steelers whooped them without andrew luck on the field! we hope you had a wonderful holiday. >> some may be thinking of heading out to the malls or heading home with family and friends. we want to check in with kathy sabine. much better outside. >> christine, it was terrible this morning! the winds were 60, 70 miles per hour! creating areas of blizzard conditions for those in the high cou, powder. finally things are quieting down. so we're thankful tonight. a beautiful thanksgiving evening this downtown denver. check this out. big, bright moon out there. clear skies and fabulous weather unlike this morning when we had wind gusts to 74 miles per hour south/southwest of wheat ridge. gold hill, winds over 60. and in boulder, winds at 58 miles per hour. much improved this evening with the exception of higher passes.
closely here. it all has to do with the jet stream. that stream coming out low. and that high building from the west created the gusty winds. but then that easing a little bit and with the high pressure anchoring over us, you'll love the forecast for friday and for saturday. now it is a little chilly out there right now. good radiational cooling and clear skies. already at 27 degrees at dia! thankfully there's not a lot of wind because it would feel colder and then those fahe seem to be a big issue as of yet. average high this time of year is 48. even though it felt really cold today, this is where we should be this time of year. i think we're done with the record highs we've been reporting the last two months. we're done with that. dia at 27 degrees now. and windchill east of denver is mid-teens. those heading out for midnight shopping, grab the jacket. you'll need it. and winds are southeast right now. pretty light. we're watching the next system
the pacific northwest. but it's quiet from los angeles, las vegas, identify nix, albuquerque into denver -- los angeles, las vegas, albuquerque central terminal and denver. -- and denver. a decent day. temperatures overnight tonight will bottom in the low 20s. it'll be cold. that means when you start off your friday morning, it'll be very brisk with temperatures below freezing. so our storm, just racing off the east. wind shifting a little bit. and then trackg system coming onshore in the pacific northwest. in the denver metro area, clear, cold. less wind tonight. and winds now out of the east at about 5 to 9 miles per hour. it'll shift to the southwest a bit. and that means at sunrise when we're at 23, the temperature will spike quickly jumping to the mid-50s by lunchtime. close to 60 tomorrow. i really do think that saturday will be our warmest day of the extended period. originally we had snow in for sunday. that big broncos game for town. we took the snow out.
so there's a chance for flurries monday night. light snow and cold on tuesday. and then look at this nine-day planner. there's a lot going on. we have, of course, light the lights and all kinds of things going on. so if you're thinking about going skiing, this is just a great time to get up there and enjoy all that fresh powder. we have winter park that's open now. wolf creek did well with this system and just spectacular conditions. we have the big football game coming up. christina, ryan -- st and ryan, we have one in boulder. those forecasts for the games, very important! >> absolutely! and a lot of people doing their christmas shopping this week! >> i know, i know! and would be a good time to do it. and putting up the lights! good time to do that. >> don't wait until the snowstorm! >> oh, yeah! thanks, kathy sabine. i-25 in castle rock by the outlet mall. the stores open at 8:00 tonight. while there were backups earlier, things are better
meanwhile, other stores open at -- as early as 3:00 this morning. >> reporter: hey, guys. we're right in the middle of the mad rush at best buy in denver. the doors just opened. we'll try to talk to some people taking advantage of some of the deals out there. we'll walk up to this woman. excuse me! hey. what are you looking for? >> a computer. >> reporter: what kind? >> a desktop hp. >> reporter: okay. looking to save some money today? >> absolutely. >> reporter: what time did you get out here to >> about 4:00. >> reporter: 4:00? to you've been at it for a little while. >> little bit. >> reporter: was it worth it? >> absolutely. >> reporter: awesome. well, good luck finding what you're looking for. >> fine! >> reporter: some waiting an hour. others longer than that. we talked to some who got here last night. some early this morning to take advantage of the deals. th?" is what we're seeing now. on thanksgiving day, ors opening so people can take advantage of these doors. k black friday tomorrow. noel brennan, denver, 9news.
with noel again in a little while. he's moved to colorado mills to check out the shopping there. d this morning, nearly the mile high united way for turkey truck. the weather didn't stop thousands from getting in the race this morning. [ gobbling ] >> reporter: there was actual turkey running the frisco turkey trot this year. his name is christmas. he has there was about 800 runners. runners saw a few inches of fresh snow. wasn't a problem for those dressed to run for the holidays. >> we're here for the frisco turkey trot. and why else would i be dressed like this? this is an everyday thing. it's wind slick and, yeah! should work good. insulated. not to mention this hot does some really funny stuff when you're running, too.
[ laughter ] money from the frisco turkey trot goes their science, technology, and math program. this year, it raised $2,000. >> so the whole idea, you run to burn off calories and stuff your face to gain them back tenfollowed. robert mcadam did just that by -- -- tenfold. >> robert mcadam did that at 96. he finished it in 48 minutes and 19 seconds. now, it by the folks at guinness or anything, but that would be the world record! next year mcadams wants to beat his time by 3 minutes. good goal. >> certainly an inspiration. some turkeys ended up the star of many kitchens today. although we found one the star of a football practice. the mavericks are getting ready for their playoffs this weekend. today they found their

it was a sunny day today across most of colorado. afternoon, a tree on castle rock certainly pops with color. >> it wasn't always that way. a neighborhood came together to paint it last month. noel brennan tells us why. >> i kept saying it wasn't dead. you wasn't ready to cut it down. but it's probably dead for a while. >> reporter: there's only one tree in castle rock that keeps it color yearround. >> we've been getting a lot of people coming by and showing us their approval by saying the tree looks great. but they don't understand why.
aspen here belongs to michael our dead aspen! that would be great! and cara was all for it. yeah, let's do it! >> reporter: they talked about their tree one night in september. >> then the next morning, she was in a car accident and passed away. and , you m -- >> reporter: the crash -- and, um -- >> reporter: the crash was just blocks away from castle rock high school. >> we're doing our best to
spirit alive! [ sniffing ] >> today we painted it. her classmates joined us. all the neighbors on the street joined us. family, friends. it was a good day. >> yeah. >> reporter: cara's tree was painted the way she would've liked. >> i think one of her principals told me he had never seen anyone be accepted or accept people in all different spectrums of the school -- >> reporter: the help but be proud. >> it's humbling to know that that little being came from us, you know? [ crying ] >> reporter: this tie dyed tree serves as a reminder of the color that cara brought to the world. >> we learned a lot about her that she stood up for the right thing.

this is 9news. usual on a thursday night at this time as people head out to their holiday dinners. in most cases, the streets are clear. it's a little different story around the shopping malls at this hour. the black friday rush seeped into thanksgiving again this year. drivers backed up on i-25 at founders in castle rock. their destination, most likely the outlet mall.
