sun is shining brightly. the skies are blue. the temperatures in the 30s. towards the eastern plains 40s. 50 degrees down south in el paso county. colorado springs 20s and 30s in the high country for right now. fast forward to this afternoon. 40s, 50s for higher elevations. we are going to be unseasonably. should be around 50 degrees this time of year. highs in the upper 60s. could see some 70s. very much like spring. here is a look at radar and satellite. it's quiet around the metro area. we have that cloud coverage sneaking into southeast colorado and the high country where this first wave of rain and snow is already developing out towards the san juans. now, that's just going to keep going as the sun rolls on eventually making its way along i-70. the drive home is going to be wet at times. in the city still staying dry. clouds fleeing this afternoon a little breezy, too. red flag warning in southeast

in the forecast tomorrow afternoon a chance for those thunderstorms, possibly some of monday into tuesday. by tuesday it clears up with a wednesday 59. thursday 67 friday 71 degrees. can download our 9news app and get better active radar there, hourly forecasts and track the storm as it moves through on monday. >> a great way to stay up to date while we are not on the air. thanks.

i think he did so much for the broncos. plus, he is a bronco the most recent. it's the most vivid memory. >> not mention going out with the super bowl. that doesn't hurt. >> and let's talk about his last season for a little bit. it was historic in so many ways. a lot of injuries. to have that documentary aired, too, during the season was tough. >> he did. you know, this last season kind of stained his four years here, except for how he came off the bench and came to the rescue in that san diego game. >> that whole super bowl thing, too. >> yeah, the post-season. yeah, this was an up and down season definitely statistically. it was his worst. he is making the right decision to leave the game. i think he got to the finish line on fumes, but he also got to the super bowl championship finish line as it should be. >> we have just a couple of seconds here, mike. i want to talk briefly about broncos.
now the potential for brock osweiler pick up with peyton manning left off. can they make it back to the super bowl? if they have the same defense. >> just a reminder, the press conference will be held tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. we will carry it live on 9news and channel 20. >> we have been asking you to share your memories of peyton manning this morning. so many of have you on 9news.com and on our social media sites with the hashtag be on 9. here are some comments this morning of all your peyton memories. michelle wallace thank you for sending your memories to us. we will continue to post these through our show. all you have to do again, use the hashtag #beon9. >> thank you for the great memories. what a fun parade. >> i remember that. >> just so fun. the mass of people. the sea of orange out downtown that day. >> sonya, thank you, we love you peyton. thanks the fun. we will continue to post them.

>> manning against in the gun. throws. thomas again who is open. thomas is into the end zone. >> three touchdown passes. off to great start. throws. welker's got it. spins inside the tackle. and wes welker has his first touchdown as a denver bronco. >> peyton manning's fifth touchdown of this game. >> throws the ball. right side. caught by demaryius thomas. thomas in the end zone and the sixth touchdown pass of the game. >> screen pass. he is off to the races. midfield. he is long gone. that will be peyton manning's seventh touchdown pass. he ties an nfl record. and this is against it. >> it's official, folks. peyton manning is hanging up his helmet. he is retiring. our sports insider mike klis joining us. we have been talking about this all morning long. what is the reason for timing of
there was a deadline here? >> yeah, there was. on wednesday his $19 million salary for the 2016 season would have been fully guaranteed. the broncos weren't going to pay that $19 million. in fact, they had pretty much decided they had moved on from peyton manning. but they wanted to give him the dignity of going out on his own terms, making his own decision. had he decided not to retire and, you know, he wanted to have more time to consider this, the broncos would have been forced to make a move on tuesday, probably release him. but they let him take as much time as he could. the deadline was tuesday for him, since his salary would have been guaranteed wednesday. he made his decision yesterday. so they got a couple extra days now to try to get osweiler done. >> that could have been messy. yeah. >> obviously, a lot of back and forth on whether or not peyton would actually retire. if you look at it, mike, thinking about this in the past couple of hours, there were so many little clues here and there.
