tough, but hopefully this evening things are a little smoother for your friday night. overlooking downtown denver, we have mostly cloudy skies out there, after picking up several inches in the 9news backyard. around the front range, close to 2 to 6 inches, everywhere in between. we hit 29 degrees at the airport today, but that came at midnight and we've been staying steady in the low 20s ever since. right now at the airport, we're at 20 degrees. couple of light flurries still coming down and humidity at 85%. we still have a ton of moisture out there in the atmosphere. our storm system is still sitting just into parts of new mexico and texas, but on the back side of it, this counterclockwise flow is ushering that snow straight into southeastern colorado. that's why they are seeing the heavier bands and have a good shot of seeing more move in later on tonight. around here, what you see is what you get. couple of light flurries around up to the mountains. a little light snowfall coming down, but we aren't going to see too much more accumulation
again, heavier bands, i-25 south from pueblo to trinidad, la hundred today, kim, also looking at a little snowfall, too. our storm system pushes to the east by morning, but the stationary front is going to back up around the front range and that's going to keep the frigid temperatures around for saturday and sunday. the rest of this evening, everything starts to wind down. 11:00, snow finishes in southeastern colorado. by morning, we wake up to patchy fog. i don't think it's going to last forever. maybe by afternoon we might have some clearing, but mostly cloudy skies. by 1:00, 2:00, a little light snowfall popping up around the northern and central mountains, just because we still have the moisture out there and so with the mountains, i think we could pick up just a little bit more. down across southern colorado, we still are looking at the winter storm warning. about 6 to 10 inches for the sangre de cristos. as far as temperatures tonight, they are going low. look at that, 6 in greeley. 1 in sterling.
in the highcountry. tonight, 8 degrees. snow winding down. but look at the bitter cold arctic air blasting in from canada. daytime highs tomorrow in bismarck, 1 below. 6 degrees in minneapolis, making our 25 not look that bad. in the 20s along the eastern plains. 27 in blackhawk, 23 in brighton, 25 in fort collins with low 20s across most of northern colorado. we'll pop to the 30s on sunday, a little more sunshine. 40s arrive midweek, but then another storm system will be on the horizon for next weekend. . so now that we know who the quarterback is, it's time to focus on the broncos' next the best part about being the best team is you get to face the lowest seed, which is not necessarily the worst team. the steelers are number 6. so if they beat the bengals, that's who the broncos get.

>> we have cloudy skies sitting over the area and looks like we're going to be dealing with temperatures probably warming up just a bit as we head toward the middle of next week. i'll show you just another glimpse at the snow reports we have, anywhere between 2 to 6 inches, so up and down the i-25 corridor. lot of folks saw a good amount, just enough to hopefully melt things off by middle of next week. we'll see what we can do. >> danielle's got your back, michelle. >> good job covering for her. i like that very much.
