4:13 pm
pull voters over, what do you think? >> darryl glenn has a great record during his time in the military. i think when we're talking about foreign policy, say. , isis, darrell glenn really -- policy, safety, isis, darryl glenn has kind of a really good record to be referring to especially in juncture position to michael bennet's support of the -- juxtaposition to michael bennet's support of the iran deal fundraiser for the soft organization for the senate. he has to answer for that hypocracy. >> i expect michael bennet to defend his positions. at the end of the day darryl glenn has been a county commissioner in el paso. i'm not sure those things translate. >> thanks so much, guys. we have to run. we'll have much more.

4:32 pm
sunshine. >> it was so nice. >> it was. we're savoring it now, but some big changes are coming overnight into tomorrow. you'll feel it. head out the door with that jacket tomorrow because yeah, those temps will be cooling off dramatically around here. in boulder you can see just a little bit of blue sky, clouds pushing in, wind picking up and already up in the high country they're looking at the rain and snowfall on those higher peaks, loveland ski area. not only are they making snow, but mother nature helping them 40s in silverthorne right now, low 60s in idaho springs. downtown denver it's 75. we're in the 60s and 70s across the i-76 corridor. now at the airport winds quiet and calm, a few more clouds and the temperature there at 76, humidity 18%. here in the 9news backyard feeling good by about 74 degrees or so. by this afternoon and into this evening the temperatures should still feel comfortable for dinner. if you're thinking about heading out to the backyard
4:33 pm
the changes will push in overnight. you can see this storm system sitting just to our north bringing in late snowfall to parts of montana into wyoming. for us a decent amount of lightning strikes out there especially across the western slope where we're seeing some of the rain showers pulling through across our central mountains from crested butte up through aspen into snowmass, fairplay, light snowfall and then around town we haven't seen much in the way of rain across i-25. you'll have to go up into wyoming and montana where you might find storms packing a better punch and also right along i-70 a good cluster of thundershowers with lots of lightning heading toward burlington. we'll keep a close eye on that one the rest of tonight. again we're watching this cool front just dipping into the state overnight. it slides in. it will be a fast one, though. it rolls in and right back out. it will deliver some cooler temperatures for tomorrow afternoon, but by about thursday into friday that will be a distant memory. tonight our overnight low 38
4:34 pm
of the northeast as that front starts dragging in 10 to 20, could see a wind gust 25 or 30 miles per hour. possibly a little drizzle and maybe a bit of patchy fog as well as this front rolls through. we stay in the 30s for a lot of folks in northeastern colorado, mild. down across the southeastern 2nd of our -- section of our state, about 34 in kremmling, very interesting this front is affecting eastern colorado through tomorrow, but you'll notice daytime highs to the west. they won't be anything. temperatures warming up, not a lot of moisture. by about 10 p.m. a couple little light rain showers to the north. across the eastern plains we're watching the clouds push through. there's that front as well as that early morning drizzle, 5, 6 a.m. if you're an early riser, you're out the door and off to work, you might have a little slowdown, but i don't think it lasts. if anything, we're left with some of that fog that takes us through about 10:00, 10:30 in the morning. around lunchtime all is well.
4:35 pm
we'll watch a few more clouds pour in by about 10 or 11 p.m. tomorrow evening, but conditions pretty dry west of the continental divide. rain showers only increasing for eastern colorado and even at that i mean .1 or less, so not that impressive. as far as temperatures, that is what we'll all notice and feel, 58 degrees for tomorrow afternoon with that early morning drizzle, the patchy fog. we finally get to clear things out. we'll watch for partly sunny skies i think after 12:30 to 1:00, sunset at 6:23. temps across eastern colorado very cool. in fact, we're probably about 10 degrees cooler than average for this time of year. we stay in the 60s and even some spots in the low is. s out across the western slope -- low 70s out across the western slope, 53 degrees in boulder and platteville tomorrow, 59 idaho springs. about 58 in fort collins and
4:36 pm
you can see this area of low pressure sitting to our north basically skirting us by delivering that little cooloff tomorrow and as the rest of the workweek goes by, high pressure starts to settle in. that means we are once again in for a huge warm-up. we will be watching that system that's pouring in by friday afternoon into the evening across the pacific northwest. that will be bringing them certainly some rain, some snowfall, some cooler temperatures. right now it looks like maybe that system will actually stay to the north of colorado. so what you see is what little early morning drizzle, some rain showers on that car windshield. you'll wipe them away and they are long gone. we're back to 74 degrees on thursday, low 80s on friday. the weekend looks fantastic if you like the heat and drier conditions, i guess it's pumpkin patch season. what mighty fine weather and low 70s the start of next week. we start to cool things off by this time next week wednesday,
4:37 pm
summertime. >> if you do a corn maze which i just did this st weekend, wear shorts and a tank top. it's hot. >> the last time i went to a corn maze i needed a 5-year-old to lead me out. they're much better at it. >> they are tricky. it's so crazy that you could be getting a suntan while you do that. >> i'm not kidding. you're like it's hot out here. >> too funny. the history of baseball in american is longer than most people realize. one area often overlooked by the majors and the negro leagues. >> he would see how the team is finally receiving the -- we see how the team is finally receiving the attention of the smithsonian. if baseball and americana go hand in hand, the greeley grays

