>> exactly, but only after we get -- my goodness, after we get out of this cold night is when we get those warm temperatures. okay, there we go. let's get to the forecast because we had a cold front that swept through early this morning and that's the reason why we have cooler temperatures today. 70s around town. i'm not complaining about this. it feels really nice. in northern colorado temperatures are in the 60s and closer to the foothills temperatures are in the 50s and 60s. what this cold front did, outside of our studios here, this is our home speer and logan. you can see how those trees are moving like crazy in front of the camera. the flags are, too. clouds right now are just partly cloudy. those winds coming in from the north, gusts now up to 20, even 30 miles per hour across colorado and mostly coming in from the north, but this was a dry front that swept through. so we're mainly dry across the state. only a few clouds have increased over colorado and mainly the front range, but
it's over parts of the dakotas and out towards the midwest where we currently have that cold front causing a little commotion in the form of showers, thunderstorms and heavy rain. that's where we find the threat for severe weather this afternoon and evening while in colorado. our forecast is expected to be calm tonight, a little breezy and chilly. the rest of the afternoon will look like this. our skies will gradually clear as those temperatures drop. our overnight lows are expected to drop that's a little chilly in comparison to what we've seen previous evenings so far this season. we'll be under mostly clear skies. winds will calm down 5 to 15 miles per hour. because of that colder air in place, we'll see the temperatures drop into the mid- 20s to low 30s around the yampa river valley. so that freeze warning starts at 9:00 tonight and lasts through tomorrow morning. so it would be a good idea to cover those sensitive plants or
