through the evening. that's going to bring us some significant snowfall here in the city. but a look at radar and satellite and you'll see that northern colorado we have a dry slot right there with sunshine peeking out over the csu campus. here in the metro area we have the light snow and also some areas of fog. so we're going to put that chance for flurries in the forecast still this morning. it's going to be calm and cool and we'll get a break from the snowy weather and then those clouds will taken this afternoon -- thicken this afternoon with snow showers increasing. this time with that temperature timeline and you see by 39 degrees that's about as warm as it's going to get around 1:00 p.m. and the temperatures will take a dip after that as the snow increases here in the city. and then tonight we'll go into a winter storm watch, i anticipate this watch to be upgraded. but basically what this is, is you know it's going to be difficult to travel across colorado tonight into monday and even into tuesday. now with the snowfall starting this evening and lasting through tuesday, i'm examining for us to see -- expecting for us to see accumulations in the metro area from 8 to 16 inches.

welcome back everybody. let's get a check with belen de leon right now. because belen, we saw that overnight. really nothing -- no big deal but tonight is going to be some
8:02 am
>> just preview yes and the snow investing overnight -- increasing overnight is really going to make traveling difficult across colorado and that's going to take us through tuesday when the travel advisories will finally expire. but here's a look at how much snow we're expecting for the next few days. again that heavier amount of snow the stronger storm system, is expected to arrive this afternoon, this evening, last through monday and even through part of tuesday. so with all of that time frame just kind of coupled up, we could see from 8 to 16 inches here in the city and higher amounts down south near castle inches. northern colorado, northeast colorado, some 6 to 12 inches. our northern foothills one to two feet and our amounts in our southern foothills, bailey, evergreen, conifer 10 to 12 inches by the time the storm is said and done. we have right now this first round of snow trying to come through colorado and right now we have some light snow in the backyard. our temperatures are much colder. we've got 20s right now on the map in the high country 20s and teens.
8:03 am
this afternoon your highs are below normal and we'll have 30s in fort collins and denver out warmer. in southern colorado 40s and even 50s in the forecast in the high country 20s and 30s. so here's a lookout doppler 9 -- at doppler 9. some light snow in the city but up in fort collins and longmont and love listened you're saying what we're done with it. out from behind the clouds up this storm system is still trying to work its way to the south. now our next storm is still on the west coast. it's going to gain some strength overnight and then finally move into colorado into this evening and tomorrow and into tuesday. and it's a storm system that's going to be pretty big. it's going to affect a lot of people that are trying to get around. especially on monday and into tuesday. but here's a look at the progression and how the storm will finally develop over the foreign corp.ers -- four corners through tonight into tomorrow and into tuesday as the storm system kind of moves over colorado and the rockies
8:04 am
plains and into the midwest. it's going to cause some big problems there as well. colorado. and how that snow will increase afternoon. so if you're around town around 6:00, we're already going to snowfall. the travel to the south is going to be difficult and even into the high country. overnight the snow increases morning's commute. i think here had the city tomorrow morning -- in the city storm morning we could see two to four inches but in northern colorado up to about six inches by tomorrow morning's drive. so here's a look at your city and how much snow we can see by tomorrow morning. remember, 9news will start at 4:00 tomorrow morning so you can get everything related to any closures and any delays here with the crew starting bright and early -- snowy and early. 23 on monday and tuesday 19. and we finally start to see some clearing on wednesday. if folks have questions specifically to where they live.

8:27 am
many times and now, for the first time in the 2016 primary season, voters will choose winners and losers. the iowa caucuses are tomorrow night and 9news will be there. this morning, we look at the possibilities that lie ahead. will the trump juggernaut keep cruising or lose steam? and will voters go along with the idea that now is hillary clinton's time? will they vote to pull further left with bernie sanders? what could it mean for colorado's role with our caucuses just one month later? joining me now to hash it out are 9news political experts james mejia a democrat and kelly mccan a republican. so we'll start with the democrats. they will have a result in the march 1st caucuses. if you trust the polls, bernie sanders is going to win new hampshire by a substantial amount. how critical is iowa for hillary clinton and what is it going to mean for colorado? either way the race goes in iowa? >> well, we know that hillary
8:28 am
in iowa and aunt den have to -- doesn't even have to win iowa. stay close in iowa and new hampshire but when states like nevada and colorado come into play, and even south carolina, you're going to see more voters of color and hillary clinton is states. >> not going to give democratic voters pause if it looks like she can't pick up the first two states? >> there will certainly be a shift in momentum. i think bernie keeps going for a couple of months after that but hillary is going to gain steam thereafter more and more. >> do you agree? do you think hillary clinton can lose iowa and strong into super tuesday? >> i think she needs to win iowa and new hampshire because she's already under fire. the e-mails are coming back. people are still talking about them. and the fact that bernie keeps finding more and more donors and getting more and more endorsements and getting more attention. he could really end up being kind of like the ron paul of the democrat party. for 2008 for the republicans. >> yeah. a lot of the democrats i see on
8:29 am
description. the heart wants bernie sanders, the head wants somebody more clinton. could bernie sanders win the nomination? it's a marathon. bernie i think will do well in the first couple of states and he may very well win the first term. this is a delegate count, hillary clinton knows the inside game and focused on the long-term and going to get the dell bats. >> but clearly she's scared. i mean the hillary clinton smear machine is already going after the people that are looking into the e-mail scandal and we've already seen the fact that she's just like -- starting to get more and more nervous about it. i think that she's going to first thing out only so i -- figure out some way to get out if she doesn't have some real early wins because like bernie sanders cannot be the nominee for democrats. actually -- i feel the bern. i would love it if he was a nominee for democrat. >> i think i'm getting that from you. all right, so now we learned on
8:30 am
department is looking into whether some of the e-mails hillary clinton sent over her private server were in fact classified at the time. which would be contrary to what she said on the program and plenty of others, to someone who thinks ma might have been a foolish move, who would you say about your judgment generally? >> well, nothing i sent or received was marked classified at the time. that is an absolute fact. it's been verified over and over and over again. >> is this news coming in too late to factor into the iowa results or could that make voters a little more nervous? >> well, i think it will make some voters nervous. i do think it's rather late in the process. she's also following the e-mail protocol that of former secretaries of state had followed: i think she's got a little bit of background going in her favor. too late in the process, she's still doing well and wins the eventual nomination. >> she may do well, but i think it's definitely going to be that deciding factor for the very few delegates that are
8:31 am
but also a real problem with young people and doesn't have the energy of obama. at the latest town hall, last case all of the questions that people were asking her was some derivation of why do young democrats not like you and that's bad for her. >> yeah. that heart and head thing we talked about seems to be going on the on the gop side as well. i suppose you could call trump and cruz the heart. in that case the heart is going to win it looks like at least in iowa. what are the odds trump wins? >> you know, it's -- entirely possible. i mean, it's just such a bizarre year this year. we'll just kind of have to see what happens. but our delegate count is a little bit different and our process is going to take a little bit longer to figure out who's got the momentum or not versus what the democrats are looking at. >> well, that's right mean the way the -- i mean the way the republicans have set it up. iowa is a little less important. i do think trump wins and calm of other early -- a couple of
