5:17 pm
there's enough cloud cover we should have a really nice sunset. if that happens, send in your pictures and watch for them later tonight on 9news. we're awaiting the first official snowfall in denver. the earliest day was september 3rd, the latest late november. the average is october 19th, so we're right in there in that office snow pool, but i'm telling you the next nine days i'm not sure we see snow in denver yet. way up high a different story and what a southern colorado where there were 60s in ridgeway and telluride, 85 in lamar and springfield today. the average is 68. we're doing pretty good. you'll notice the chill wednesday with the weak front coming in that may just bring beneficial rain. right now the northwest winds coming in at the airport have not translated to downtown denver. it's spectacular in the backyard outside the studios,
5:18 pm
beautiful weather conditions. we're sandwiched between two weathermakers, one in omaha and the other very unorganized salt lake city up to billings and rapid city kind of coming our way. several pieces of kind of cool front activity coming our way from the northwest. we have a warm front to the north, a cool front to the west and a separate system in the midwest. now we're under the influence of high pressure, the mild dry stable layer of air across our state meaning another warm today, above average, mid-70s here, mid-90s in phoenix. you see this cool, if not cold air lurking north, this is the high in billings tomorrow and bismarck. that air is gradually making its way into the front range. that will be tuesday night into wednesday. ahead of it temperatures warming across tulsa, oklahoma city and dallas. around here we've just got high clouds streaming in from time to time. we put isolated showers in tomorrow into tomorrow evening
5:19 pm
this front coming in, there will be one surge of cool air and a second stronger surge that comes in wednesday, but it's just not super organized. so travel on the i-25 corridor tonight and tomorrow will be fine, i-70, overnight lows 40 in steamboat, 35 leadville, almost 50 in denver with 40s on the far eastern plains. tomorrow highs will be coolest across the western half of the state, close to 90 in southeastern colorado. watching the wind coming ahead of this tuesday concern. 75 in arvada, 77 in brighton tomorrow, mid-50s in the foothills and a nice day ahead of a rather weak cool front. you will notice a temperature change midweek. let's go back to tonight's forecast, partly cloudy with light winds, a high evening. the winds will shift a bit overnight out of the southwest, bottom out around 49 degrees which is where we start tomorrow morning. mid-60s by lunchtime, isolated showers in the afternoon and
5:20 pm
sunshine numbers run above average. wednesday will be the coolest day of the week, 20% chance of showers tuesday night, 10% chance of showers wednesday and the numbers spike a70s thursday, 80 friday, comfortable through the weekend and above average readings continuing through the middle part of next week, so really a beautiful fall forecast and it is indeed still fall in areas like steamboat, jeff with that great shot there. what a great way to see colorado by train. have either of you guys done that yet? >> no. not that time of year. it's beautiful. >> anne herbst has a beautiful story she just about at 4:00. >> the scarf is going away at least until wednesday. >> i love the scarf.

complex migraine condition that caused extreme fatigue. he gets a week off to rest which play or may not include a little consult -- may or may not include a little consulting with his coaching staff. >> we're really kind of leaving that up to the doctors and so the process for gary is to worry about gary this week and so he's got some different appointments set up that we want to make sure gary takes care of himself. >> elway's choice for an shocker. special teams coordinator joe decamillis was chosen. arvada native decamillis is the first colorado born head coach in broncos history. >> kub set a tempo for us. it's seamless because he's not a micromanager. he does so many good things for us. he lets a lot of our guys do their job to the utmost anyway. we don't see a big change this
5:25 pm
try to keep whatever we can to do to win the game is the main thing. i think with our staff that will be a seamless transition. >> 9news broncos insider mike klis broke the story last night and we're live. mike is at team headquarters. let's play klis and tell. i think we all would have needed 10 tries to guess decamillis as interim head coach, mike, but it really does make sense. >> yeah. it was a mild surprise, but a pleasant one i think, drew, coached 28 years in the nfl as an assistant coach. give him one game out of 28 years. i think he deserves it. as you said, he comes from arvada. his dad sells sausages behind the south stand at mile high on game days. >> yes. >> this is a wonderful story. too bad it's only lasting one week, but it does make sense because elway wants rick dennison to worry about calling plays on the offense and they need to fix things on offense
5:26 pm
the defense. they're not coming off their best game. a short week, first divisional game. i think this is the way it all sets up, plus i didn't realize this. decamillis is the guy on the sideline who kind of handles the timeouts, go for it on 4th and 1s, when to run the play clock, when to spike the ball. he handles all that anyway. so he'll be free to do that, yell at the refs and let the other coaches take care of the pl kubiak plight have been sent right back to work, but this is more about his health history, right? >> reporter: yeah of 2013 he collapsed on the sideline at halftime while coaching the houston texans. that was a very scary moment. they called that a transient ischemic, it means a many
5:27 pm
may not be related, but the fact he's had two or three episodes it is something where thank goodness the doctors said take this week off. get away from coaching. rest up and see if they can really find out what triggers this. >> agreed. klis and tell, thanks, mike. strange but drew, immediately after decamillis began as interim head coach, he hoped to begin with a few pleasantries, but joe quickly ne point. >> now are you doing? >> awesome. great job. >> enough with the small talk. who is going to play quarterback? paxton lynch. never did get an answer. >> nbc nightly news is next. after that you'll see next with kyle clark at 6:00. have a good evening!
5:28 pm
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
developing news this evening, shock waves from that explosive confrontation. >> because you'd be in jail. >> secretary clinton -- >> donald trump, wounded by the bombshell tape revelation, brings bill clinton's accusers to the debate. tonight a civil war has ignited in the gop. surging to a double-digit lead. also, in his own words, what we found in the archives, what trump has said about himself and women. did he predict the trouble to come? drowning in a deluge. frantic high water rescues as houses become swallowed in the hurricane's deadly aftermath. a race to save so many trapped with no way out.
