5:18 pm
>> you're telling me, kim, 10 degrees above average for this time of year, plenty of blue sky, sunshine and that is really the trend yet again for the next couple days. you can see right now outside beautiful, bright blue skies. it's nice at least getting around town not having to deal with any major rainstorms or snowstorms, but man, we could use some moisture around here. you can see the worst of the drought conditions extend through parts of california into the southeast, but in colorado just really about 3/4 of the state looking at abnormally dry conditions and from larimer county through denver into the southeastern section of the state moderate drought conditions as yet again we're waiting on some rain, some snow around here and i don't anticipate a lot of it any time soon. upper 60s, low 70s the name of the game in afternoon, hit about 77 degrees in ray, mid- 60s in salida and gunnison. at the airport now nothing but sunshine. the winds are northeast about
5:19 pm
mid-60s tonight. downtown denver we're sitting at about 67. on hd doppler 9 not a lot going on, but we have a storm system just to our south and west extended into parts of arizona and new mexico, a couple light rain showers. this storm system will take its time, but it actually will move into parts of colorado. in fact, i anticipate it arriving friday night into saturday lingering into sunday. this will produce areas and a little snowfall for the san juans, so much so we have a winter weather advisory out. this kicks in at midnight friday lasting till about lunchtime saturday. right now it looks like it's going to be a warm storm. so areas above 10,000 feet have the best bet at releasing some accumulating snow and at that only about 3 to 6 inches, but hey, we'll take whatever we can get. tonight in town we'll go with clear skies down to about 39,
5:20 pm
extending across the far eastern plains and still looking mild. telluride and carbondale 30s late tonight. by 11:00 we go with clear skies statewide. 8 a.m. grab the shades. you'll notice changes pushing into southwestern colorado by tomorrow afternoon. 4:00, 5:00 the clouds start streaming in, a little rain, stoplight snowfall with the heaviest moisture -- some light snowfall with the heaviest moisture moving in saturday evening into central mountains or northern mountains. if anything, we'll just watch a few more clouds saturday and slightly cooler temperatures. tomorrow pretty much a carbon copy of today, plenty of sunshine early, a couple afternoon clouds cruising through, upper 60s across i-25, warmer across the north eastern plains, 75 in sterling and ray tomorrow, in the 50s towards the san juans where this next storm system is moving in. about 57 in nederland.
5:21 pm
longmont, platteville, brighton, aurora, denver just flirting with it like today about 68 degrees in lyons, upper 60s in wellington . maybe in the foothills you might find a couple showers. i don't think they'll sneak down to the plains. monday we cool thing off slightly, but yet again we're above average each and every day in this five-day forecast. can't shake the pattern, just can't do it. >> it. >> snow will fall eventually. >> it's good football weather. >> absolutely is. cu buffs are favored and for good reason. they're ranked highly, too, this week. >> they're out there ready.

combined. broncos defensive coordinator wade phillips might be using the elevator sunday at the game with the raiders. phillips is recovering from a broken rib suffered in a sideline collision against the chargers and figures it might be wiser to communicate with his players from a much safer seat in the press box for a while. >> i said if i'm going out, i'd like to go out on an interception for a touchdown. if that was my last play, that would be, you know, would still have been all right. >> can't believe people i've heard today saying they've never seen anything like that world series game between the cubs and indian last night. hey -- indians last night. hey, if you live in colorado, you most certainly have. >> the cubs won the world series! >> oh, wouldn't it be great if the rockies could be involved in a baseball game like that with all the drama and suspense and momentum swings and extra
5:27 pm
a thrilling finish. yeah, it was great, all right, because we had one just like it, maybe better here in denver nearly a decade ago, october 1st, 2007. rockies beat the san diego padres in the national league wildcard tiebreaker. in game was so similar to the 2016 world series finale that the scores were identical, both knotted 6-6 at nine innings. padres scored twice to take the lead in the top of bottom half. light hitting jamey carroll knocked in matt holliday with the winning run, still hasn't touched home plate. biggest difference is that victory sent the rockies to the playoffs while the cubs clinched a world championship. you know, the more i think about it, perhaps we haven't seen anything like it. that and tomorrow the cubbies have a parade through town ,
5:28 pm
rocktober back in 2007. that game was the best i've ever seen, even better than last night's. the stakes weren't as high, but they were still high and that game was even better, more back and forth. when the padres got two in the top of the 13, you knew it was over and the rox put up three in the bottom half, that was the best. >> it's going to happen again someday.
