next week -- i don't want to get too far ahead of myself. we'll talk about that in just a minute. currently as we look outside we've got partly cloudy skies, high clouds sitting over the city, not a lot of wind, so yes, low 40s, cold today but not bad considering the wind was calm. 41 was the official high at the airport. our average high is 45. we're nowhere close to setting. 1973 it was set at 73 degrees. as we get into tomorrow, the high temperatures will look :( much like what we see now, 37 in denver now, 38 around greeley, 40 in fort collins. eastern plains is in the upper 30s and low 40s. 20s and 40s for current temperatures in the mountains and upper 30s across the western slope. here outside of the 9news backyard mostly clear skies, temperatures at 37.
that will about be our high going into tomorrow. we are watching a storm system ready to push into colorado. right now we've got winter weather advisories where most of the snow lies across parts of idaho and montana. that storm system off to our east almost done. that is going to continue to push out. you can see we've got some snow just now exiting maine and it's going to continue to move out over the next 24 hours, but ?hq% those advisories come with a storm system that doesn't carry witha
our mountains, but also in denver. tomorrow to our west we may center isolated showers in our foothills. as we go through the day, that area of snow becomes much more scattered, sp doesn't quite cross east of i- 25, at least not in the denver metro area ?u1@by noon. by 2:00 we'll have a chance of snow around here. it will be very light and very brief, an inch or less is all we anticipate in denver area, emphasis on the less. it's not going to be a lot of snow for denver, fort collins or greeley, not a lot of snow for locations near the palmer divide and castle rock. places that see snow more of the day starting in the morning through our foothills lasting into the afternoon, those locations from estes park down to evergreen possibly seeing 1 to 3 inches of new snow and some isolated pockets in our northern and central mountains could get 2 to 4 inches of accumulation.
overnight tonight we drop to 17 in the city, 15 greeley, 19 for fort collins. eastern plains will see lows in the teens, single digits and teens for the mountains and across the western slope we drop to take low of 20. winds not bad tonight, 17, bundle up if you're headed outside. we'll be mostly cloudy, but winds out of the east at 5 to 10 miles per hour. that's light, not worried about that. 34 is our high tomorrow. we'll have some light afternoon likely less for most of us here across the front range will fall. and that's by tomorrow night. winds will be out of the east at 5 to 10 miles per hour for tomorrow. if you are headed out to join us for the parade of lights, it may actually be beautiful. in fact, the picture should be perfect with a couple of flurries at 7 p.m. we'll be at 28 degrees, light winds, mostly cloudy at 8:00 25

they expect for the game, lows in the evening, a little bit chilly. we are out here in santa clara, can., california, lee -- california, levi's stadium. this is where cu plays tomorrow night for a championship game. >> reporter: we kn?)ow the territory. now cu takes on washington tomorrow. it is a very big game, pac 12 championsh. washington comes in much like qq excuse me, cu as an st like the washington is favored to win the game, much like that super bowl game. it is the no. 1 offense in the conference in washington against the no. 1 defense in the conference in colorado. so it should be a fantastic game. many people think that a win for the buffaloes would put them in the rose bowl on january 2nd which would be obviously terrific, be the first time they'd have a chance to play there.
of the fans about sort of the calculations with where cu will end up depending on what happens tomorrow. we saw some fans leaving today at dia flying out here with their kids. you guys were getting into it with all the different possibilities that could than, thousands of fans come out here -- could happen, thousands of fans coming out here. the cu unit out of cu boulder rented a van, will av night rotating shifts. we're hoping to catch up with takes to come out here to a pac- 12 championship game and support the home team in california. we saw how broncos fans turned out in huge numbers during the super bowl out here. we'll see what happens with cu fans. we've already seen some of the journalists out here. they're not nearly as snappy as we are. if that's any indication of their team, it's going to be a blowout. >> reporter: it's quite a drive from you know that personally. >> reporter: last
