here's the satellite. we started out cloudy this morning, but look how the drier air came in and we cleared out and we're sunny. a pretty clear evening tonight. looking upstream, there is a couple of things we want to point out. the front that came through last night now is marching its way down across oklahoma, into dallas. a little rain along that front. the next weather maker will be a system up in portland right now, producing rain and mountain snow up there. that will slide down in the next 24 hours into colorado and bring us snow in the state. tonight, we go mostly clear. tomorrow morning, probably about 4:00 in the morning, we start to see clouds build up around craig. that's the next system coming through. the morning will be sunny. then the snow ramps up in the northern and central mountains during the afternoon. we might see a little sprinkle of rain from denver and east in the plains. overnight, another shot coming
5:17 pm
a little snow on monument hill, castle rock, up into evergreen. i don't think that's going to make it into denver, however. it will snow probably 2 to 5 inches of snow in the mountains in the next 24 hours with this system coming through. tonight, we're looking at 30s and 20s across the lower elevations. should be pretty mild. tomorrow, near 60 here. near 70 in pueblo to lamar. 40s and 30s for the mountains. my forecast for denver tonight, mostly clear, breezy, 32 degrees officially, 35 in the city. tomorrow, increasing clouds, a little windy. maybe a late day shower and overnight flakes. not much accumulation from that. the high tomorrow should be around 60, but pretty gusty, up to 30 mile-per-hour gusts going on. then we'll keep it about 53 on tuesday with a cooldown and wind. back up to 61 wednesday. then bring it back down to 58 on thursday. so we're hovering around the 60- degree mark, which is about 10 degrees above normal for this time of year as we transition to march. >> real comfortable. >> we still need the moisture.
5:18 pm
so we're coming up on that hopefully. >> we're hoping march teams up with el nino and brings us moisture. >> come in like a lion. >> let's hope. >> thanks, dave. in sports, the nuggets will be losing one of their stars, at least for a while. >> and will peyton manning make ,,

lot of wind when it blew through last night. some of the foot hills, hurricane force winds. not that crazy today. looking at the weather map out west, there's high pressure over l.a. there's a cold front north of san francisco, up into portland. that will be the weather changer coming up for the start of the week as we transition into march. the low over vancouver won't make it through colorado. that should move into the northern rockies. but this lagging cold front here will slide through and create mountain snow for us, maybe a little bit of rain or snow late in the day for the denver metro. we'll talk more about that in a minute. a recap of the day shows we made it to 60 for the high, 12 degrees cooler than yesterday. still felt good .61 downtown. we started the day at 36 degrees officially at the airport. 59 right now downtown, 58 at the airport with a southeast wind at 10, humidity at 18%. still dry, but better than what we had yesterday.

watcher in lakewood. button. karen up in superior is at 55 degrees right now. still a nice afternoon. skies overnight. by tomorrow morning, we start to cloud up a little bit in the northwest. we see a few clouds over denver, but i think we'll have quite a bit in the way of sunshine in the early part of the day tomorrow. more clouds by the noon hour. in the afternoon, see the green blobs going by in a little chance of a shower probably after 4:00 in the denver metro and eastern colorado. a shot of snow in the mountains. behind that, another shot of moisture. overnight we may see light snow from castle rock to monument hill and back up into evergreen with a little accumulation. i don't think it's going to be a big deal for us, but everything is coming from the northwest. hard to get upslope for that from the east. in the mountains, 2 to 5 inches of snow from the whole thing coming through tomorrow into tuesday morning.

30s and 20s out across the eastern plains. still above normal on temperatures across the eastern side of the state. 60s to near 70 here because it's a northwest flow, a downsloping wind for most of us. that's why the temperatures out east are still warmer. let's bring it down. mostly clear, breezy. 32 to 35 from the airport back to downtown. windy with a late shower tomorrow. 62 tomorrow. 60 at dia. some of the gusts tomorrow could beef up to 30 miles an hour. snowflakes flying by tomorrow. 53 on tuesday, cooler. then we go back up to near 60 for wednesday, thursday and friday, with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies depending which day. friday won't be partly cloudy. it's partly cloudy. spelling is different. >> thank you, dave. some drivers say denver's parking enforcement division
