delegates to the result tonight, the state gop canceled adding up a result tonight, but on the democratic side we are one of the states where bernie sanders thinks he has a real shot at beating hillary clinton. after her big shot in south carolina he has to show signs of life today and frankly, colorado isn't enough on its own, but we could help his cause. likewise if hillary clinton wins tonight, it's a good sign she's beaten back the bernie sanders insurgency in an important swing state. right now this is data shared only with us from facebook and it shows all of the interactions over the past month by colorado users of facebook. so this is likes, mentions, all that stuff aggregated over the course of the month and it's some measure at least what the conversation is showing us in colorado. what you can see here is that hillary clinton and bernie sanders are relatively close by this metric. both of them in the 2 million, the low 2 million range. donald trump not surprisingly blowing everyone out of the
interactions on facebook in colorado. the 1 thing you can say about the people at the top is some of that is most likely negative interactions as well as supporters. so there's no way to screen for, that but it is showing you where the buzz is and then ted cruz being second in colorado with a little less than 1 million. if you go further down, you have marco rubio in the 300,000 range, so a lot less buzz around the establishment k.s colorado. this still does matter because what's going to happen is republicans will meet in small county conventions. that leads to delegates to the state convention and the opinions they have in the presidential race will matter. so at least we have some sort of metric of the buzz that's going on here. if you don't understand what's going on tonight in the caucuses, we do have some help for you there as well. if you go to 9news.com right now, on the homepage you will see rotating in this main
explains colorado's caucuses. 35% of coloradans can't participate in this process because they are not affiliated with a major political party. so it is a relatively small affair. even then you have a little more than 10% of the people that are registered democrat or republican that will take part. at 9:00 and 10:00 we'll have the results from colorado and the other super tuesday states that are voting tonight. >>. our independence that makes things interesting down the road. clinton and sanders campaign volunteers went door to door encouraging as many registered democrats as they could find to vote in tonight's caucuses. the last minute push reminded people of super tuesday and letting them know where their caucus location is. it's not always easy since lots of voters give excuses about why they can't participate in the time consuming caucuses, but the volunteers did everything they could to boost the numbers for their candidate. >> by knocking on doors, reminding people, leaving them flyers.
>> we've reached thousands of people in the last few months. so the grassroots support here has been really strong. >> out of the roughly 900,000 registered democrats in colorado only about 100,000 are expected to caucus tonight. got pretty good weather to go door to door. parts of colorado are looking at increased fire danger, though, with warm and windy conditions out there across our state. meteorologist belen deleon is in the weather center and the red flag warnings are starting to get closer and closer to the metro area. >> that's right. in fact, it's encompassing the metro area tomorrow. we step outside now, you'll notice the winds aren't all this active. we're taking a break from the stronger winds for today. let's take you to the graphics. you'll see the wind mainly in the foothills are gusting up to 20 and 30 miles per hour, but into tomorrow about 24 hours away from now is when we'll see those winds gusting up to 30 and even 40 miles per hour here in the metro area and with that
wonder that we'll be under a red flag warning for most of eastern colorado starting at 11 a.m. tomorrow. right now look outside. those flags on our flagpole aren't even moving. in fact, we got that mix of clouds and sun. so if you want to maybe step outside your door, burn some calories, walk the dog, we've got some great weather. temperatures now are in the 50s. in the foothills 40s and 50s. we take you throughout the rest of the evening. we'll have clouds increasing, but yough of you won't have any rain or snow -- but you won't have any rain or snow. it's going to be a dry forecast approaching tonight and tomorrow we'll see increased fire danger. here's the weather headlines. winds will increase tomorrow, the red flag warning going into effect and we'll continue to see the warm stretch all the way through the weekend. now mark and kim, i know you'll have a few more -- not a few, lots of time on your hands, mark, after these next few days.
