our crews are working on a new news set. the set you've been familiar is not going far, our crews are moving us into a new studio. we will have more details as we get closer to the new set. we're very excited about this. >> and there might be a movie theater, possibly a spa. >> we discussed this. >> maybe a nail salon. >> that would be very nice. >> sparkly and new over there. >> i want to see these plans. >> they're sounding real good. today was a wild one as far as the mountains go we saw so much snow as another storm system is moving in tonight even more fresh powder for all you weekend warriors heading up to the mountains: picking up 13- inches, fresh tracks, blue skies and plenty of powder wherever you are. those are just 24 hour totals
the report comes out at 5:00 a.m. sitting in the 20s, a few spots aurora at 7 degrees. in blackhawk we're 18. mostly cloud cloudy skies. making it feel a whole lot cooler about 12 degrees out here. feels good with a jacket on because it is still brisk as 28. much of the intermountain west. where our next storm system is diving in from. it's been affecting idaho, montana, wyoming even utah over the course of the next 12 hours. it's finally sinking into the north states. a big batch out to the western slope as well. we will start with this one because these lines of snow showers are going to be moving through overnight. not a ton of snow but still one to 2-inches quickly piling up. morgan and logan county.
carbondale. in. this snowfall is moving into the central mountains. the radar doesn't pick up on all of those reports and all of those echoes. vale pass. snow coming down fairly steadily out there too and gusty winds. blowing and drifting snow has been an issue. highway285 between kenosha pass and i believe it's fair play. we're looking at the road shut down out there. just because this snow system is at its peak. we're looking at intense snow. four to 9-inches for the range mountains. go enjoy six to 10 for the flat tops, and again those wind gusts are really going to be an issue creating blizzard like conditions up in the mountains late tonight into early tomorrow. so if you're driving up there, travel is certainly going to be treacherous.
kind of drive. we'll have mostly cloudy skies. few more bands of snow pushing into the north eastern plain as a cold front digging into the eastern corner of the space. that's going to move cooler air into the city. tomorrow still a cool day but so far i think we'll have a little bit of clearing. those showers move out at 10:00. this system begins to wind down. game time looking beautiful but cold. by 10:00, everything starts to move out. here's the deal. broncos-steelers game, will be a little cooler. you'll be surrounded by 10s of thousands of friends to hopefully keep you warm. and it's about 16. the winds still gusting in the foothills and those flurries the east. we'll be in the 30s tomorrow. 20s and 30s out to the foothills and maybe a couple of with 40s.
manning-brady 17 because of peyton's injured heel it didn't happen last november but it could happen next sunday. the steelers will be shorthanded but their best player will play. ben roethlisberger is expected to start under center. you know he wasn't going to miss this one. big ben and the rest of the steelers arrived in denver a little after 5:00 tonight. i was hoping they wouldn't show up. still how effective can ben roethlisberger be? he's without his best weapons. >> with or without the shoulder injury we want to get to the quarterback. it's our mentality every single week. >> i think they're going to do the same thing.
hide pain in this nfl. that's the way it goes. >> say what you will about big ben. to me manning is the big key. if he plays well denver wins. though we know he struggled in the past. 11-13 one and done nine times. so what's the biggest benefit to having 18 instead of 17. former bronco mark slerwit says manning makes the offensive line better. >> it's been a tough situation, no question. it's why manning gives you a better chance. you saw him make some adjustments in the line of scrimmage to put them in better plays and keep them out of line of scrimmage. and that's what he will give you. >> the kc had won 11 in a row. had been the keyword in that sentence.
didn't look that hurt: scored fourth quarter. west in front in close and the seven. but that's how it ended. the patriots moving on 27-20. aaron maddis with more. >> reporter: the broncos need to handle theirs this weekend. denver will host new england in the championship game. the patriots are in the play offs for an incredible sixth straight year. >> it's great to move on to the championship. it's always an honor to be part of that game. we look forward to whoever the opponent is. >> new england will either travel to denver or host the pittsburgh steelers. >> whether we play here or there they're going to have to play really well. i think that's what it comes down to. they're two great football teams.
that's what it is. it is what it is. so we go to denver or peyton comes here, whatever it is. >> i'm just glad to be playing. the play offs all away teams won. so it doesn't matter it's all about executing and going out there and playing great football. >> they beat pittsburgh in week one. they lost to the broncos in week 12. >> it helps a little but it's a completely new game. it's a new scenario. as much as you know them they played you too so they know you. >> broncos and patriots would be a fantastic game and best news for denver is it would not stadium. >> on to the nfc. green bay at arizona the packers trying to avenge a loss
cards with three. carson palmer gets lucky. to michael floyd. then more luck. four to go. hail mary time. it worked earlier in the year against the lions and it worked again. rogers to janice are you kidding me. rogers and the pack never got the ball back. palmer to larry fitzgerald and that's all she wrote. arizona will face the seattle- carolina winner. believe it or not there's more to sports than just the nfl like the nhl. colorado's iceman taking on columbus tonight. the worse team in all of hockey. but also a team that beat the avs earlier this season. we start this one in the third period with the game tied up at 1-1. pass calvin pickert. back to back impressive performances but tonight it was
as beaten by that bad bad blue jackets team. final score was 2-1. we finish with basketball. no nuggets tonight but we have some hoop highlights. college basketball. csu-utah state. visitors look to have the game in hand they were up at late after jayland moore put it back. kyle daniels with the dunk. csu within one. 91-90 but they get no closer. utah state wins a final score with 96-92. we will have much more on the broncos tomorrow. game day live is a full hour from 9:00 until 10:00. after the broncos big win, we'll be there until 7:00. they better win because that's a long time in the losing locker room. >> you like the broncos by how much again? >> i'm going 14.
