8:14 am
trying to make its way on shore in to the pacific northwest. what we have going on right now, we're talking about the jet stream. the flow of the jet stream is very westerly but in to monday this jet stream is going to be more northwesterly. it's going to take that storm that's going to be in the pacific northwest and position it right over colorado, moving it over colorado monday in to tuesday. and that's really when we're going to see those weather changes. today we're going to see that cool-down. highs are going to be in the upper 40s and low 50s. changes arrive monday in the form of rain and snow. on tuesday that cold air arrives. we're going to start off with snow on tuesday and also stronger winds. this morning up in fort collins it's bright and sunny. a little breezy out there. nothing like the winds we've been experiencing this past week. temperatures are in the 30s. high temperatures, 30s and 40s. it's going to be a gorgeous day
8:15 am
our ski resorts and ski areas. lower elevations, that cold front that swept through colorado brought in the cold air and knocked us down to where we should be this time of year. upper 40s at d.i.a. 51 in fort collins. 50s down south. here's a look at your futurecast. not a whole lot happening. we'll have clouds though. around 1:30 this afternoon you'll notice some. maybe if you're out and about grabbing a bite to eat, you'll be okay. later this afternoon maybe some light snow showers developing near the front range mountains because of that little very little accumulation is expected and no travel advisories have been issues. the drive along the high country weather goes. tomorrow morning we'll start off dry here in the city but the day is going to end very differently. in the high country some very our northern mountains. monday afternoon and evening is
8:16 am
develop in the high country and plan ahead for monday. 25 will be the overnight low tonight. still pretty calm. here's a look at the snow forecast that takes us from monday morning in to tuesday afternoon because that's when i see the storm system exiting. this is not set in stone. the storm system is barely making its way on shore but right now early estimates i'm thinking from 1 to 3 inches in the metro area. possibly higher amounts through the front range mountains. monument hill, palmer divide. i think the ground is so warm that we're not going to see a whole lot of accumulation. on monday the high of 48. tuesday, 35. it will be colder as well. wednesday, 45. thursday, 50. friday, a high of 55 degrees. just a reminder, the twitter poll is still going on. do you want snow? do you not want snow? here are a couple of your answers. the snow just melted, no mas says one of the viewers.

8:19 am
welcome back, everyone. it's 8:19. you are planting today. we're going to get our hands dirty. >> you know that expression, never plant anything until after mother's day? >> no. >> everyone keeps saying that. i've been saying for years, no, that's completely wrong. never plant anything tender until after mother's day. in the meantime we have the toughest plant of all which are pansies. this bowl has been out all winter long.
8:20 am
it was a little fluffier till a cat took a nap tin. but i checked with belen and she said the lowest we got, in december twice we hit zero. so this has been out in zero-degree weather. they're happy about it. they're polar plants. look how well they survive. they just need a little cleaning up. they'll be great. i'm saying take the gamble. it's a slight gamble, and plant. what color do you want? do you want to do these? >> sure, why not. >> first we put in a good potting soil. >> you really are going to make my hands dirty today. >> moisten the soil a little bit. makes it easier to plant. use a premium potting soil where it's organic. it's if full of wood chips, it's not soil. you've all done this before. we've got gravity and our fingers.
8:21 am
ryan, yours are in a four-pack. you're going to have to tear the four apart. you've got four segments. pull them apart. these came apart naturally. i usually start in the middle. plant one. no tags. then just work your way around about two inches apart. and we've got some snow coming up. that's not a big deal. because these have not hardened off, you probably want to take them in the garage overnight on monday or tuesday night. >> just for a couple nights? >> yeah. in the meantime, in the next couple of weeks, in partial shade until they're used to full sun. acclimate them to the colder nights because they've been in a greenhouse obviously. so they're not ready for zero tomorrow. we're probably not going to have anymore zero. so these should cruise along like how this one did.
8:22 am
couple times, these should be just fine. by april and may these will be outstanding. you never wait to plant pansies till after mother's day because if you do that, they really hate the heat. they're cold lovers. they love the cold weather. >> how do we care for these things? >> keep them moist, and acclimation is the key. and use your intuition for that. >> i don't think we should use that. [ laughter ] >> if not, we'll call proctor. >> we'll put all the tips on 9news.com. it was a lot to go over, especially for us. >> you guys did a great job.