you have any shoveling in your forecast. >> gee whiz. >> you're not going to worry about that. you'll be on the hills or somewhere. >> i was thinking less shoveling, more swishing. >> sit there and have another cup of coffee before he can get motivated to do anything. thank you. it was a matter of time, the state health department confirmed two zika cases have been reported in colorado. both cases were reported last week. the health department says the people infected recently came back from a country affected by zika. the state would not say where they live or where they were treated. experts say the discovery of zika virus in colorado shouldn't really scare us because the virus was not transmitted in our state. this certainly isn't mosquito season just yet. however, 9news medical expert dr. john torres says we can expect to see additional indications very soon. >> one of the things you have to remember is they got zika somewhere else and came to colorado, but them coming to
warming up and the mosquitoes move into the area, those mosquitoes could get zika from somebody who has it and then transmit it to other people. >> zika can cause feverlike symptoms and doctors suspect it is linked to several birth defects. a man is recovering after being hit by a vehicle late last night in fort collins. the man was lying in the southbound lanes of college avenue near spring park drive. officers found 53-year-old george trailer in the roadway. his injuries were consistent with being hit by a vehicle. police do not have a vehicle description. anyone with information is asked to call fort collins police department. a fire on a stovetop caused a mobile home fire near i-225 and colfax this morning. the home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. the owner wasn't home at the time no. other homes in the area were damaged. a lot of people will like this. rain barrels closer to being legal in colorado thanks to the colorado house of
bill today that would allow coloradans to use up to two 50- gallon barrels to collect rainwater from home rooftops to be used outdoor for things like gardening. right now colorado law bans things that keep water from flowing to or off your property. one of the bills asks the state impact the impact of water rights. the measure heads now to the senate. today is traditionally the snowiest month of the year in colorado of believe it, folks. some long term forecasts show it could be a very snowy march or april. that's why one of us is doing
koebrich. 9news mountain newsroom reporter matt renoux. >> reporter: it was definitely a welcome sight to see. there's still a lot of snow on the ground, but after all that warm weather, that snow is starting to melt in a lot of places pretty quickly. so we could use a lot more snow. ski areas around summit county with an inch or 2 this morning is pretty nice. the state snowpack is right about average right now, but weather watcher rick bly said it's only because november and december brought so much snow. in fact, he says the last big snow event around summit county was back in early february. without that we'd be well behind the curve for snowfall. so more snow is needed because three weeks of warm dry weather is melting that snowpack quickly. >> we had a really good snow base to start the season with, but the wind and the last three weeks of sun have taken a toll on the snow. it's been so warm we've been losing a lot of snow daily.
predictions out there with el nino that we'll see a better than average winter as far as april and march go. so the coming months already snowy could see a lot more snow, but, kim, saying that after getting a little bit of snow this morning. it's warm, windy again and we're seeing maybe an early preview of mud season. >> oh, yeah. plenty of that. there's not enough. once it gets on your shoes you got to wait for it to dry out and messy. your cars are always messy. >> reporter: yeah. that's why our 9news rig right over there sitting dry outside of that mud, a little bit of a snow patch over there. >> good for you, good choices. no heavy jacket yet, i know. you guys need a little more snow, matt. mark is over here waiting. he's ready to go. >> wax them up. i'll see you shortly. >> reporter: he's going to have time and, mark, given that you're going to have a little
reports from just about every ski area in colorado here coming up. >> yeah. you guys should meet up and do some little check-ins at 4:00. it's a plan. thank you, matt. >> reporter: i like that idea. the super bowl mvp is staying in denver at least one more year. the broncos have placed an exclusive franchise tag on linebacker von miller. the exclusive franchise tag means that he can't receive competing offers from other teams. miller wanted a multi-year contract with the broncos, but the organization just couldn't come to an agreement. there is still time. the broncos have until the 15th of july to figure out a longer term deal. miller is the first player since new orleans quarterback the highest form of franchise tag and the first england's richard seymour back in 2007. he's a special guy. deal. >> oh, yeah. i can't imagine they don't.

this still the best information we have right now is transmission like that isn't possible. we have a full report on the topic coming up on 9news at 6:30. that's because nbc nightly news is one hour tonight on super tuesday. the legal fight between apple and the justice department is now heading to congress. the hearing comes after two significant and conflicting court rulings in new york and california on whether apple can be forced to help the fbi gain access to locked phones. fbi director james comey continues to say technological advancements come with new dangers which can prevent law enforcement from collecting critical evidence in criminal and terrorist investigations. security experts say the fbi asking apple to weaken security of its products could create a dangerous precedent. it is a homecoming that's been a year in the making. astronaut scott kelly is back to earth after almost a full year in space, a record for an american astronaut. kelly has been in space 340
earth and nearly 11,000 sunsets and sunrises all sheryled on instagram and -- all sheryled on instagram and -- all shared on instagram and twitter. he does have a twin and they're part of this project. >> they had an opportunity they've never had before. my brother and i are the only siblings that have ever flown in space and the fact that we're twins gave them this unique opportunity to do some pretty substantial science. >> find out what's changed and when kelly arrives back in the u.s., he'll get a very thorough medical exam. researchers say the absence of gravity means that your bones become more brittle and vision sometimes shifts towards far sightedness. kelly says he has already experienced that, so say lot to learn. >> -- so a lot to learn. >> that's remarkable. i can't wait to see the results. a kindergarten class in fire stone has taken a new approach to learning.
the day and that's the case for kristen baker's class at imagine charter school, so mrs. bake are and a parent -- baker and a parent started a standing desk pilot program. the desks donated by the manufacturer accommodate five students. students take turns using the desks every day and can move around and mrs. baker has noticed a big difference in how the kids are learning. >> some of my students who were unable to focus sitting down focus so much better standing up. they can wiggle more and move more and not interrupt anybody else and while they're doing that they're more able to listen. i find that kids are able to be a little bit more creative just because blood is flowing. their brain juices are going more just because they're standing as opposed to sitting. >> the thing i like about it is you get to stand up because it's boring just sitting. >> it's boring just sitting. kids love it because they not only get to release a lot of energy, but they get to work
they can move closer and everyone can huddle up. baker who is also a pilates instructor is excited about the many health benefits associated with standing as opposed to sitting. she's now trying to raise about $12,000 through a gofundme project to get them in other classrooms as well, great idea. >> nice. neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night can keep our mark koebrich from delivering his consumer report stories and when it comes to that popular segment on 9news, he's actually even more dependable than the postal service, but hidden in the consumer report's vault is a story that he has never ever seen because it wasn't that long ago that consumer reports decided it was time to test mark. >> what? >> reporter: nicole watches 18 hours of local news a day. >> i only wish they offered more news. >> reporter: it all makes her feel alone, scared, petrified. >> i feel alone, scared and petrified.