it started right after the new england patriot against the patriots. first of all, we didn't know about the bill belichick conversation. that came out a day or two later whether he said this might be my last rodeo. that was a hint. on the podium in the afc championship presentation he was saying good-bye to the denver fans. his manner, what he had to say, it sounded like a guy who said good-bye. and then in the super bowl, the night before the super bowl he addressed the team and he started getting emotional. and so right then you knew at least everyone knew that was it for the denver broncos. manning and the broncos. the question is, whether he hung them up for good, and that's what he decided. >> and speaking of those signs, it's something peyton's been talking about a long time, included this clip from a while back. >> so i think you do have an appreciation for those faces. you know once you stop playing, you don't get to fly on a plane
standing up when the plane is taking off. fastened. phone. when the pilot says we can't take off, they are lying because you can [ laughter ] >> you know, because we do it. those are the things you miss when you stop playing. >> your reaction to that, mike? >> yeah, i tell you, when i covered him the last four years, i was neutral, objective, but i had a sense i was covering history. >> you certainly did. and you were. thank you. by the way, we are going to carry the press conference that's expected to happen tomorrow at 11 live on channel and channel 20 and 9news.com. >> don't forget to tune into 9news.com. some other headlines this morning. snow and rain in california headed our way now. we could see temperatures on the 70s today in the front range with snow and rain in the high country. and that rain may hit the metro area by tomorrow. >> let's check in with belen de leon. she is in the weather center with our forecast.
the metro area right now, but that's changing? >> yes, it is. tomorrow especially. that chance of rain increases here on the front range. in the high country, that's where the rain and know is going to fall today. here is a look at radar and satellite across the country. in the west that california storm that has brought rain, flooding and big time snow to into colorado. the first round of moisture in the state today and then a second chance tomorrow, and that's when we will see those us here in the metro area. so one more warm dry day for us. that snow increases in the mountains. tomorrow turns wet and cool for us here in the metro area. it's beautiful in fort collins right now. check out all that sunshine over the csu campus where the temperatures are currently in the mids 40s. mild as we are starting off the day in denver. 50s in the eastern plains. in the high country a mix of 30s, 20s, and 50s towards the western slope. fast forward to this afternoon.
it's going to feel like spring here down low. in denver a high of 69 degrees. our normal high is 50 degrees this time of year. 68 in fort collins. 70s out east. a possibility for 80s in lamar. now, this spot that's going to be the warmest across colorado is going to have some strong winds. humidity there is going to drop between 11%. that means a red flag warning goes into effect at 11:00 a.m. and lasts through 5 p.m. but in the high country with that snow falling and becoming more intense, we are going to have a winter weather advisory, and that's going to include the i-70 stretch. so your drive home this afternoon once you get off the chairlift is going to be wet at times. it looks like you will be okay to travel back on to the front range. your futurecast is going to keep us dry in the city. those clouds do increase as we go through this sunday. 7:30 rolls around. partly cloudy. rain and snow andy i-70. a mix of rain and snow really scattered in our high country. overnight here in the city a

right now on balance of power, colorado's democrats felt the burn on tucson. bernie sanders won the state caucus by 18 points, but nationally hilary clinton is the one with momentum for the democrats. and donald trump is racking up huge wins for the republicans. today the road ahead and what it might mean for the senate race in colorado. >> thank you for taking the time. we appreciate it. >> great to be here. >> thank you. >> so if things continue apace, it looks like we are in for a general election match-up that could be trump versus clinton. what does that race look like in your mind? >> well, first of all, who would have thought we would have dom this place? i certainly didn't call this a year ago, six months ago, three months ago, even a month ago. i thought there was still an out. i think it looks good for democrats because polls show that trump is the most beatable
and i think clinton is going to have a much better job, a much easier path in solidifying the out. >> i think bernie sanders has made hilary clinton run really far to the left, and that's come back from. in addition to that, she just doesn't have the energy of obama. i think that once the people who came out and caucused for bernie start to feel disenfranchised by their ridiculous super make-up, they are going to lose more energy as a party. >> do you not think trump that is made all the candidates move to the right? trump himself is far to the right on some things. >> he is kind of a mixed bag when it comes to policy. it's kind of ever changing. but he had over a million people show up to the polls for him in virginia. >> and the post super tuesday
i think he is a unifier for the democratic party. he is going to energize our base and bring people out. even if clinton isn't able to accomplish it, going against trump i think will accomplish that. >> gut check time. could donald trump win the general election in november? >> yes. >> too many people have discounted him to this point. i think to say he couldn't win is a huge mistake. >> so doesn't that put a lot of work on the democratic party's shoulders? >> it does, but republicans are going to be fighting two battles. number one, they have got a divided party in supporting trump or not. number two, they have got to look down ballot. >> isn't the real issue, when we skip past the nomination process, trying to win over the people who couldn't have participated anyway, the unaffiliated voters? >> yeah. there. we thought he had challenges getting the nomination and he seems to be doing particularly well there. i think this is a different election than we have ever seen before.
