very quiet at this point. we have a system coming in from the west that will be moving in through the weekend. high pressure will be in control for today and tomorrow keeping us sunny and warm with highs in the 50s. then it changes as that high moves out of the way, allows that moisture to come in for the weekend. so you'll start to see the moisture showing up in the afternoon and evening for our broncos' game day. highs in the northies. it-- 40s. it will be partly cloudy through the beginning of the name, then we'll see slight sprinkles, few flurries. light amounts expected here as we go through the weekend for snowfall. futurecast product into tomorrow night keeps it pretty quiet. here comes the moisture from the west by 1:00 on sunday afternoon. by 5:00, mix of rain and snowfall throughout the urban corridor and eastern plains. be prepared for that. looks like we'll continue to see that early monday morning as well. highs expected today in the 50s from denver all the way to pueblo, limon.

bus stop planner, 20s this morning, 50s later today with plenty of sunshine. we will talk about our game day snow forecast coming up in a few minutes. >> unfortunately, we have big problems on the roadways. big traffic delays the north side of town. you can see there's a huge hole here by denver health medical center over there. this is 8th avenue at delaware. daryl orr is there on scene talking to the guys. what have you learned so far this morning? >> reporter: so far what we've learned is there's a big hole in the ground due to the water main break here at 8th and delaware. crews are saying they'll be out here for eight to 10 hours to repair this. apparently this water main break is not affecting any of the residences because they've rerouted the water so people can get water. but they're being cautious. been digging about three hours.
main that's running right through the center of this giant hole which is probably about 15 feet by 10 feet wide, about 15 feet deep. little extra caution and that's why they're saying it will take eight to 10 hours. traffic one lane headed westbound. quite a bit of cars traveling here. you wouldn't realize this is a heavily traveled road, but it sure is. with one lane open it will take some time. >> will get worse even this afternoon as more and more folks will be using that going from speer to calumet. southbound side of i-25, cdot camera, traffic is stacked up, now they're moving around. back to the travel time. looks like they've moved that ramp that comes from 84th avenue to southbound i-25 and shortened it over half an hour getting into downtown denver. thank you, jayson. 6:35now. we are celebrating the broncos chase for the championship. bowl l.
the broncos have to defeat the patriots. denver7 reporter lindsay watts is outside at the denver 7 tailgate with those die hard fans and she made her way on the crazy bus. how is it going out there? >> reporter: it's a party. we have the music going, dancing a little bit. we're giving you a look on the broncos' bus with these super fans. it's matthew that owns this bus. you were telling me, started out as a man cave inside your home. all your broncos gear. your wife got tired of that so what happened next? >> made me build a rolling man cave. >> i like it. >> big tailgating machine. it. get ready for broncos. >> you said it's still a work in progress. you're still adding things. anything that you're really wanting to get to really top it off in here? >> super bowl l sticker, championship for the broncos.

they don't want to have a repeat of that sunday. >> the wide receivers coach is pulling out all the stops, making the receivers do the daunt let drill. they have to -- gauntlet drill. they have to run down the field catching passes thrown rapid fire. >> sports director lionel bienvenu joins us with the keys for the broncos to pull off a victory. >> broncos country, orange friday. let's talk about this matchup again. manning versus brady xvii. enjoy it, savor it. no matter what the outcome, we'll be witnessing nfl history. these two future hall of famers probably playing against each other for the last time ever. this season we got crazy numbers. peyton threw one touchdown pass in six starts at mile high. brady threw three touchdown passes in one start at mile high. brady has more td passes than peyton does in denver this
the broncos have to get to brady to have a chance. the problem is, he got rid of the ball in 1.9 seconds against the chiefs. he doesn't even need an offensive line. von miller said, i just need one second to get to him. demarcus ware said nobody will get to him if he gets rid of the ball in 1.9 seconds. they got to get in his face. they got to disrupt tom, if not sack him. in the pass coverage they have to be almost perfect. if that happens, broncos country, we're going to head to super bowl l. >> this is joseph peters, one of our producers, a patriots fan. he dared come to work like this. we've been comparing mean tweets. >> this is the first one, peyton manning, looks like he usually does in the playoffs. the feeling you get when you realize your career is over after sunday. >> that's just mean. >> that is mean. >> how about this?
how do you win a super bowl without cheating? i don't know, son, we are patriots fan. that's below the belt. >> four championships is four championships, right? >> do you have four? do they all count? >> one of them has an asterisk, allegedly. picture of brady and belichick. peyton manning retirement party, sunday january 24th, this sunday, sports authority field right here in denver. >> oh, man. % we have another meme. what's the best part about dating a patriots fan? they don't care if you cheat. >> oh, snap! >> cheating theme going on. >> oh, snap. >> bridesmaids dress, denver broncos when it comes to super bowl wins, always a bridesmaid, never a bride. >> what? >> what? >> not since the '90s at least, right?

