think about the last time you saw snow. it has been a while. 197 days in denver. a snowless november would put denver in the record books. another sunny day in the 60s. what does saint nick think about this warm weather? sand that was at the outlets at castle rock. of course he is a weather expert and knows that the measure -- metro has not seen measurable snow since april 30. 9 more snowless days would ti >> i just put up with it. and change my shirts every day. >> santa claus. >> i wish santa had shorts. >> keeping it real. santa will be at the outlets in castle rock until christmas eve. there is bound to be snow between now and then. >> we are hoping.

quiet. you can see the front pushing through. by 7:00 a.m. we will wake up to a few clouds in the denver metro. so snowfall in the northern and central mountains possible. that will be areas above 10,000 feet. it will be nice to see at least a little blanket. for us we will see the clouds as well as an increase in the wind. lunchtime tomorrow, then the front pushes through. by 6 pm, of rain showers but i think they will struggle to make it here to the surface. it has been so dry. tonight is not too bad. tomorrow once again will be worn. but cooler. relatively speaking. 67. low 70s in lamar and pueblo. but with the incoming storm from the northwest it will not temperatures down. the mountains 40. 56 in idaho springs.
quarter. temperatures -- corridor. for the start of next week a record it 78. i think will be shy of that and another system pushes him. this potential he has or 2 it. we could be looking at some decent snowfall in the mountains. maybe a light dusting thursday night into friday but if anything we will feel the chill in the air. >> at somewhere. >> thank you. for veterans day we hold celebrations and honor the men and women who serve our country. but this morning at the veterans day parade we asked some of the most soon yet -- enthusiastic attendees why. >> who is a veteran? >> i can't remember. i think my sister knows. >> they are the people who were in the navy, and the air force,

the number 1 issue the broncos have to contend with. the way their defense has been going, the big thing is stopping the run. that is where the focus has been this week. mark ingram tim hightower, that is where the saints have turned their season around. they started 0-3 and 14 of the last 5. the broncos started 4 and 0 and lost 3 of the last 5. derek wolfe is the best run defender. and aqib talib is the best path cover. it will be tough to lose those 2 guys against the number 1 offense in the league. >> the offense will have to keep up. we need big things from trevor siemian. denver, a 3 point underdog. they lost to the raiders and cannot afford back-to-back loss. >> somehow they have to run the ball. if they can run a little bit, set up the play action and freeze those linebackers, they have a chance tomorrow.
