grandkids and maybe later hit a rockies game, all thanks toe a good night's sleep. it takes about a month before they actually activate and calibrate that inspire device. day an will turn it on at night with a handheld remote and turn it off in the morning. >> that is really pretty amazing. let's check in with meteorologist dave aguilera. we're on storm watch. we know those storm crews in larimer could use that moisture. >> there's not much in the way of moisture unfortunately. kind of just a few gusty storms to the northeast and down to the southeast but not a lot of green. green would be good because we need the rain. in denver we had some gusty storms move through, a lot of wind, a few sprinkles of rain and some lightning. that's it. what is making it to the ground are these fast moving storms that just came through the greeley area. also up at altitude there is a strong jest that is kicking these along.
5:19 pm
the greeley area. there's a lot of wind sheer showing up. you see those arrows that are swirling. there might be a little turn in some of the clouds up there. we're watching that one carefully. no tornadoes reported yet but hail is really like well some of these storms. severe thunderstorm warning for this one going through phillips and sedgwick county until 5:30. we've already seen house windows broken out with the hail near julesburg as they have golf ball size golf ball size hail in holyoke and al vicinity. that's not it. in fort morgan they have had over half inch diameter hail. golf ball size hail in kimble, idalia as well picking up big hailstones. denver is not included in the severe thunderstorm watch. we will probably just see the wind kicking up.
5:20 pm
today. 87 downtown. another day of above-normal temperatures. 82 out there now. the wind is kicking up. it is out of the southwest at 25. but we have seen gusts up over 35 miles per hour out of some of these storms. jim bruce up in risk canyon had over a quarter of an inch of rain. larry in brush got almost three- quarters of an inch of rain from those storms yesterday. tomorrow morning we will clear out, mostly sunny. by after the southeast but almost the entire state will be high and dry. so a very dry and sunny labor day for a lot of folks tomorrow. there is a slight chance we could see some severe thunderstorms here in the extreme northeast corner of the state. now for tonight, we could have some gusty storms early. partly cloudy otherwise and breezy. we will be in the 50s for the overnight low. your labor day forecast, breezy at times. we will be near 90 again tomorrow. a hot holiday weekend still going on. as we look ahead, we cool off a
5:21 pm
and wednesday, maybe some isolated storms tuesday, then thursday and friday we keep it in the 80s. but overall, with the exception of some of these storms that are here and there a drying trend for a lot of folks over the next several days. >> we have the broncos at home on thursday. >> i think it will be a good night. temperatures not too bad. no storms in the forecast. >> it will be good. >> thank you dave. coming up in sports, speaking of the broncos they're now preparing for a familiar foe. >> coach gary kubiak talks >> coach gary kubiak talks about the su , don't. i'll just tell you: clean, renewable energy. cool, right? fact is, xcel energy is the nation's number one provider of wind energy, and has been for over a decade. whoa! that's wind for ya. ? wind, wind, wind, wiiind. ? when it comes to clean energy, we're always delivering. xcel energy.
5:22 pm
5:23 pm
5:24 pm
eric joins us with sports. seems like just yesterday the broncos were winning the super bowl. now it is time to defend. >> the last month has been full of meaningless football. any coach will tell you that. but not any more. leave it to wade phillips to sum what broncos country is thinking. it's time. time for the broncos to defend their super bowl championship. it is time for trevor siemian to take his first meaningful snaps in the nfl.
5:25 pm
offensive line to run the ball the way gary kubiak wants to. it is time for the defense to pressure the quarterback and stop the run and create those timely turnovers and score every once in awhile. it is time to start the 2016 season against the same team the broncos beat in the super bowl. it is time for the rematch. >> you let all that go. it is a new team, a new year, a new season. we're studying what they've done this year. i'm sure they're doing the same thing. we've got to this time around. we don't talk about that at all to be honest. >> extra be trigger shy playing quarterback. especially with our group. the players we have. so i have a good opportunity to get those guys involved with ct or emanuel, whoever it is. >> touchdown denver!
5:26 pm
on our shoulder each year. the fact that we are the dog, or that everybody is counting us out already, that's going to add more fall to the fire. >> vegas has the broncos at three and a half point underdogs against carolina. so the wise guys have their concerns. but what about you? what concerns you most about the 2016 broncos? tweet mark or i, and we will show the best on "autonation all access" tonight. nothing concerns the pitching to the tune of over seven runs a game. they upped their average today against jon gray. it started off as a rare pitching duel in the 4th. tony wolters is going to single home nolan arenado. and that gives the rockies a 2- 1 lead. the game stayed that way until the 7th. sock extra teeth breito matches a jon gray fastball.
5:27 pm
arizona scored four. in the 8th, brandon drury adds on as arizona feasts on rockies pitching again, the final 8-4. with the playoffs looking more and more like a pipe dream that doesn't mean the rockies haven't improved this season. they have, thanks to a core of young players who have hit the ground running in the big leagues. no one more so than rookie outfielder david dahl. >> the pitch is hit to the right side and threw for hit. david dahl's 17th in a row. >> do you realize when you're going through that, hey, man, i'm making history right now? >> you're going back to a record that is 75 years old. >> i really didn't think a lot about it. i saw it on twitter a lot, people talking about it, but i didn't think much about it except for like the last game where i had a chance to break the record. and so then i was in the box. i wanted to get a hit, so i swung at like every pitch.
5:28 pm
chance to break it. never would have thought i would start out like that, but pretty awesome. >> is it hard for you to believe that you've been in the major leagues less than two months? >> it's pretty crazy just to think a little over a month ago i was still in the minor leagues, especially like even less than two months ago i was in aa on like a long road trip. it's still pretty crazy. >> tonight's centurylink poll question asks, which rockies rookie do you like david dahl, jon gray, tyler anderson or trevor story? tough decision. you can vet at third round of the deutsche bank championship today, and rory mcilroy finally put it all together. this is his approach on the 18th from 210 yards away. almost jars it for a double eagle. rory shot a 66 in his nine under par, six shots behind the leader, paul kasey, the english man a model of consistency.
5:29 pm
finally, at the u.s. open, a lob shot here with a purpose. to give himself time to tie his shoe. i've never seen that. obviously he needed a little bit more air time, or maybe he needed some velcro instead of laces. i've never seen a tennis player do that before. did he win the match and he is on to the semi finals. >> very casual. getting back to the broncos, they're three and a half point underdogs at home? >> at home to panthers. i think it's all because of the quarterback situation. some time to make a statement. >> no one nationally thinks that trevor siemian is going to get it done. >> they're going to make us believers thursday. a fast moving wildfire is burning in larimer county. about 200 acres burned so far. homeowners in the mill creek subdivision have been told to evacuate. we will have an update. also, the tiny nunn who
