six inches february of last year. the last time we had nine inches of snow in denver was a storm in february of 2013. are you noticing a trend here? february has been a big month for snow in denver and last february, we broke a record going back 103 years for the most snow in that month. if we want to break that record again, we will need just over 22 inches of snow. now, the coming storm is expected to impact travel out at the airport starting as early as tomorrow night. airlines are keeping a close eye on the situation. as you can imagine. frontier, already allowing passengers traveling out of denver to make changes. if you have a flight or expect someone to arrive, keep a close eye on the changes and other updates happening this weekend. the update has been releasing the e-mails from hillary clinton's private servers for several months now,

means if people don't understand it. >> reporter: it is worth noting the use of the word marked to qualify that answer. which could be what this all ends upcoming down to. but today's news only fueled suspicion among primary voters there could be another shoe to drop in the clinton e-mail story. i will be heading to iowa for 9news this weekend. look for previews of the first in the nation caucuses and the candidates' final push for votes sunday and monday and a wrap up of results and reactions monday night at 9:00 and 10:00. also on tuesday morning. a few rare january brush fires around colorado today. flames scorched just a few acres of open space behind monarch high school in louisville. the fire was contained before it reached the school. another fire at fort carson this afternoon. burned 1500 acres but no structures threatened there.

tomorrow, a nice day. mix of clouds and sunshine. highs above average. it is sunday night into monday when the heavy snow and wind may materialize with an area of low pressure setting up in southeast colorado. that is a favorable location for big snowstorms for denver. then we see a warming and drying trend the first few days of the new week. and then of course, there is a little football game in california. >> i have to drive now. >> no snow in santa clara. >> not this year. >> the 9news superbowl is up next. the tonight show up in ten minutes. we will update you on 9news tomorrow morning. thanks for being with us.
