4:05 pm
the mountains are the ones that are carrying that lightning especially out towards the san juans. we zoom in a little bit more, our friend to the south, douglas and el paso county, they have some storms carrying some lightning. right now around the city some light rain and same goes for around the foothills. we'll continue to see clouds increase and through overnight hours the clouds will kind of could fall closer to the foothills up north near boulder county, but any rain around the metro will be much lighter, about .1-inch. with the arrival of the cold front we have stronger winds. right now it's breezy around town. overnight the wind will shift and become more easterly. what that does, it creates upslope. so those clouds will stick around and we'll also have the development of fog. that could become dense

4:07 pm
the week for us. what does this diagnosis of pneumonia mean? >> shetch got an infection. pneumonia could be viral -- she got an infection. pneumonia could be viral which means our body takes care of it or it could be bacteria and you take antibiotics. basically you get a respiratory infection and it settles into the lung one side or the other and that's the pneumonia part of it. that can take its toll on your body and body. it makes you very exhausted and it takes a lot to recuperate from. >> i've heard so much about, that the fatigue alone. you've got to give your body time to heal. >> if you talk to somebody in the past that's had pneumonia, you say you know you have pneumonia because you're not only coughing but feeling very under the weather, very fatigued and can't do much during the day. she has a very rigorous schedule. i tell my patients you need to
4:08 pm
give your body an edge to recuperate and after this two weeks of light duty basically. in her case because of her campaign schedule she wasn't able to do that. i tell my patients if you don't rest, you'll extend how long this sickness is there. on top of that you might actually get to the point where your body is we're done and we're going to make you rest and you collapse. that's probably what happened here. >> i hear so much of the time you start to get sick and you get this roller because you're getting antibiotics and you go up and back down. >> it's usually about the two to three day point when the antibiotics kick in and you feel good and want to get out there and do thing. that's the cautious period because you want to make sure again you get that rest you need. i tell people all the time i'm a doctor. get that three or four days of good rest. get that two weeks of decent rest and you'll recover a lot more quicker and more fuller.
4:09 pm
if we get that diagnosis? >> no. 1 rest, take your antibiotics as prescribed and even after three or four days, if you start feeling better, extend what you're doing, but if you feel worse, go ahead and pull back and get more rest. you really can't rest enough in that time period to recover. >> we hear so often in people that are much older, it can be fairly, fair livers. >> that money ya can be pneumonia can be inconvenience when your body takes care of it fairly quickly and it can be fatal as well, especially when you're older. people can die from it. you have to take it very seriously. >> good to see you, dr. john. >> thanks. >> clinton's campaign hasn't said a lot about her health and that makes people wonder about donald trump's claims that she isn't healthy enough to be president are accurate.
4:10 pm
well voters respond, brandon. >> to talk about that we've got the 9news political experts. i just want to give people a sense of where you guys are coming from on this. do you think both candidate should be releasing their medical records and their financial records, for that matter? >> i think they absolutely both should considering the fact that they're 68 and 70 respectively. people are hoping that they're going to be able to see what both of these candidates are facing healte make it through a term well. >> i think it's fine, you know. the clinton campaign said today they'd, releasing more medical -- they'd be releasing more medical records in the up in coming days. she's obviously has been working way too hard. i had to stop. i'm 30. it's a killer lifestyle. hillary clinton has been running ostensibly for president since 2008 before. that she was a u.s. senator and
4:11 pm
who probably doesn't take too many days off work. i think she should heed the doctor's advice. >> but both of you think it's fair for people to scrutinize where our candidates are as far as their health. >> we're voting for somebody to be the commander in chief in our country. yes, absolutely, knowing that they can handle the job is critical. i think one of the biggest problems we're facing is how the clinton campaign it. after she collapsed she didn't allow the press to follow her. they didn't respond for 90 minutes initially saying she was overheated even though it was in the late 70-degree area and then saying that she was dehydrated and then finally saying that she had that money ya and this is an -- pneumonia and this is an indicator of the fact that the clinton campaign seems to be very secret tiff and quiet. there's no shape -- secretive and quiet. there's no shame in getting
4:12 pm
fact that she's not open about what's happening. >> what should the hillary clinton be doing right now? there's a health issue and a transparency issue. >> i slightly disagree. the clinton campaign probably was worried about their candidate before worrying about the press and anything like that. they want to make sure she's okay. >> if you have the press -- >> it took 90 minutes. >> apparently she had gone to a doctor on friday. >> right. it was a initially. >> yes. the fact remains she saw a doctor on friday. she's suffering this illness and they can't even be honest about it. >> do you think the whole story would have been better for her if they came out and said as soon as they got the pneumonia diagnosis? >> be it something as craven as saying she's got a secret medical illness that she's
4:13 pm
equipment in her pant legs. i mean at this point the right wing seems hell bent on doing absolutely anything they can that the focus is no longer on their candidate who every time he opens his mouth says something to offend a group of people. >> it's clear that you are trying to point to the far like conspiracy theories just to try to distract from the fact that the hillary clinton campaign handled this beginning to all of these conspiracy theories and actually given oxygen to these arguments because they couldn't just be open and honest and say hey, she saw a doctor on friday and oh, hey, she's suffering because of the schedule. >> speaking of open and honest, at this point every single presidential candidate of the major parties since richard nixon had released their tax returns by now. what are trump's? >> that's a super great
4:14 pm
>> earlier today on cnbc donald trump called senator warren pocahontas. i'm curious to know do you think a statement like that gets overblown because of the news cycle or because donald trump has a different bar than hillary clinton does in this campaign? >> look, senator warren has some issues regarding her past and the way that she got into school and i think that those to be talked about. i wish that they were talked about in a less inflammatory way by our presidential candidate, but yeah. i mean look, donald trump is the guy who is loud and he is frankly not pc and sometimes offensive. >> really quick if you want to get in, we got to go. >> i would go pay past not pc to being offensive to every single group of voters except
4:15 pm
time. >> you were in the middle of the wwe match. you did a good job. >> they could do this all day. >> they're so nice to each other. we know they appreciate each other in many ways, different points of view. that's what makes the world go around. thank you. leaders of the navajo nation are talking to the government about establishing an emergency alert system across the 27,000 square mile reservation. this comes after the disappearance ashland mike and her 9-year-old brother in may. the little girl was found dead. at the time law enforcement said they needed to improve how they respond to child abduction on the vast reservation. they are working on a public alert and warning system specifically for tribal land. this program was created in response to hurricane katrina. denver mayor michael hancock released a $1.3 billion budget proposal for 2017 earlier this morning.