>> win erwiner chicken dinner -- winner winner chicken dinner. >> reporter: while all four tested well on durability, the kyle sense of sarcasm and ability to drink craft beer, made him a hit with the hipster crowd. the adele scored high on integrity but low on low driving techniques. much like batteries or diapers, anchors should occasionally be changed, but none will withstand the test of father time quite like the mark. >> isn't he the senior source guy? >> reporter: the most trusted, boulevard and ageless guy in local tv news -- beloved and ageless guy in local tv news today. >> when the world is going to hell i want him to be my guide. >> reporter: on the consumer beat chris vanderveen, 9news. >> our friends at 9wants to know apparently took the day

the medicines on board to stop allergic reactions is much more effective than trying to deal with allergic reactions once they're happening. >> dr. dreskin says antihistamine allergy medicines only stop something from happening. they don't reverse the symptoms. that's why it's really important, as they tell you, get ahead of the allergy. start the medications if your allergies are a seasonal problem. in today's bottom line report you're watching your waistline, paying attention to what you eat. so what could possibly be wrong with your diet? well, the answer is plenty. as gregg moss reports, there are advertising myths that can actually fool us into thinking we're making healthy choices when, in fact, we are really not. >> reporter: the label says healthy, but is it really healthy? don't fall for these five advertising myths as nutritionist andy boloti, myth no.

they were getting in trouble with the law. this is in grand lake. thank you so much, carol, for sending that in, but yup, beautiful weather. even the animals are out frolicking around. it is march. it's march. how did that happen? you know, march is usually our snowiest month on average when we see about 11 or so inches of snowfall. the average temperatures start to go up, so the average high is around 52 degrees and spring officially starts on march 20th. now the temperatures right now are 53 at dia, winds not all that bad out here in the backyard our temperatures at 54 degrees and today was just beautiful. the wind have left, but tomorrow those winds will pick up and we'll start to see the threat for wildfires across the state of temperatures right now are in the 50s in lower elevations and out on the eastern plains. high country has 50s and 30s and the western slope has 59 degrees in grand junction. now the rest of the afternoon
mix of clouds and sun, the clouds thickening a bit more around 6:00 and 7 shot clock, but it's still going to be -- 7:00, but it's still going to be a very for us. 37 degrees your low, partly cloudy skies and the winds picking up in the foothills. the jet stream now is going over the western half of the to warm up. tomorrow we'll have this jet colorado. so those stronger winds aloft will be mixing into lower elevations and that's the reason why we'll start to see those stronger winds out here in colorado. the wind gust forecast that takes us through this evening, tonight those winds in the foothills up to 50 miles per hour and then tomorrow morning and afternoon those winds really pick up coming in from the northwest. they could be gusting up to 30, 40 miles per hour and even 50 miles per hour at times. that's the reason why we're going to have that red flag warning that goes into effect
towards the eastern plains, humidity so low dropping to about 14%. now that same jet stream that will bring us those stronger winds here on the front range and that red flag warning will also bring a small chance for some light snow showers in our northern mountains. so let's take you through this futurecast. through tonight you'll see the clouds spread onto the front range and eastern plains but still staying dry, partly cloudy tonight into tomorrow morning. there you see the light snow that develops in our northern and central mountains. we could even see a bit of moisture out towards the eastern plains, some very light rain certainly not out of the question as this very weak kind of system just tries to make its way over colorado. 65 will be your high for tomorrow. it will be a bit warmer, but the thing we have to watch out for will be those stronger winds. that planning forecast keeps us warm, dry through the weekend. tomorrow is when those winds will be the most active. then those winds relax a tad by thursday and friday, but let's just focus on the weekend now, shall we?
those winds return and still a bit breezy on sunday where the temperatures will be at 68 degrees, still a dry weekend. let's look past that. it's not until next week when we start to see a clung in the weather pattern. -- change in the weather pattern. that high pressure ridge in the western parts of the country starts to break down and more moisture starts to move into the state. the start of next week could bring a chance of showers on the front range and snow into the high country. by then, mark, long gone on the slopes. >> that's what i'm hoping. they all say they need a little bit of snow of once i get up there i'll be giving your hour by hour reports. >> that's great. you're going to be our good luck charm in the high country. >> if there's snow on mark, it must be a storm up in the high country, right? thanks, belen. >> sure thing. as we rediscover colorado's national parks all this week, we are taking you to new places, hidden spots of beauty and history. >> there's another way to rediscover our parks by returning to your favorite