haven't heard as declared by denver mayor michael hancock. live look at larimer square fancyed up this morning. wear that broncos gear to show your team support. guys. >> that place is going to be filled up later today. rally noon to 1:30. we'll stream it live on thedenverchannel.com. we'll be out there as well. you can watch it from the though it will be a beautiful day today, stacey. >> absolutely gorgeous for the rally today, and anything else you plan on doing. have the lights blazing at the stadium, getting ready to roll. 25 degrees the current temperature outside. our windchill factor ooly 17. you will feel it right when you walk out the door this morning. current temperatures mostly in the 20s here around denver. across the eastern plains it's a little cooler and of course in the higher elevations we morning. our highs are expected to be in the mid-50s today. the sunshine is really going to help out. if you're headed to larimer square, temperatures around 50
of sun. 54 our expected afternoon high today. we'll talk about our chances for snow which is showing up on broncos sunday and that will be an interesting little twist here, even as we have the game going on. we'll talk about that coming up in just a few. >> this is the problem to the north side of town. airtracker 7 is looking at this, ramp from 84th avenue to southbound i-25. look at this new temporary barrier blocking off that right lane. that's usually a lane that could take you from 84th avenue down to highway 36. it is closed. you can see that barrier. three lanes are open. with the elimination of the extra lane, look at the map and how badly traffic is backed up this morning. all the way back up to before 120th avenue. it is well over half an hour on that southbound trip. extra time needed and you're not going to save time if you jump from 84th heading south on i-25 into downtown. that is the worse traffic jam so far. another trouble spot coming up
that's one of our producers. look at her going. she's got this figured out. we may never get her back. >> she's on the broncos bus. it's over now. >> the super fans joining us this morning. folks, it's not exactly warm out there. >> it's why she's dancing to stay warm. don't you love her dance moves? >> very good. >> looks kind of like an end zone victory dance. it is chilly for sure. we have temperatures in the 20s. but it feels like the teens. we're finally seeing a little sunshine there lighting up the mountains behind the stadium this morning. 25 as i mentioned outside. our humidity level at 62%. 3 our windchill factor feels like it's 17 degrees in denver. normally we should be around 44 degrees for a high today. i think we'll be about 10 degrees above that with highs in the mid-50s and lots of sunshine. our low last night, 21 degrees. our normal low is 17. at this point, temperatures in
we have some single digits and teens across the eastern plains. of course, single digits up through the higher elevations from steamboat to craig to eagle and aspen. around alamosa, 7 below now. little chilly there. 30s from littleton to conifer to highlands ranch. current windchill factor still in the teens. it feels cold here around denver and aurora. 12 for greeley. 15-degree windchill for fort morgan and fort collins. 7fraysure and 9 dillon. we'll have a lot of sunshine state-wide today. that will change as we go into the weekend. we have a chance for snow. big high pressure in control for today and tomorrow. highs warming in the 50s. nice and warm during the day. above normal thanks to this high. we have another system coming in from the west and that's going to bring a chance for snow coming in on sunday. it's actually going to start as
changing over to snowfall. watch for that as you're out and about for the game into sunday because this moisture is going to come in pretty quickly into the afternoon and evening. our futurecast showing this moisture here by 10:30 sunday morning in the mountains and by the time we get to 4:00 we'll have a mix of rain and snow along the urban corridor, that does include denver and will shift off to the ast. may get wrap around into early monday as well. snowfall even into the overnight hours. broncos planner, partly to mostly cloudy skies to start the game. as we go through it we'll have a chance for rain changing to a chance for snow in the evening hours. i wanted to show you a closeup on the futurecast here because as we go into unday here comes that moisture from the west. this will be by 1:00. by 5:00 you can see how much coverage with this moisture. highs in the 50s today.
54 in denver and tonight 28 overnight low. tomorrow still beautiful, 56 degrees during the day. doesn't change until sunday, in time for the game. 45 degrees our afternoon high. flurries and sprinkles afternoon changing to snowfall overnight. monday. 40s next week. >> exactly. people will want to do skiing. unfortunately we have problems including that big sink hole. >> broncos! >> good grief. [ breathing like darth vader ] >> this is really funny. do you like my tie? >> i saw that. it's good. >> huge, isn't it? >> that's a lot of orange. >> that's a lot of orange, honestly. that's a little bit ridiculous. here's the hole westbound 8th