health and helping others or yourself. the number to call 303-698- 0999. lines are open until 5:30 tonight. >> we're so happy that bev marquez could join us again from rocky mountain crisis partners. one of the hardest things about this is mental health awareness and knowing where to get help. we just talked about this, suicide prevention. sometimes people say do you want to talk about that? actually you do want to talk about that. >> yeah. >> you do. might say the wrong thing or we might make it worse and what individuals that are suffering this will say is what's scary is not being able to talk about it with not knowing what to do about it and some of the thoughts and behaviors that they're having are more scary to them than somebody being able to talk to them about it and know what to do if, in fact, it is a concern. >> we talked about september.
4:28 pm
prevention month. >> it's an opportunity to pay really close attention to transition. transition can be really stressful and what we know about this time of year is that things change for families. kids are going back to school. young freshmen are entering universities. the first six weeks that somebody is in a major transition like that, maybe they're feeling less connected from home or those kinds of things, we want to really talk about taking care of themselves and things that they can do to establish and maintain that connection feel isolated in new territory and so a lot of transition happens in september. so it's a good month to commit to learning more about what are the signs, what are the resources and how to respond if we do get concerned about somebody. >> we want to ask you about the signs, but when you talk about young people, there's an easy way to detect. sometimes they don't actual -- to text.
4:29 pm
option. >> we've recently added a text option. that's the way kids are staying connected and communicating. anonymous. so -- it's anonymous. so they it text the word talk to 38255 24/7 and they can text to somebody in a modality that they're familiar with and comfortable. >> a lot of people don't know how to start that conversation. do you prid well? >> we absolutely do. 30% of the people that call are calling about somebody they're concerned about and i think that is one of the best ways that we can prevent suicide is to really know how to talk about it and even if we don't know exactly how to talk about, there's really not a wrong way, just to do it more often. >> when you talk about some of these symptoms, is it just like stepping away or what are some of the signs?
4:30 pm
great deal of emotional pain and they don't see any relief? it affects the way they sleep. it might affect their nutrition. they might pull away from people or activities they care about. they might increase use of drugs or alcohol. they may be talking about really wanting to be away from this pain and withdrawing and maybe taking care of unfinished business consistent difference, a pattern or certainly after there's been a very upsetting or traumatic event in somebody's life, that would be a good time to pay attention to talking about this and also at higher risk if they do have a mental health diagnosis that's not treated, using substances or recently somebody in their circle has died by suicide. >> okay. >> that's a lot to pay attention to and no call is foolish.
4:31 pm

