good morning. it's a jackknifed semi on founders parkway is one of the trouble spot this is morning in the metro area and all along the front range. you will want to get out the door early to navigate the snowy and icy wet roads. we have teams spread out across the metro area to help get you ready for the morning. crashes across the metro area. tarhonda thomas is out checking spots that are causing problems. we're also finding roadways a
6:01 am
so you will want to take things slow. colleen ferreira has a look at conditions east of the metro area right now. >> we'll show you how you're helping us tell the story about the storm today. good morning, everyone. the team is in the backyard. it is snowing. the flakes are big. it's definitely picked up over the last few minutes or so. we do want to let you know that elbert county school district is on a two-hour delay. it's the only one we've heard far. >> amelia is going to walk us through the commute. we'll start with becky. >> it's picked up. >> by 9:00 it looks like it significantly diminishes, but we have this morning drive to get through. >> and you can see the flakes have definitely gotten bigger in the 9 backyard, right? this is going to continue now for a little bit. it's hard to see downtown denver. still a clear view of the highway.
6:02 am
the band that's swishing through also extends out to the west side of town where heavy snow is hitting the area. this is what it looks like at dia. you can see a little clearer view. we've got snow reports coming in. we'll be going over those in just a few minutes. as for the actual snow, there's the band moving around the city. it's close to aurora. all the way down south, as far south as highlands ranch and as far west as golden. we then get a little bit of a break on the north side of the city through places like westminster, but it does pick back up right around longmont. visibility is going to be lower in the places where we had some of the heavier snow. be prepared as you are headed out and about. it significantly diminishes with a chance of flurries this afternoon and partial clearing by tonight. when it's all said and done, we have another 2-4 inches to go
6:03 am
we'll talk more about that and the snow totals coming up in just a few minutes. tarhonda thomas has been out morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: and the road are. as we drove through downtown, roads. right around here, i-25 and lincoln, this is where the interstate starts to get snow packed and the cars start slowing down. i just tweeted video of us navigating through the lanes. i want to show you video too of i-25 just north of founders parkway. this is a jackknifed semi truck that's been there for quite a while. you can see the truck just hit the left sidebar roadway cade and now colorado state patrol says it's leaking fuel. there's no safe spot for us to do it. we couldn't show you the video. you can see what's blocking
6:04 am
we did see another truck from the same beverage company. it looks like it's unloading the the crashed truck so they can clear it out. as far as how long it can take, we don't know yet. if you're headed in that direction, it's going to slow you down. let's get on the neighborhood streets. just to let you know, that's where i saw the most ice and is slick conditions. some of the ice from the storm a couple weeks ago never really melted because it's been so cold. now there's a layer of snow over it. to help you navigate, let's talk to amelia earhart. >> good morning. that's so right. the leftover ice pack can be deceiving on the side streets. keep that in mind. also, keep in mind the 25 and parkers accident, the jackknifed truck still causing delays. from the springs or castle rock into the denver tech center or downtown, you will need extra time. the curiosity slowdown will be a major factor. just the icy and slick
6:05 am
up to a tough commute. it's one of the busiest drives. 37 miles per hour, the average. southbound i-70 down to 25. an 18-minute commute. across the board, the slew of accidents is rolling in quickly. i-70 crash out to west side of town at 34th avenue just took place. that will cause slowdowns around the curve in both directions. another crash westbound 70 near peoria. in my next update, we'll detail the rest of the crashes south of i-70. first, we want to head out to our reporter colleen ferreira now. >> good morning, amelia. 70. i think what you just talked about, we might be seeing some of the affect of that. we have been going westbound for a little bit. we're just starting to slow down a little. i don't see anything just yet, but i do see a lot of brake lights nearing me and off into the distance. speeds are dramatically taking a dip, almost to 30 miles per hour. the roads here are not bad.
6:06 am
a little bit of snow and slush. very little bit and a little bit of snow falling too, but they don't feel icy. that was the problem on i-70 when we were headed the other direction. same thing, the roads felt great. i-70 seems to be okay right now. we're picking up speed again. i do see brake lights in the distance. i will tweet whatever i can see, if i can grab a picture of it safely, i will do that. we've been everywhere this morning. i-25 as you go north, that gets really bad, really snow packed and icy. longmont, boulder, if you're waking up, it's bad out there. leave yourself plenty of time. the intersections can be slipping and sliding today. >> that's for sure. >> thank you much. it has been kind of a crazy storm because it's snowing really hard in the 90s backyard right now. over where colleen is, not so much. there's pockets of snow. >> pockets. i noticed it when i was driving
6:07 am
a lot of people from the north and the west. we can't have any and all of a sudden you went outside and brought it with you. >> people are showings. >> people are showing us. i want to start with what we saw last night. a light snow at the university of denver campus. that was last night. you can see when the snow started falling in that area. this one is my favorite this morning. this is my snow angel. i tried to get greg moss to do the snow angel. he was not having that. we're hoping people will start sending in photos. even what we saw earlier with tarhonda, this is i15 southbound north of founders parkway. there may not be a lot of snow on the parkways, but even if you get a little bit, it's pretty deceiving as you're driving out there this morning. this is from steve. he says it's looking good in longmont. what does he say right there? >> that's a turkey fryer.
