6:12 am
there from denver medical center. hey, you can see the pavement for a change. dia says the flights are getting back to normal. so far dia has not announced any delays or cancellations today. of course that could change, so it's always wise to call your airlines and check your status. they will still go hrough de- icing because it's cold. >> reporter: even compared to yesterday when the snow was coming down. i'm not going to say it felt warm, but compared to today it did not feel bad. we are deaaing with single digits pretty much across the entire front rrnge and even across the eastern plains. temperatures there below zero. no matter where you are across the state you are going to want to bundle up because you are going to feel the weather. the warmup is going to be slow
6:13 am
today ann it's not going to be topping out at 27-degrees, that's what we're going to see here in the denver area and then things are going to plummet from there. we will be back into the teens yet again late this evening and back into the single digits however what you are going to see the temperatures as far as our highs are going to be in the upper 20s. a few metro areas arr going to be in theelow 30s. high country, single digits for ledville and gunnison, you are just not going to be able to valleys out. eagle 23, steamboat only 11- degrees. we will see some snow up in the northwest corner of the state this morning. this afternoon, the southwest could pick up some. what we are dealing with today will be very light. basically no accumulation.
6:14 am

6:15 am

6:16 am
neighborhood roads pretty tough. here at 96 and wadsworth, pretty dry, but transitioning from the side stteet and onto the tramps, you have to be careful. we are just about four days from the super bowl. and if you are still hoping to get to the game, fresh jets is offering a deal. $2,999 for roundtrip, transportation around the bay area and no tickets to the game. >> you doohave to be a fresh jets member. but the best part is, that doesn't cost you anything. 6:18. now and if you are seriously considering a deal, you need the get tickets clearly.

6:20 am
6:21 am
6:22 am
it is 6:24. single digits and very cold weather with winds at 8 miles per hour. 27-degrees is the high here in denver this afternoon. yes, we are going to have to sunshine, which is going to make a big difference, but it is still going to be cold. in the high country, we are looking for a chance of a little bit of light snow. denver will top out in the upper 20s, but therr will be areas in the 30s. yes, we will see some melting, not because of the temperatures, but because of the sunshine. let's check in with jayson. >> reporter: this is on the northbound side of 225 because of a crash. one of the vehicll is leaving. we still have activity on the
6:23 am
on the northbound side of i-22 passing alameda, but here you can see the stop and gootraffic here on southbound side of 225. about 25 minutes already into downtown denver. so the ground hog didn't see his shadow,. >> and now you can pass it over to this ground hog who went right into the heart of broncos country and picked thh broncos. we are live in san francisco super bowl city. we have two bits of advice this morning as well. bundle up, leave early, it is cold out there, so that means that the snow is getting
6:24 am
>> you with 40 megs of internet speed from centurylink, a family of four can all be online at the same time, streaming, gaming, or downloading movies. yeah, the internet's great, but i think hair and makeup went a little too far. yeah, that's not working. i much prefer the two-day beard, horn-rimmed glasses, just-slept-in-his-car kinda thing.
6:25 am
yeah, i miss the rumpled crazy uncle look. okay. be "paul giamatti." that's the essence of this role. feel like a hollywood insider
6:26 am
. denver 7 news starts right now. >> yeah, the countdown is on to shoveling. you have 24 hours to clear sidewalks outside your home. this is a time lapse of major king shoveling in ft. collins. if you are shoveling, now you need to get out of your driveway. >> the side streets are pretty rough this morning. jayson gruenauer here in denver. you may be better off with some ice skates this morning, jayson. >> reporter: yeah, you mentioned the ice skates, you can see it's really easy to walk here and get around but
6:27 am
streets and deal with all the leet over snow and yeah, ice skates would probably be a good idea because there's probably an inch of ice where it's half residential and half industrial a half a block off of industrial here. now the county plows did come out and clear it away once yesterday, but there's some snow pack as you see a couple of cars driving by. it is easier to stop and drive as you go through, but under all of that is all of this. so that's what you're going to have to deal with especially on the residential side street. they don't get salted, they don't get the mag chloride like the highways do as cdot was out all day yesterday to make sure the that highways are good.
6:28 am
so those are good, but make sure you take extra time through your neighborhood. dayle, it's cold out here, is it's going to warm up? >> reporter: we are going to see temperatures climb, but i want to take you out tt akron. you can see the gorgeous sunrise there and of course with all the snow on the roadways, the lights shining off with the orange and pink. look at the radar, it's nice and quiet. we are going to see very light snow, not a lot of accumulation today. it is 9-degrees in denver, only two in greeley, so single digits across a good portion of the state. it is not a warm start to the day and even this afternoon it not going to be very warm at all. topping out in the upper 20s, a few spots into the low 30s. the sunshine will make a difference, though. jayson.
6:29 am
dry us out, which is really welcome news. we froze over night and we do still have om icy spots. you can still see the flashing lights northbound i-225. they are encroaching on the left lane all the way back to nearly iliff here. let me show you the travel times out that way. it's going to cost you at least 20 minutes from that backup. there's also another one out near iliff. side street problems also. we are going to see a lot of those transitioning from the major roads to the side street also. 20 minutes intt town down. and air tracker is going to be here at quebec and c-470 a possible building fire. so i'll have more information on that in a few minutes.
6:30 am

6:32 am
me a funny look. >> reporter: hey, lis? >> yeah,. >> reporter: i love this hoddie you got me. >> he's not wearing a t-shirt underneath that. can you believe that? he's not wearing a t-shirt under it. >> reporter: don't tell people that. i don't like people knowing that. >> honey, put on your under shirt. eat your breakfast and take a shower. thanks, lisa. thanks to both of them. so, for a full week experience, where else are you going to
6:33 am
also don't forget to like lisa and eric on facebook. this man was killed when he was headed to see his wife give birth to their second son. he lost control on the ice and drifted into on coming traffic on u.s. 85 right near the wyoming border. it happened just 30 minutes before the baby was born. a man accused of killing a father riding his bike. he pled guilty to vehicular homicide in the death of thomas flanagan last august. the sentencing will be next month. if you can leave a little bit early this morning, try to do so. frozen over.