three years ago this is what colorado looked like. this is video from boulder county, 17 inches of rain fell over the course of several days. boulder's average precipitation for the entire year is 20 inches. the floodwaters spread across a 200-mile range affecting 17 counties. governor hickenlooper declared a disaster emergency in 14 counties. there were nearly 2,000 rescues during a week and nearly 19,000 homes were damaged.
4:35 pm

4:36 pm
area. in the high country temperatures got into the 60s and 70s in the western slope, 83 degrees. right now we're at 69 degrees at dia where the winds are at 14 miles per hour. clouds have increased, certainly out here in the backyard we're under more clouds, not as sunny as it was this afternoon when i did the midday show and we had a few sprinkles. now we have partly cloudy skies and temperatures are at 71 degrees in the backyard. let's check the weather across the state us where you're at, the weather will be different for you. on the western slope we've got 82 degrees. we've got 70s in steamboat springs with sunshine, more clouds near the san luis valley and near monument hill. on the eastern plains blue skies and sunshine with 70s. zoom in closer and we have more cloud around town, temperatures currently -- clouds around town, temperatures currently in the 60s running about 20 degrees cooler from just 24 hours ago with some showers around town, some of them

4:38 pm
elbert county. the threat of any severe weather today in colorado is pretty low, but where that cold front is stationed now that's the line and an area that we could see stronger storms. the potential for some showers and storms will remain in the forecast through this evening. right now mix of clouds and sun, more clouds headed our direct overnight and through tomorrow morning as our winds shift and they become more easterly. so what that does, it helps that humidity just bank up against the foothis higher terrain that's called upslope. that will cause for the clouds to stick around even through tomorrow creating areas of fog. 45 will be your overnight low, so not quite freezing but a cool john compared to this morning with a chance -- cooldown compared to this
4:39 pm
won't see is going to be because of areas of fog. also drizzle a possibility with mostly cloudy skies, especially here on the front range. poat will be very shallow, the temperatures will also tonight. there's a round of showers through tomorrow morning. watch all those clouds, also a possibility for some drizzle. in the afternoon maybe a break from the clouds, then another round of storms pushes through possibly by that afternoon pollute. plan ahead for that. tuesday really is going to be a bit of a different forecast. 66 will be your high with mostly cloudy skies. early in the morning 48 degrees, good advice for kids to take a jacket to school, maybe a sweater.
4:40 pm
you that kind of cautionary yellow light, chance of storms around town, 66. highs across the state tuesday 60s in the lower elevations and eastern plains, same goes for the mountains and 80s for the western slope. after tomorrow we start to warm up, 70s in the forecast for wednesday and we keep a chance for storms every afternoon through the weekend. so yesterday was the hottest day of the week, tomorrow the coolest and then we kind of find middle ground the rest of the week. >> okay. >> i can deal wi too bad. >> makes me think of goldilocks, porridge is too hot, too cold. >> okay, all right. for most people a job is a steady source of income. it also provides a sense of dignity and purpose. >> 9news reporter tarhonda thomas and her photojournalist show us people who are earning a living while they also learn to live again. >> i enjoy being here. >> reporter: a second chance is an opportunity to make

4:53 pm
slime before, you've never seen slime like this. i promise you you've never seen the application for slime where you're going to go that was school. here's basically how you make slime. the recipe is all over the place. we've done it on many times. it's a management of elmer's glue and i add water and add the secret ingredient is this stuff right here called borax. if you buy a box of borax, it's good for life. put some bo stir it around and this borax water is what you now add to the glue. when you mix around and everything, becky, reach in and grab it out, there it is. is that the greatest? >> oh, feels so, so lovely. >> that is slime, so it's perfect. i have a slime that's a little bit different. watch this. >> okay. >> this one has been colored like this. >> black. >> let me pull this out here so you can kind of see. so this 1 looks a little
