the two events combined sounds intriguing to me. absolutely. how did you guys spend your weekend? cloudy, windy, but not too bad for outdoor activities. did you go hike like these guys in boulder? it is such a pretty view. we will add to the snow pack as early as tomorrow. snow coming in at the continental divide. so warm here. the average is 51. the record, 76. we are headed into record territory tomorrow, but i don't think we will break it with the cloud cover. temperatures downtown are a bit milder. we are close to 50 outside the studios. more storms coming from offshore in california bringing heavy rainfall to coastal sections of the state. winter storm warnings have been
all of this moisture headed to colorado. winter weather advisories posted for utah. they will go out in colorado on up to eight inches of snow. that may impact i-70. a quick burst of snow in the next 24 hours especially in the central mountains. in the lower elevations, it will be more of a rain event. a lot of the precipitation staying to the north and east of us. just really a nice day coming up for colorado. things shift for us heading into monday and tuesday. right now, all of this rain coming into california is a good thing. but too much too soon. we could be dealing with some flooding there. along the front range and along the eastern plains, 70 degrees tomorrow. way above average. but the warm air will slide east. high clouds coming in during the afternoon and we will watch the rain and snow increase in the high country. i think it may be a factor for some of you traveling in and out of the mountains tomorrow as well. something else we are watching,
out on the eastern plains. lows tonight though, very mild. 30s , 40s for lower elevations. that will keep the jump in temperature quick tomorrow. we start off with 40 in the city. jump to 70 in the afternoon. look at the temperature in lamar tomorrow. 80. 50s in the high country. really. a little bit of wind along the foothills but not a bad day. changes occur monday into tuesday morning. fair skies, light winds, a cool night. 39 degrees. tomorrow, mid 60s by lunchtime. 70 in the afternoon. while 20 degrees warmer than afternoon. not quite a record. we have a chance for rain here in the city monday. skies clear tuesday. sunshine brings us a quick rebounding temperature midweek. by the end of next week, we are back to the 70s . daylight savings time a week from sunday. we will push the clocks forward and lose an hour of sleep. but, while you can enjoy this
think about is the great gold medal fly fishing going on up in the high country. great conditions for that. don't forget to send in your adventures. we want to hear all about it. >> we love those pictures. all right kathy. appreciate it. well accidents can happen any time. day or night. first responders want to be ready for anything. daytime. that changed today. they put together a nighttime training exercise and let 9news reporter tag along. >> reporter: when the job is saving lives, kyle vaughn's job is to make sure they do it right. foothills fire protection teamed up with neighboring districts. >> response on a multicar accident. >> fun right? >> i guess. >> reporter: a live person and two dummys will be rescued from

[ screaming ] >> i don't know. >> things weren't quite working the way i thought. >> reporter: vaughn the foothills assistant chief and he wants his crew to be quick. but also to be safe. >> you know, if you go too fast and don't think about it, you cause a bigger problem. and you can injure yourself or others. >> reporter: because the thing is, these firefighters are not really on the job. they are volunteers. >> all of our 34 other people have a day job. nine to five. and then they come fire fight at night. we have lawyers, doctors, engineers, truck drivers. >> reporter: and on this job, they are all professionals.
>> there is a stigma that we don't have the same level of that's not the case. >> reporter: nelson garsia, 9news in evergreen. a local state farm insurance donated the cars exercise. success. just before this newscast, we featured some of the beauty and history of this state's natural parks. 9news anchor kyle clark was our guide for this land, rediscovering colorado's national parks. if you missed it tonight or want to watch it again, it will reair tomorrow at 9:30 on channel 20. it was a fascinating experience. just beautiful pictures. he was the face of the franchise for years. the rockies traded troy tulowitzki last season. >> and months after the trade, tulo is still angry and critical of the rockies management in this week's sports a to z, we have his
go. colorado rockies. we both have on purple. >> this is an annual discussion. >> and we are not talking about finish. but troy tulowitzki comes out and lets everybody know he was not happy how the way things ended with the rockies. what did you think of that? >> i thought he was a guy who is tired of losing and couldn't help himself. he shouldn't have said anything because he is gone. but he couldn't help himself. he has a lot of animosity because the losing wore him out. the losing with the rockies will wear out any competitive person. i don't know how todd helton did it that long. >> my eyes are worn out watching them lose. 93 games a year the last five years. >> he was beaten down over the last six or seven years by the feeling that the rest of us had. that there is no hope. there is no avenue.
rockies other than continuing to lose. >> i learned my lesson with you last year when i said they might finish 500. i was mr. optimistic. what did you guys do for me? nothing. so i will not give any type of prediction. i will just say keep raiseing the fences. maybe it will turn into something good for you in 2016. that will do it for us. i'm a. very disappointed. >> talk about building a wall. i feel like donald trump here. how high can you build it? they are still going to lose.
lot of money on the table. the broncos are offering more than 45 million over three years according to our mike klis. several other teams are interested in osweiler as well and he may be able to make more somewhere else. but those teams won't be as good as his current team. so does winning or money matter most? we will find out soon. the avs have been awol for the last few stanley cup meanings. this game in nashville they really had to have especially with the wild winning earlier in the day. the guys got off to a good start. one goal in the first period and the avs got it thanks to hard work. blake cleaning none front. it was 1-0 after one. 2-1 after two. gabe landeskog with the go ahead go from nathan mackinnon.
then they gave up one, two, three, four goals. mike fisher there with what proved to be the game winner. they added a couple of empty nethers as the avs go down 5-2 and fall further behind the wild for the last playoff spot. >> it is 15 games left. yes know it's crunch time. we have to go and win hockey games but like i said, we are not going to sit around. we are going to rest up and get right back. >> while the avs are swamping, du is on a roll. the pioneers came into the regular seasonal finale against nebraska. ganbrel, the game winner. du wins. final 2-1. the pioneers good in lock hockey and battener lacrosse. picking up in du down one. less than ten ticks left. when zach miller played hero.
and we have free lacrosse. more drama in overtime. unc never got a touch. the pioneers won the faceoff. connor, the game winner from jack bobzene. du wins. their 18th win in a row. more lacrosse now. the mammoth. adam jones making national league lacrosse history tonight with a goal. well, he ended up scoring seven goals in all. but it's the first one that mattered the most. that made it 56 straight games with a score. and that has never been done. the mammoth win 14-13. just once, that is how many times the buffs lost to boulder. utah got them so tonight, they looked to return the favor in salt lake. a horrible show. cu shot 21% from the field and yet, still led 21-20. josh got the go ahead bucket.
the buffs pulled away thank to a 16-0 run. tori miller cleaning up on the inside. colorado on top by 14. but then the utes went on a 19- 0 run. are you kidding me? that 45-31 colorado lead turned into a 45-50 deficit. du loses a heartbreaker. utah takes both. final score 57-55. tsu and air force hooped it up against each other. rams trying to get it against the falcons. they won by 14. 87-73. up next for both teams, a trip to vegas for the mountain west tournament. and the rockies beat the padres in spring baseball today. colorado is now 2-2 in these games that don't count. >> they do. >> they don't.
