to snow.  The white stuff would continue to fall into the evening.  Strong winds helped whip the snow and create blizzard conditions grinding the Colorado Front Range to a halt.

Thornton would tally 20.1 inches of snow, one of the heftier totals from the area.

The video below begins at midnight and runs through 7:00pm.