6:08 am
we would love to hear from all the folks at home as well. send us your photos. i love the snow angels. >> all right. use the hashtag 9wx, and you will help us cover the storm. cheryl? glass shattered at another englewood business overnight. this time the snow helped police catch the suspect. englewood police tracked the suspected burglar's footprints in the snow, and then they found him and arrested him. they say the suspect broke into the panda one restaurant. he's wanted for another smash and grab earlier in the night along hampden. now, this arrest could be a very big break in the case. police are now working to find out if this suspect is connected to more than 40 smash and grabs throughout the metro area. >> a deputy accused of killing
6:09 am
cell unit until his trial. authorities say he shot his wife, fawn, in the neck in the couple's home. several children were inside of the house at the time of the shooting. he's claiming he shot his wife in self-defense after she pulled a pistol on him. kansas city firefighters worked fast this morning to fight this apartment fire, but it was really burning. as you can see. the nbc station in kansas city reporting that at least one resident jumped out of a window to escape the flames. was taken to the hospital. firefighters are staying clear of the side of the building because they say it could collapse. part of the roof has already collapsed. they have evacuated nearby buildings for safety. no word on what started all of this. right now the building continues to smolder, and some flames linger inside. these pictures were from about an hour and a half ago. >> wall street hoping for evidence that shows the u.s.
6:10 am
financial market chaos that we're seeing right now. that's why today's december report in the 4th quarter 2015 critical. our retirement funds, market watchers are looking for about last month. we'll bring you those numbers just after they're released at 6:30. the airline is being called out for not giving passengers with disabilities prompt services. damaging and delaying the return of wheelchairs. united is also being fined for five lengthy tarmac delays. united management says it does remain committed to meeting all transportation department rules. frontier airlines is going to added 42 new routes to its system. that will start in april. none will involve travel to dia. frontier is still cutting back its presence at down, cutting
6:11 am
in half of. we're watching more snow continue across the front range. likely to about 9, 9:30. that's when it will start to significantly diminish. in the meantime, snow reports coming in from elizabeth. dia reporting 2.6 inches of snow. up around lafayette, a little bit less. 1.8 inches. fort collins reporting 2.5 inches of snow on the ground. there's some of the heavy bands we have right from denver into the south and southwest side of the city. we've got another heavy band that's set up north for longmont stretching out there are brighton. so it's definitely spotty out there. guys, it continues until about 9:30 before it significantly lets up. >> thank you. the roads are slick. the going is slow in some spots. after the break, we're going to get you set for the commute
6:12 am
the snow has picked up around downtown denver, specifically outside the studios here. you can see it's having an impact on the roads, starting to coax them a little more as the heavy snow moves through. we're going to show you the radar in a moment. the other side of the system is the cold. we started off in the upper 20s and low 30s this morning. we have dropped since into the lower to middle 20'd. here around the metro area stretching up through fort collins. this is where we now stay through the remainder of the day. winter weather advisories remain in place through this afternoon. there's the heavy band basically circling arvada, goes out to golden. circles lakewood down to littleton, close to aurora. we get a bit of a break around
6:13 am
parts of westminster. it picks back up again with a band from longmont all the way down into brighton. of course this is all from the system moving in from the southwest. it's settled just south of colorado and will continue to very quickly push to the east. so the snow -- the worst of it takes us to about 9:00, 9:30. there you can see it disappears after 9:00. by 3:00 we'll have mostly cloudy skies. the heaviest snow by far will be in southeast colorado near springfield and trinidad. 9:30 tonight, still a lot of clouds, perhaps flurries in the area. overnight we get the partial clearing, and we stay cold. 24 degrees will be daytime pictures. 22 in greeley. 20s and 30s in the eastern plains. we've got another 2-4-inches of snow to go before this thing wraps up. then tonight, still in the 20s tomorrow.
6:14 am
with a high of 33. we're actually close to 50 by wednesday of next week. considering the snow has picked up, amelia, i guess it made the roads rough too. absolutely. we're looking forward to the warmer temps. in the meantime, you have to gear up for today's drive. if you're looking out the window, yes, the snow is falling. here's the silver lining. we have wet roads but not a lot of snow pack if you're commuting to the tech center. up to the north, south, and the west where we have seen more snow this morning. 25 travel times coming in from thornton. southbounders on 25 are at 40 miles per hour from e470 to u.s. 36. a 16-minute ride. metro wide, here's crashes we promised to tell you about. this wreck near washington causing significant delays just to the east of the mouse trap and we've got this next one out to the west, westbound across i- 70 near 44th avenue.
