no arrests yet, after a shooting this morning in southeast aurora. gunfire left one man dead and another injured. police rushed to south espana way, near the intersection of tower road and quincy avenue around 7:00 this morning. they found a car there that had hit a tree. there was a man inside that car who had gunshot wounds. he was pronounced dead at the hospital. while police were investigating, another man approached them to say he had also been shot during that same incident. he is expected to survive. police determined the actual shooting happened about a block away from where the car crashed, but they say they still have more details to sort out about how this crime played out. they aren't naming any suspects as of yet. a big sinkhole causing traffic trouble downtown. a 120-year-old water main burst at eighth avenue and delaware street this morning. workers say repairs are taking longer than they figured. denver water is asking people to use alternate routes at least through the evening rush.

4:03 pm
this is the time of year that we typically will see that. we're certainly going to continue to watch out for that. on the horizon, a new storm colorado. temperatures in the 50s today. we've had lots of sunshine and it's been gorgeous all up and down the front range, here in denver, up and through fort collins, boulder. fort collins right now, 45 degrees. greeley at 47. fort lupton, 49. downtown denver, 57 degrees. at dia, cooler at 48. in aurora, you're sitting at 54. of course the big story all across the country has been and will be what's going on across the southeast and east coast, which is all of that snow. we're not all that concerned about if we're speaking about ourselves and we're speaking selfishly because we don't have a lot of snow in our forecast. most of what's coming will come on sunday, where more snow and more wind will be moving into

we've already seen a ton of the avalanche danger so far this season and as we watch this next system move in, we see those winds kick up, perhaps warmer temperatures. we are expecting the avalanche danger to get higher. in fact, we've already had our first avalanche fatality of the season. 9news mountain newsroom reporter matt renoux joins us live from summit county. matt, it's not just the people in the backcountry that are seeing avalanches right now. >> reporter: you're right, becky. in fact, there's a slide right behind me that happened today here near the eisenhower/johnson tunnels. yesterday, two small slides reached highway 40 near berthoud pass. a 32-year-old died in an avalanche yesterday as well near crested butte. the first avalanche fatality in colorado, but there have been nine so far this season across the west. conditions are only moderate to considerable right now, but warmer weather is making avalanche danger rise and also keeping forecasters with the center pretty busy. they not only go out and check
4:05 pm
backcountry, but they also work with cdot to mitigate avalanche danger around colorado roads. it has been a busy season already, with hundreds admissions in the highcountry. now with warming temperatures, they expect to be busier. yesterday, a person died in the avalanche and two slides near berthoud pass. today, the small slide at i-70 apartment the eisenhower tunnel could be the start of an active weekend. >> got some modest snowfall with a lot of wind. that create the wind-drifted slabs on top of weak snow. so we saw a cycle of human and naturally running avalanches. we do have our first warmup in quite sometime with a lot of fresh snow. so we'll often see small avalanches in the surface snow when that happens. >> reporter: on average, there are about six avalanche fatalities a year in colorado. january and february typically bring the heaviest activity for avalanches in colorado. >> so we're just getting into the heavy season.
4:06 pm

4:09 pm
the death penalty. is it already over? why do you need the policy change, if so? >> it's not all the way over, though, because we have three people on death row currently. i know, because all three are from my district. all three are african american males my age that went to the same high school. we've got a problem with the death penalty and how it's being used in colorado. but the solution isn't making it easier to get a conviction. >> more of this debate on "balance of power," sunday morning at 8:45 here on 9news, channel 20. eleven people in six states are sick after eating packaged salads produced at a dole facility in ohio. one death has been linkedin michigan. the center for disease control and prevention says listeria is causing the illnesses. dole stopped all production at the springfield, ohio plant and is withdrawing packaged salads on the market produced there. no one in colorado has reported getting sick.

4:24 pm
south, a little further inland, west, we've seen bigger totals. this is in parts of the carolinas and into kentucky. 11 inches of snow reported. 5, 6 inches as well. this system really having a huge impact on the east coast. it's good news that we are seeing a lot of it get out of the way here within a couple of days, but also even better news that the patriots are arriving in denver now. they are missing out on all of that. even still, we'll give you a chance for snow in time for the game on sunday. it will be flurries. temperatures at kickoff will be at 41 degrees. we'll be dropping into the 40s by 4:30. this has been our weather story today. isn't that gorgeous? lots of sunshine, beautiful temperatures, all up and down the front range, even up into the mountains. look at this. 55 near downtown denver. dia at 48. it's 46 in greeley. 45 for fort collins, 44 around longmont. idaho springs, 51. here outside in the 9news backyard, we've got lots of sunshine.
4:25 pm
we're expecting to see all of that beautiful sunshine and then we're going to watch on our television screens what's coast. that system is expected to travel up the coast over the next 24 to 48 hours and it's going to take until late saturday night and early sunday morning for it to finally clear out and give all of those folks a chance to dig themselves out more of snow. back here in town, look at that beautiful sunshine. we'll have partly cloudy skies, maybe even mostly clear skies tonight. foot hill locations will sew a few more clouds through 8:00 tomorrow morning. tomorrow afternoon looks to be a very mild day with partly cloudy skies. once we get to saturday evening, the next system pushes in, hitting the mountains first before it moves in sunday afternoon, sunday evening, onto the front range. for your temperatures out there tonight, a little on the cool side, but not bad. 17, the low for greeley.
4:26 pm
fort collins will see a low of 21. mountain areas will be dipping well into the teens. western slope, about 20 for an overnight low. eastern plains will see lows in the lower to middle 20s. getting into tomorrow, not record-setting. record highs in the upper 60s, but this is nice. 57 for denver. 51 for greeley. fort collins will climb to a high of 55. out east, 50s and 60s. we'll see 30s and 40s in the mountains, and a high of about 40 out around grand junction. denver, our forecast, we're calling for a low of 27 tonight. clear, calm, cool, nothing to worry about for us. winds out of the southwest at 5 to 10 miles per hour. tomorrow afternoon, 57, the high. partly cloudy, even warmer than what we saw today. winds, a little breezy from time to time out of the southwest at 5 to 10. sunday is when things get cooler. that's as the system crosses i- 25. highs reach the low 40s. we'll cool off quickly, especially as we start to see snow move in.
4:27 pm
accumulating snow for us monday morning. that's when we're looking at it wrapping up, monday morning. but 1 to 3 inches is what the forecast is calling for right now. highs will reach about 35 degrees. tuesday. then we warm right back up to a high of 50 on wednesday. we've got one little system moving in that's going to interrupt our nice forecast. but i think we certainly can handle it, especially when you compare it to what is going on out on the east coast. tell you what, really think the patriots are thanking their lucky stars they are here now instead of later, because that might become an issue for anybody traveling. >> right. it's going to be miserable for so many people. just feel for them. >> this system is just huge. >> we've been on the other side of this, where it's been bad here and great elsewhere. >> just going to say, seems like we flip-flopped with the east coast. >> which, you know what? i'm okay with the break, letting other people take it versus us for a change. you just hope that everyone
