7:17 am
they said the water was 37. it's cold enough that when you jump in, it literally takes your breath away, but it was so much fun. and there were two denver 7s that jumped it. it benefits denver special olympics. take a look. so that right there is lisa, her daughter, jason is in the green shirt and he did a canonball and tried to splash everyone. mitched jumped in in a suit. it was so much fun. that was me right there in the tu tu jumping in. there's conner. he was our special olympics people. the zoo was packed with people for the polar plunge, also because it was a gorgeous day
7:18 am

i thought the donations stopped at 9:00 p.m. lisa was like no, we edged you out. >> it was all for a good reason and it was incredible to see everyone who came out, so thank you to everyone who supported the special olympics and the polar plunge. weather wise, we were lucky yesterday. it was 69 degrees when we jumped in, and that was good news. today a little bit of a cool front. this morning you're not going to notice it. as you look at our current temperatures, you're going to see we're at 46 here in denver, downtown. 39 in castle rock. evergreen, you're starting off the day at 37. fort collins and greeley, you're also in those upper 30s. it's pretty mild as we start off the day this morning out on the eastern plains. some 30s, even a few 40s. lamar at 36 degrees. in the high country, a lot of 20s, so not too bad as you start the day.
7:20 am
for that major warm up like we had yesterday. eagle may be one of the lucky few to hit 50 degrees. it is going to be cooler in steamboat. you'll see a high of 39. southeast corner, you're still going to be the warm spot topping out in the mid-to upper 60s. downtown denver, 60 degrees. brighton, a little warmer at 65. castle rock may stay shy of 60, topping oot in the 50s. the metro area looking for dry conditions, but as we look at our futurecast, we're going to fast forward this to late this evening. overnight tonight we'll start to see snow move in. we have another system that's going to move into the state and that's going to bring us the chance for snow. but by mid day tomorrow it is all off to the west. the western half of the state is going to be dealing with us, could pick up about 5-10 inches of snow. you'll notice on the far
7:21 am
rain/snow mix. as the day progresses tomorrow, there is a chance that some of those rain showers will move off the mountains and out onto thh eastern plains. it looks like the metro area is going to stay dry. may see an isolated rain shower, but a better chance for a little bit of snow to move in monday night as we head into tuesday. so as i stop this here tomorrow night at 7:30, you can see that rain and snow along the colorado border and some of that could move across the metro area as we head into tuesday morning, but even as you get ready to head out the door tuesday morning, anything that does fall will be gone. pretty much 60 today and tomorrow. then we're going to cool things off on tuesday after that front, but we rebound nicely back into the 60s. go ahead and put the bright spot on next saturday, not that we're always looking forward to the weekend because the week
