the fresh powder, and 5:00 and 6:00, the lighten a showers and possibly -- light rain showers and possibly snow showers move in, and heavier snow sunday night into monday morning. and even at that it doesn't look all that impressive for denver. tomorrow, temperatures in the mid-40s for kick off in the upper 30s, so the second half has a better shot of the wintry mix. the cold front cools off the temperature, stirs up the front, and allows the precipitation to move in. 1:00 dry up and down the corridor, 4:30, 5:00 wrapping things up, and moisture moves into the metro area. 7:00 snow fall as temperatures cool off enough to just be looking at snow throughout the rest at evening. tonight -- of the evening. one to two inches in the metro area. two to four to the south, and the foothills and high country
up to a foot. tonight comfortable, 20s and 30s overnight. teens up in the mountain, again mostly cloudy skies overnight, and then tomorrow morning, wake up the sunrise is out and about, the clouds increasing throughout the day. still a nice one in southeast colorado with a balmy temperature, some spots still in the 30s out west. stay in the 40s around here. high temperatures right after lunchtime, and then as the fronted dives in we cool off fast. blustering afternoon as the showers move through. few early morning flurries, but everything done in time for the monday morning drive, and then bounce back a bit. sunshine and mid-50s by next thursday, and you'll have to wait for the nine-day, we warm up even more. one day you get the snow and then 60s and sunshine in colorado. >> you want to bottle it up and save it. >> and if you've heard about the extended, oh my gosh, remarkable.
in the mountain town of mintern, they call this the broncos house. since the 1960s, the family is decking their house to the nines to celebrate the team. they put up a sign every week showing who the team is playing next, and line the fence with hand made jerseys. pretty cool. brady versus manning, the patriots -- the browsers. the top -- broncos. the top two square off. >> we've been talk agent it all -- about it all week, and now just 15 hours away, and now sam and ron discuss the keys to a win for both teams. ron, we look at the game tomorrow, and everybody wants to talk about peyton manning, tom brady. i think the big key to the game is turnovers. >> >. look at last week.
turnover. that was it. i agree with you. but i think there's three things, they have to hit brady, hit him all the time, if they don't he'll tear them apart. run the football, if they run it they win, and you know what, the receivers were awful last week. they were, there's no other way to say it. they have to catch the football. i don't want to hear about the wind or sun or knuckle balls, catch the ball. thomas will have a big game h. got paid, he's the best receiver. he's the best with manning. thomas has to match whatever anybody does on the other side. >> i think everybody has a match. this is a game to me that, you know the new england patriot, we think of them as awe high scoring group, but hold them under 24 you have a chance to win the game. the broncos in their eight wins against the patriots and tom brady, 24 or less the patriots have scored.
a lot more than the broncos. the last few years we haven't been able to say this, but the patriots offense is better. >> so like a 7-6 game? >> no, like a 26-23 game. >> i think the broncos will win because back in september i picked them to go to the super bowl. >> i take the patriots 26-23, but i hope you're right, and it's rare i feel that. >> i know [ laughter ] >> that does it for us.
>. from colorado's sports leader, here's rod mackey. kicking and screaming, something denver didn't do in the playoffs last year which is why gary kubiak is here. a division championship is not enough for john elway, he wants a super bowl championship, and now the broncos are just two wins away thanks to that attitude. >> the kicking and screaming is battling, that's the way you look at it. anybody, if you're in a fight and kicking and screaming, you're giving it all you've
as a football team this year. fair and the staff have done a tremendous -- gary and the staff have done a tremendous job of convincing the guys to play hard for 60 minutes, and even if things aren't going well early in the game we have to keep going, and eventually things will turn around, and that's what we've done, so if anything we've improved on from last year is kicking and screaming, and that's the last time i'll say that, be it that's one thing the -- but that's one thing the team has done. >> we'll have more with john elway tomorrow morning at 9:00, from 9:00 to 10:00 on game day live from the stadium. you know manning and brady 17 was supposed to happen back in november, but he was injured, so he watched it in the equipment room with ware. >> neither of us played in the game, and we were both in the equipment room watching the
second guesser, you know, wrap up von, i really enjoyed his commentary during the game. >> peyton one time, malik missed a tackle, and he said go out there and tell him to run this play, i'm running all the way to the sideline saying some pass rush play and it actually worked, and they got a sack, and i'm like go tell [to do this, and he puts his stuff on and does this, and it's funny to see that, but it was fun at that time. >> he and i were smiling before the team meeting that it would be nice to be out on the actual playing field this time around as opposed to in the equipment room where you're watching it on tv in mute so you don't have to hear all of the analysis. the hot dogs aren't bad in there, i'll say that, be it i much prefer -- but i much
>> hmm, hot dogs. the rams played in the east west shrine games. the west won by 20. and what's better than three in a row? four in a row. i'm stealing john fox's locker room speech, but that's what the avalanche hoped to do tonight. easier said than done in dallas, the stars the third best team in the nhl, but the avalanche better tonight. giving up just one goal and the stars had over 100 shots. the avalanche get the final 3- 1. where did john elway spend the night before the championship game? at the nuggets game. and he saw a good one. denver down to detroit, make it up 1, fade away into the pistons bench with 23 seconds left. he had 30 as denver holds on to
104-101 putting an end to their two-game losing streak. the ledge hardwood. cu and washington state, the worst team in the conference by the way. buffs down one late, but out to george king who cashes in the three. cu wins a game they had to have. 75-70. so we've got football, hockey, basketball, what's missing from the sports cast? >> baseball. >> right, spring training around the corner. coors field today the place to be, a chance for the fans to talk to some of the rockies, and the media showed up as well asking the players questions like cargo, asking him about the trade rumors. >> >. to be honest with you guys, right now my focus is on the same thing it's always been, you know, training, troying to get better and -- trying to get better and stronger, you know, i never really pay attention to what's going to happen tomorrow, you know, or what happens in the past.
troy to get better like i said and right now i'm a rocky and excited about the upcoming season, so excited about spring training and sit together with my team, and you know, just have some fun and play baseball. >> and finally if missy franklin played soccer she would be mallory pugh. the mountain vista senior made her national debut against ireland and she scored a goal. she's just 17! she has been rumored to go pro, but she insists she's playing at ucla next season. and she still has a season at high school. they play in the spring. we have all the high school stars here. >> oh yes, sir. >> 17, just amazing. >> i have broncos tomorrow.
and the the boys have to work their mile high magic in the first half, that's when the weather should be just perfect. mostly cloudy sky, quiet, it's the second half we'll be looking at as far as seeing some wet weather, but then. >> 60s! next friday and saturday. >> it's a reward for winning. >> absolutely [ laughter ] >> >. everybody is winning. >> all right, if you watched 9 news last night we had a couple of wardrobe changes that might have confused you. kyle clark swapped his jacket every time he read a broncos story. yeah, that happened, and the switch out actually happened. i was there making sure he was fuelly suited on screen --
