it's a young peoples field and i've been able to hang on by my fingernails. >> reporter: but whenever the lights to come down on her career -- >> there won't be another beverly newcomb-madden >> reporter: her lasting legacy will always remain up on stage . with photojournalist adam vance, jonathan gonzalez 9news. beverly has been honored with numerous awards throughout her long career. she says she's still waiting for the next phone call to direct but says she doesn't mind the time off with her husband. remarkable for 87, she's terrific. >> absolutely. danielle is going to come in with the forecast, a lot of people looking forward to the broncos and the weekend. absolutely. we do have a little bit of warm up -- a warm up and store. it will take a day or two to get back to more seasonal temperatures and tonight it is frigid.
out there too. you will see these same similar frosty images tomorrow morning as well. right now the worst of the fog is at the south threat -- south platte river valley, zero visibility, a quarter of a mile or less in fort collins. hasn't been too bad here in denver, the worst of it in parts of welland larimer counties. it's that freezing fog which looks great but it is going to provide slick surfaces by morning. we're at it four degrees in -- at four degrees in fort collins, well below zero in kremmling, walden and silverthorne. 17 at the airport, winds picking up at 10 miles per hour making it feel more like 5 degrees. the 9news backyard where it's awfully chilly , our readings here downtown about 15. early this morning it was beautiful, we had bright blue skies, lots of blinding sunshine and then by the
change. that brown cloud started to develop along the city skyline, all of the pollutants trapped at the surface and unfortunately poor air quality will be with us through tomorrow afternoon as well. we need wins to help us mix things up and that will not a resident -- arrive until air-quality expected to be unhealthy for certain groups, so if you have asthma or respiratory issues, limit your time outdoors if you can, visibility will be moderate tomorrow. right now it's been pretty quiet, really much of the west coast looking at quiet conditions, stores have been -- storms have been further out across the great lakes, the boston area, all the way up to portland maine dealing with all kinds of rain, 1" to 2" of rainfall and now coming off the great lakes into the usual spots, you see the lake effect snow and bracing for more wintry weather. around here, quiet and we like it that way at least the next couple of days.
morning a little bit of fog and we will be in full force in northern colorado but a few clouds drifting around the i-25 corridor. by 2:00 or 3:00 they break apart with sunshine in the afternoon and that will warm us up slightly. possibly isolated flurries here and there but no accumulation. high pressure is entrenched across much of the west. that stays put but look at this quick moving clipper ships right on by the trailing a cold front that will nudge into the state by tuesday. it won't bring us wet weather so to speak, but it will switch are winds up coming out of the northeast and that hopefully will -- switch our winds up coming out of the northeast. subzero once you go up in elevation, 11 degrees here in metro denver with freezing fog and places. the worst of it is up to the north, unfortunately you guys
drive to try to get out of that soup out there. 39 for the high in denver, some spots along the eastern plains more sunshine to work with and that should allow you to jump into the 40s tomorrow. we stay in the 20s and 30s for in loveland and longmont hopefully around 41. we bounce back to the 40s on tuesday right where we should be for this time of year. a warm one on wednesday and in our next storm system moves in late wednesday night ringing increasing clouds, possibly light snow on friday. i am not too impressed with this storm but it will bring us maybe an inch or two. so far next weekend looks dry
from colorado sports later, here is drew soicher . >> don't let that broncos loss in pittsburgh last month were you. it's completely irrelevant at this point. the same teams meet again in the second round of the playoffs one week from today. the steelers came from behind to beat the broncos just before christmas but that is so yesterday. >> i tell you, the speed picks up. for whatever reason. the stakes are higher and every play is so crucial. but i think the bottom line is when it's all said and done, the top teams are there and going at each other. you usually know each other pretty good. you are -- you normally don't play people in the playoffs that you haven't crossed paths with so that has a lot to do with it but that's what this game is all about. it takes a lot of effort and
just to get yourself into the so that makes you appreciate them. >> to be honest i felt like -- people say it's faster, which, i guess it depends on the guy. i felt like it was the same last year when we played the colts. it felt the same as my regular season games. i feel like guys were running faster anything like that. obviously we all know the sense of urgency is higher, and it's a level up as far as competition but i felt like i was able to run around and do what i could on a bum foot in a playoff game so i felt like the game wasn't too fast. >> the broncos are seven-point favorites. sound like a lot. mike klis is in the sports office, hi mike. i'm guessing from that spread they must not think roethlisberger and brown will be able to play for pittsburgh. what do you know? >>i think that point spread is more the manning factor, everybody's impressed with how
against san diego. but big ben had a separated shoulder when he got sacked, he went in the locker room apparently to pop it back in, maybe get a painkiller. came out for the last drive, there's no way cincinnati was going to lose that game with big ben's -- then throwing on a separated shoulder unless they lost the game and indeed that's what the bengals did. antonio brown who also burned the broncos three weeks ago, he is in the concussion protocol. those things have a way of clearing up on playoff week. i fully expect both of them will play against the broncos. they do get an extra day, eight days rest between games. >> peyton manning returns to the starting lineup for the first time in two months. should we expect to see hall of fame peyton or the imposter from earlier this season? >>drew, there are three games left for the season. broncos. i think in those three games peyton manning 10 one time have a hall of fame caliber
i think there will be another game where he plays similar to what he did earlier this year. remember, peyton through the season had nine touchdowns against 17 interceptions. and then another game where he played subpar. what happens in the playoffs, the broncos have to figure out how to win a game when peyton manning is not at his best. the quarterback doesn't play at the top of his game all the way through the playoffs. >> that hall of fame better -- performance better be first or they may not have a second game. thanks mike. >> it was so cold in minnesota that tears rolling down the cheeks of vikings fans froze like icicle. -- icicles. is the third close game in nfl history. they needed a short field goal in the final seconds to beat the heat hot -- seahawks but blair walsh hooked it and the seahawks advanced 10-9. aaron rodgers rushes the snap because he notices 30 defenders on the field.
defenders on the field. roger still find the receiver and the packers win 35-18. the avalanche lost tonight as they were beaten by the defending champion block each blackhawks in chicago. dollar shave club. gives him a team-leading 21 goals. the problem was both mary and -- duchenne's goals gives him a team-leading 21 but to blackhawks also had a pair and the avs lost. the nuggets begin an eight-game homestand by beating charlotte. 11 points and six assists for emmanuel mudiay returning from his injury. and after a full season of being smothered in band-aids, peyton manning is clean heading into the playoffs, which is spectacular and a 9health their mandate is placed on ben roethlisberger's right shoulder