right now on balance of power, colorado democrats need to decide. are they with her, or do they feel the burn? with colorado caucuses just over a week away, we bring you voices from both campaigns. in a moment, bernie sanders' national press secretary. first, colorado governor john hickenlooper supporting hillary clinton. >> governor, thanks so much for taking the time. we appreciate it. >> of course. >> you're a super delegate for the dnc. like a majority of the super delegates, you've already publically endorsed hillary clinton in this race. a lot of bernie sanders supporters are pretty upset about this whole super delegate situation. what do you say to those folks? >> i think this primary is going to come down to a vote by vote battle. i don't think the super delegate issues are going to be as impactful as some people think.
8:51 am
have to make a strong argument and convince the folks that come to the caucuses that they're the person that deserves their support. >> if bernie sanders did win the nomination, would you back him for the presidency? >> i think bernie has got a lot of work to do in terms of bringing together his group. i'd have to wait and see exactly how he got to that point. at this point he's got a long way to go. that's kind of a hypothetical question that -- >> i can see it's a hypothetical. but there's only two choices really on the democratic side at the moment. i'm wondering if you've put any thought in to it. >> obviously there can be circumstances, i think anybody, who knows. in any hypothetical, when it's purely hypothetical there's so many varieties of things that
8:52 am
usually when i answer hypotheticals i get myself in trouble. >> so you'd have to wait and entertain it once it happened, is what you're saying? >> i want to see how the primary campaign unfolds and exactly how everything comes together. it's the same with legislation. people are always -- if this comes to your desk, will you support it? well, it depends what finally comes to my desk and what looks like and some things you'd automatically support, in the end you don't support for one reason or another. just better to wait and see how a thing gets to you before you announce what you're going to do. >> a lot of democrats seem torn heading in to the march 1st caucuses. many think hillary is more experienced but they also have a hard time getting excited about her and they think bernie is true to their issues and comes across as more genuine. what should those folks be considering about hillary? >> i think if you look at what the country needs, it's
8:53 am
people want to get excited. i understand that. i have some old friends who grew up in upstate new york. one friend's father, a lifetime republican. hillary came up and she won him over. if you step back and look at what she's done, she's a remarkable candidate. rarely have we had someone so qualified to be president. >> why do you think she has such a big fight on her hands with bernie sanders then? >> i think part of it is just that. for a long time, large amounts of money have been spent with the sole purpose to diminish her. some of the stuff about the server and that turns out colin powell and condoleezza rice had the same issue using private servers, that the state department servers weren't reliable. each one of these, large amounts of money are being spent to broadcast it, to make it sound like somehow she didn't make the right decision or she's not
8:54 am
>> governor john hickenlooper, thank you so much for your time. joining us from the bernie sanders campaign is simone sanders, no relation. thank you for your time. >> thank you for having me. glad to be here. >> i wanted to start off the bat with the issue of electability. some of the undecided democrats are worried bernie might lose in the general election because he embraces the term socialist. how is that not a concern? >> well, let me be frank. senator sanders is a self-described democratic socialist and he has not hidden his political ideology. what is definite is senator sanders in these general election match-ups between the republican candidates beats these republicans by a larger margin than secretary clinton. he beats donald trump. he beats rubio. he beats cruz. i want to put those folks in colorado at ease that senator sanders is definitely an
8:55 am
>> you're not concerned people won't just hear it as a flavor of socialist? >> we're not concerned at all. recently at a town hall senator sanders was asked what is socialism? what does that mean to him? he was frank. it means the top 1% of people in this country should not be the only folks benefiting from the quote/unquote american dream. democratic socialism to him means that education is a right. healthcare is a right. that's why he's calling for a medicare for all. we're not concerned with any of the attacks that the republicans might throw the senator's way because he has literally been saying the same kind of things for the last 30 years. he's been consistent in who he is, what he has fought for, and we're going to be able to make that case in this general election. >> i hear from a lot of democrats who feel like senator sanders is truer to their issues

but they also look at hillary clinton and say she's got the credentials. she's more experienced. what would you say to someone on the fence thinking about that issue? >> i think that's a great question. no one doubts that secretary clinton, of course she was secretary of state. no one doubts she has the experience. but senator sanders also has experience. he's been a legislator for the last 30 years. he's served in leadership in congress. but he also has something called judgment. and a lot of times when experience is not available to you, judgment is all that you have. senator sanders has shown time and time again whether it was voting no against going to war in iraq, whether it's standing up against disastrous trade deals like the trans-pacific partnership. >> the exit polls in the early states show a lot of senator sanders' support came from independents. i'm wondering how concerned the campaign is about colorado. because in colorado we have a closed caucus system. you had to have already been registered democrat, unlike

open and you can show up day of. >> definitely. so senator sanders' message we believe is one that speaks to hardworking american people whether they're black, white, latino, native american, democrat, or independents. >> if an unaffiliated voter shows up and they're not registered democrat, they're going to be turned away. and my question is do you think you can overcome that obstacle? do you think there are enough pre-registered democrats in colorado to put him over the edge? >> we do think we can overcome that obstacle mainly because we think folks in colorado are ready for the kind of change senator sanders is talking about. >> simone sanders with the best campaign, thank you so much for your time. we appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. >> both of those interviews you just saw had to be edited down for time. if you want to see the entire unedited interviews, go to 9news.com and look for balance of power. we'll see you next week on
