that's lincoln avenue right there. it is snow covered. can't see the sleeping giant. visibility is low. winds are strong in the mountains where the snow is falling and this storm system is moving through colorado. now several areas in the mountains will see up to about a foot of snow. travel advisories in effect until tuesday morning. that's how long we are expecting that snow to stick it around in the high country. today the temperatures here in the metro area are going to be cooler. we also have a chance at some morning rain and snow on th plains, and then our skies will clear this afternoon and the winds will take over. winds this afternoon could gusty up to 15 and 25 miles per hour. here is a look at doppler. it shows us where that snow is falling right now, mainly in the mountains along i-70. that drive is going to be a very difficult one. also some moisture out on the eastern plains and in northeastern colorado. it's a shame that folks in boulder were celebrating so late last night. they are missing out on light snow this morning. that's where it's falling as
8:06 am
the temperatures right now are in the 40s and 30s. this afternoon your temperatures are going to be in the 50s. so today cooler than yesterday, and tomorrow cooler than going cooling down for the rkyou read >> bring it on. we will bundle up. coloradans know how to dothis. thank you. looking just fine. increased from when we last checked in an hour ago. 48 miles per hour to and back from the high country right now. so, yeah, look at your look up copper mountain along i-70. the cars are going a little slower, as you can see some snow is covering the road, but not too bad, guys. no major alerts for you this morning. a busy night for denver police after three separate shootings in the metro area overnight. at least two people have been

8:09 am
friday in wisconsin. hillary clinton's campaign said it did not ask for a recount because they couldn't find any actionable evidence of hacking or tampering with the votes. still clinton did agree to participate in the stein- initiated recount. clinton's team will have team members on the ground monitoring the count. this is drawing criticism from donald trump who said the intention be for the green party to raise money since it's highly unlikely that the recount will cause any changes. here is a weird story. no one does black friday like the team behind cards against humanity. they continued their tradition of absurd black friday antics by raising thousands of dollars