6:15 am
>> i think there's a white snow blanket behind her. 6:16 now. this morning snow is hitting just in time to slow down your morning drive and make the roads pretty dangerous for a lot of people. we wanted to check in with cdot. bob, a little ice and snow out there can cause all kinds of havoc in the morning. >> oh, yeah. i mean, you get the ice, you get the snow, and then you get the additional traffic, throw in a couple of accidents, and it's going to be a slow go in a lot of areas, probably most this morning. >> you know, bob, when we were driving in, a lot of the roads were just wet. now that it's been coming down and it's 25 degrees, it's going to be icing over. seeing more ice now. >> it is. we're going to start seeing more ice on the roadways. it will help that we have a little more traffic. with more traffic comes more slowdowns. so it's one of those things where we're going to -- it's going to be a slow go and people need to give themselves
6:16 am
>> what's the situation up in the high country right now. traction laws are in effect just west of town in i-70. mt. vernon canon and 285 also from morrison road to pine junction. there's a traction law in effect. it has been lifted at the tunnel. it has gotten better there. vail pass still has the traction law in effect. still seeing driving conditions west of town. >> bob wilson, thank you much. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> it is 6:18 now. last night the president held a town hall meeting on gun control. hours before that, he was

6:18 am
texas governor greg abbott says this is precisely why i called refugees. >> president obama will not vote for any candidate, even a democrat, who does not support reform. the president made the proclamation to the new york times website. it was published just before he took part in a town hall meeting on gun violence. the president says despite all the rhetoric, 90% of americans support reform. if they join him, the u.s. will elect leadership that we deserve. all right. girls matter. that's what a little girl told the toy maker hasbro. first, we want to check the weather and traffic once again. >> good morning. a lot of people still seeing heavy snow out there. that certainly has moved right back into the denver metro area.

6:25 am
then a third push of cold air comes in tomorrow. it may bring flurries for us tomorrow morning, but most of the snow should be done. outside it's been impressive, as far as the pictures go. this is fort collins. you can see the snow coming down. we have two and a half inches reported there. that's officially into the national weather service. that's included in some of the snow reports popping up on your screen. the heavy bands of snow, they're encompassing denver. they stretch nearly to aurora. down south to highlands ranch. west almost out to golden, and they just barely try and move up there westminster. another band is just north of that area stretching from longmont into brighton. these bands of snow bringing in fairly decent snow amounts and low visibility. that's something you will have to watch out for as you're out and about. visibility is 1-2 miles out across the front range. now, the worst of this system
6:26 am
9:00 and 10:00 this morning. we'll be under cloudy skies. partial clearing is in store for us as we head into tonight. we still have to get through a lot of this morning. some of the worst spots have been on the south end of town. that's where tarhonda thomas has been all morning long. good morning, tarhonda. >> reporter: good morning. you know, the thing is we're not seeing a huge downpour of these big, fat, massive flakes. i've been smacked in the face by bigger flakes in my day. trust me. we're on lincoln. the south side of town is worse than that metro area downtown commute. we're seeing more snow accumulation on the interstate here. take a look at video we saw a little while ago of i-25 north of founders parkway. this is a semi that has jackknifed. it's in the left lane, crashing into that barricade. colorado state patrol says several vehicles were involved in this. a couple of them stayed on the scene. it looks like they have this accident cleaned up.
6:27 am
that direction, just to be sure. we couldn't bring you a live shot from there because it's too dangerous. colorado patrol says they're working multiple accidents between lone street, founders, and that castle rock area. a lot of people are driving just too fast for the conditions. it's a good lesson for all of us. we've all had experiences driving in the snow. we all think we're experts, but any one of us are susceptible to a crash on roadways like today. >> good morning, tarhonda. that i-25 on the south side had been pretty treacherous. jackknifed semi truck is now cleared from i-25 at founders parkway. cdot just took it down from their travel alert section. we can confirm all lanes are open. what lanes are not hope? several across the area freeways. 225, we have a new southbound delay at dayton. a crash approaching the interchange has caused this backup. alternate routes are not going
6:28 am
streets are packed more than the area freeways. i-70 in the westbound direction, we have had ongoing backups near ward road. the left lane is now blocked. that's going to be out to west side. as we focus here on the 225 interchange, right in the dtc, we have the southbound crash and then southbound i-25, a new crash is just coming in on the approach to 225. now we're going to head out to the newsroom and check in with corey. >> we've been following all the pictures you've been sending us this morning. we get to see what's happening >> it's great. we're getting a lot of pictures. we'll get there. here's what i really like. that just came down. that was the team in the backyard. there's a new one. this one just came in from deer trail. eastern arapaho county. there's a pond in my front yard. you can see it's completely covered around. snow there. everyone, this is your favorite. >> it is my favorite.

6:30 am
panda one restaurant to the suspect's home. it was busted into. a second place was also hit on east hampton avenue. the suspect is linked to two overnight. those two overnight burglaries, but right now investigators are trying to find out if this crime is also linked to a string of recent smash and grabs in denver, sheridan, wheatridge, and englewood. we learned that a denver man is going to serve life in prison without the possibility of parole for a sword attack. he planned to rob a friend when he lured him to a remote part of summit county. this happened in june of 2014. he then attacked that friend. the teenager survived, waved down a sheriff's deputy, and was able to get help. >> 6:36. we've got breaking business news to tell you about. the december jobs report was just released by the feds. the numbers are much stronger than expected. employers adding 292,000 positions in the month of december.