frustrated after eight years of obama. i think that people are sick of hillary and her stiffness and the fact that she feels entitled to this just by virtue of the fact she is a woman. and i think that people just want to burn the entire thing to the ground and start over. and donald trump signifies that for a lot of people. >> in that same vain, i hear talk i never could have imagined out of establishment republicans. some even talking about do we scrap the gop and set up a new political party? i mean, could that actually happen? could we see the republicans divide into two parties this year? >> i have a lot of friends who are considering supporting gary johnson, the libertarian candidate, former governor of new mexico. and, so you know, it's possible that we could see a rise of a more libertarian either party or section of the party. i think it's yet to be seen.
and none of the rules of who knows? lying. >> if trump were to win, would that be good for the republican party in the long term? now he is the standard bearer. he stands for what the republican party is all about. of republicans, especially in the establishment, that are going to stand for that. and i think they automatically from what he is doing, and go a different direction, such as third party. >> if clinton is the eventual nominee for the democratic party, should we take her loss in the caucuses here as a sign that democrats around verye -- very enthusiastic in colorado? >> you got to remember that republicans had 15, 16 candidates. that's a tremendous infrastructure to get out early primary voters. democrats had, you know, handful. >> we have more than a dozen
senate race right now against michael bennet. they are hoping be nominated as the person to run against him. do you see a path for someone who supports trump to win? both. to ask him that question at the debate we will be having on so. but with that many people, it very vulnerable. >> they are going to have to make a decision quick. michael bennet has hitched his wagon to hilary clinton. does this rear it's ugly head for him in november? >> certainly, there are going to be challenges. he has hitched his wagon, as you say, to clinton early on. i think that helps him in a general election.
each other solidify the base. i think that's a good thing. i think the main question is what are independents voting for? they didn't get to participate in the primary or these caucuses. like republicans, are they vote be anti-establishment, or like democrats are they voting experience? i think that's a question that's going to play big in colorado. that's a third of the electorate. bennett has yet to take a stance on healthcare and what are bernie supporters, people sense of history showed up for a democratic socialists going to do when michael bennett realizes what the political tea leaves looks like and opposes it the same way hickenlooper did. he is going to have problem at the top. ballot. >> a trump affiliated candidate running opposite bennet pushes all those people to bennet and gets them excited about going for bennett. >> we had a lot of complaints about the caucuses on both
the republicans couldn't parse anytime. the democrats had giant logjams. is it trial to go back to a primary in colorado? >> my family arrived, children in tow, at 6:45. we were checked in at 8 thyrses. i didn't get to participate because i had allowed that much time, an hour and a half, to actually do something in the caucus. it didn't happen. so like working families, parents with young children, seniors, people who work at night, they didn't get to participate either. and i think that is starting to live out its useful life. i think a primary is in our future. >> you know, every four years we talk about this and then some legislator puts it forth and then they look at the fiscal notes and then it dies. we have this discussion literally every four years and it always dies because it costs a lot of money to switch the system. >> thank you for your time.
this sunday, have the anti-trump? ted cruz has himself a super saturday and donald trump, who won louisiana and kentucky, seems to agree. >> i won ted one-on-one, okay. >> cruz wins kansas and maine and wins the day on delegates. >> donaltrump is not the best candidate to go head-to-head with hillary clinton. >> meanwhile, whatever happened to marco rubio? three thirds and a fourth on a rough night. also, bernie sanders scores wins in kansas and nebraska, but