4:40 pm
high enough, that ball would roll down there right now. >> reporter: in the end the tales may not be about players like baseball ruth or even jackie robinson. they might be about 83-year-old frank romaro who once pitched for the alamosa old timers. >> it's just a matter of you having pride and doing what you can for the community. >> reporter: it's about the it's a colorado story getting some long deserved nationwide recognition. >> we're very proud. we're honored to be a part of it. >> it's part of the american experience. it's part of history. it's part of the american fabric. >> reporter: jonathan gonzalez, 9news. >> the smithsonian hopes to put together a traveling exhibit

4:44 pm
the broncos getting ready for their next game against the chargers without their head coach. they're dedicating the game to him. >> yeah. gary kubiak is on sick leave this week. after sunday's the hospital with flu-like symptoms in an ambulance. he was diagnosed with what's called a complex migraine. remember three years ago kubiak collapsed on the field at halftime. doctors said he had a mini stroke then. defensive coordinator for the broncos wide phillips talked about the coach at a news conference today. he says he's not worried. >> go by what the doctors say and what we've heard and what john said, so, you know, i feel good about that.
4:45 pm
any other coach that i'm great friends with that has any kind of health problem at all and we went through it before, you know, and it was a lot worse. he wasn't coming back the next week. so this is a lot better. >> elway passed up on wade phillips who had been interim head coach before. offensive coordinator rick dennison will be the lead play caller on offense and wade phillips will be on defense. >> joe and his old high school is reminding the colorado native that he has their support. >> yeah. late last night arvada high school posted on facebook we hope coach kubiak will be back in action soon, but in the meantime we know the denver broncos will be in good hands with an arvada alum at the help. this will be his first game as a head coach in the league. so that's a big thing. we were all excited when we

4:51 pm
because i started wearing a scarf when i was in 6th grade and it was quite an adventure. i had to move to a new middle school since i'm just finished elementary school and along with it -- i just finished elementary school and along with it came some of my elementary school friends and the first day of school i remember they didn't even recognize me. they didn't know that i was muslim. they didn't expect me to come to school the next year wearing a scarf and i think because of that year and, you know, growing up wearing the scarf for those first couple of months and that first year i think was really hard on my confidence and it made me question who i was and why i was doing something and it was a rough period, but i think now i am so incredibly blessed to be where i am and i just feel so much love from my family and from my friends and so i just
4:52 pm
millions of muslims across the country are going through what i went through and are still going through what i am going through, too, and i just wanted to sort spark conversation, to spark the encouragement of muslim girls especially to be confident. >> yes. i love how you played into the social media aspect of it, too, and that so many hateful awful things are said on social media and how in the world you envisioned it would be a i just think it's such a beautiful age that we live in honestly. social media is such an incredible thing that we have in the world and so is technology and it's so refreshing, especially going to the white house at this event last week and seeing all the other kids that were selected. there were kids who were 6 years old and they were making films. it's just so amazing to see how everyone has the ability to change the world, especially through these social media
4:53 pm
