What a gorgeous day, eh? Look for mild conditions this week for the most part, various chances for showers / thunderstorms. We spotted this red-tailed #hawk on a light post off of Washington around noon today. Unfortunately he didn't sit still long. Check out +Tony's Takes Photography for some photos of local #owls we took today as well.

Seasonal temperatures, sunny skies for Thornton’s Thursday.  The #weather today will bring very typical, pleasant spring conditions to #Thornton.  Following a chilly start with temperatures in the 30s we will warm up nicely and head for a high right around the average for today’s date of 62 degrees.  Mostly sunny skies will be above throughout and winds will be light.  Nothing to complain about! See the image for today’s planning forecast and head over to www.thorntonweather.com for more.

Tuesday brings relatively seasonal #weather to #Thornton.  The chill will be disappearing this morning as we see warming temperatures today.  Highs will be a couple of degrees above normal.  Mostly sunny skies will start things off with some increased cloud cover possible later courtesy of a developing wave cloud.  Winds will be a bit breezy later.  See the image for today's outlook and of course visit http://www.thorntonweather.com/ for all the latest.

Video: Spring snowstorm finally generates some intensity in #Thornton. It was sure slow coming with most of the day featuring a light rain / snow mix.  At about 4:00pm the snow finally began in earnest.  The video below was taken from the ThorntonWeather.com backyard.

Winter Weather Advisory issued for ‪#‎Thornton‬. The National Weather Service has downgraded the Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Weather Advisory. The advisory is in effect from 6:00am Sunday to midnight Sunday. Slightly warmer temperatures and an expected slower development of snow are the reasons for the chance. The advisory warns of 4 to 7 inches for the Denver area and we would expect Thornton to be at the lower end of that range. Much is going to depend on the timing of the transition from rain to snow. Further, with the ground being warm from the recent mild days, much may melt as it lands.

#Thornton’s Friday, weekend to feature mild temps, slight chances for storms.  We will be heading into the weekend with unseasonably warm temperatures Friday.  Saturday and Sunday will be cooler but still warmer than normal and could bring our first thunderstorms of the season.  For today look for calm conditions, mostly sunny skies, and high temperatures in the upper 70s and pushing the 80 degree mark.  Clouds will be increasing tonight and linger through much of the day Saturday.  The afternoon and evening tomorrow introduce a slight chance for thunderstorms and showers across the area.  Best chances will be in the southern foothills and Palmer Divide area.  A few rain showers will be possible early Sunday then the middle of the day will be dry followed by another slight chance for showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.  High temperatures will approach 70 degrees.  See the image for your weekend #weather outlook and keep an eye on our website for the latest: http://www.thorntonweather.com

Mother Nature brings back cool, unsettled weather for Wednesday.  Yesterday’s warm up was nice but it was also short-lived.  A cold front pushed through this morning that is going to bring cooler than normal temperatures and just a slight chance for precipitation today.  Gusty winds have already developed and will continue through much of the day.  Some clear spots in the clouds will be seen during the morning before coverage increases this afternoon.  Highs will be topping out in the mid-50s.  This afternoon brings a slight chance for light, scattered rain showers with a bit better chance during the evening.  See the image for today’s #Thornton #weather planner and visit http://www.thorntonweather.com for more.

Anyone going to get themselves out of bed tonight to view the lunar eclipse?  We're undecided at this point but probably will. The skies will be clear but temperatures quite chilly.  Complete details about the event can be found at the link.

Snow ends, sunny skies return to #Thornton Monday but cold remains.  The storm system that made Sunday a bit dreary and brought a dose of snow has moved to the east.  While skies will be clearing, the effects of the system will still be felt in the form of colder than normal temperatures.  There may be a few flurries early but those should be ending soon after the sun comes up.  With dawn we will already be seeing mostly clear skies and by this afternoon sunny skies will be above.  Temperatures are going to be about 20 degrees below normal today though with highs only in the low to mid-40s.  See the image for today’s outlook and visit http://www.thorntonweather.com for all the latest.

A cold, wet Sunday ahead for #Thornton. Thus far we have only seen light rain but a changeover to snow is expected to occur by about mid-morning.  Temperatures will only be going down today as our high temperature likely was reached already.  How much snow?  That is a tough call.  Thornton could certainly see from 3 to 6 inches, perhaps even more.  Much is going to depend on the timing of the changeover to snow.  Also a big factor will the warm ground which is going to melt a good bit of the snow as it hits and melt accumulating snow from underneath quickly.  A Winter #Weather Advisory remains in effect until midnight tonight.  See the image for today’s hour-by-hour planner and use our Winter Weather Briefing Page as your one-stop-shop for all the latest: http://www.thorntonweather.com/winter-briefing.php
