More clouds Wednesday but temperatures remain unseasonably warm. Not much of a change in the pleasant weather we have been enjoying. Temperatures will continue to be well above normal today but we will have some cloud cover for at least the first part of the day. We start out the day with mostly to partly sunny skies courtesy of a wave cloud. That should break down by late morning giving us clearer skies above. Conditions will remain calm and dry. High temperatures today will top out in the mid-70s. Tonight, mostly clear skies will be above and lows should drop to the low to mid-40s. Latest: http://www.thorntonweather.com/

Clear skies, calm conditions and lots of sun for #Thornton’s Tuesday. Days like we are experiencing this week are what we should have been seeing back in September when it was so cold and wet. Well, no matter when they arrive, they are welcome for sure. We start out the day with clear skies and should be sunny throughout the day today other than a few high clouds here and there. We start out with a bit of a chill in the air but then will warm nicely with highs pushing close to the 80 degree mark. Winds will be light and out of the south, conditions dry. Tonight skies will remain mostly clear with lows around 43 degrees. Enjoy the mild #weather and head over to http://www.thorntonweather.com for the latest.

#Thornton’s workweek starts off with sun, mild temps. We are looking to have a string of days with fantastic #weather. A high pressure ridge has built up and that will bring us unseasonably warm temperatures lasting through the workweek. For today, sunny skies start us off and there may be a cloud here and there through the day but nothing that will block the light for any amount of time. Conditions will be calm and dry. Temperatures will be topping out in the mid-70s, about 10 degrees above normal for the date. Tonight skies remain clear with lows dipping to the low 40s. As for the rest of the week, look for similar conditions to last through Friday. On Saturday the ridge breaks down and a trough moves through leading to cooler temps and perhaps a chance for rain.

Lots of sun, cool temperatures for #Thornton’s Sunday. A pretty nice looking day ahead for us with lots of sun and calm #weather conditions. Temperatures are going to be on the cool side but still should be relatively comfortable. Sunny skies start things off and will continue throughout the day with nary a cloud to be seen throughout the day. Winds will be light, conditions calm and dry. Highs will be in the low to mid-60s, not too far below normal for the date. Tonight, skies remain clear and overnight lows will be in the mid-30s. Looking at the workweek ahead, it appears to be a very nice one thanks to a high pressure ridge that is going to be in place. That will lead to dry conditions, lots of sun and temperatures above normal. Check out the extended #forecast for more details: http://www.thorntonweather.com/forecast.php

Plenty of sun Saturday but also a healthy dose of wind. The day might not look too bad given the forecast temperatures and the face we will have sunny skies. However, we also are going to see windy conditions that will limit the enjoyment. Sunny skies start things off and while there will be a few clouds here and there, expect plenty of blue sky above throughout the day. Temperatures will be cooler than normal with highs topping out in the upper 50s. A trough will be digging in later this morning and that is going to be the cause of windy conditions that will dominate things. By mid-morning you should notice the winds and mid-day will see them peak before they gradually ease through the evening. Tonight clear skies will help lead to cold temperatures with lows near freezing. Keep an eye on the wind speeds here: http://www.thorntonweather.com/live-weather-2.php

#Thornton’s Friday and weekend #weather to feature cool temps, dry conditions. With the passage of the cold front yesterday evening, we will see things cool down for a few days. However, we will remain dry and still see a healthy big of sun for the weekend. For Friday the 13th, sunny to mostly sunny skies will be the rule throughout the day. Overall conditions will be calm and dry with temperatures heading toward a high approaching the mid-60s. Tonight, mostly clear skies will be above with overnight lows right around 40 degrees. Saturday will see trough dig in mixing things up a bit with cooler temperatures and some wind. We will start out sunny early then see a bit of an increase in cloud cover. Winds will initially be light but then in the afternoon and evening pick up the pace with gusts over 30mph being possible. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s. Saturday night into Sunday morning will be mostly clear and also quite chilly with lows near, perhaps below, the freezing mark. We close out the weekend on Sunday with lots of sun and no cloud cover expected. Highs will be in the low 60s. For the evening when the Broncos play the Giants, look for it to be cool but calm and dry. Have a great weekend and of course keep an eye on http://www.thorntonweather.com/ for all the latest.

Lots of sun, warmer temperatures for Thornton’s Tuesday. The storm system that brought our first snow of the season has moved out. In its wake we start out cold but then will see a nice little warmup although temps will still be below normal. We start out the day with sunny skies and can expect largely cloudless skies above throughout the day. Early morning temperatures below freezing will warm with the rising sun and head toward a high in the mid-50s. That’s a 20 degree improvement over yesterday but well below the average for the date of 68 degrees. Otherwise, conditions will be calm and dry. Tonight mostly clear skies will be above and lows in the mid-30s. All the latest: http://www.thorntonweather.com

Cold and wet Monday as Thornton gets its first wintry blast of the season. From sun and warmth the past two days to cold and snow today. The changeover to snow occurred later than expected and thus totals will not quite be what was expected but we will be very wet and quite cold. As of this writing nearly a half inch of liquid precipitation has been received since the storm arrived yesterday evening, most of which fell as rain. Early this morning it has transitioned to snow and we are seeing some light, slushy accumulations. Roads are extraordinarily wet with all the water and some spots may become slick with the cold temperatures. Look for the snow, with some rain at times, to continue through the morning hours before tapering off after noon. We could still see total accumulations of a couple of inches, primarily on grassy areas. Temperatures will only reach highs in the mid-30s. A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 3:00pm although it will likely be dropped before that time. Skies will begin clearing by the late afternoon / evening and by midnight be mostly clear. Lows tonight will be right near the freezing mark. A Freeze Warning remains in effect until 10:00am tomorrow. Get all the latest: http://www.thorntonweather.com
