should be beautiful. the city is lit up, everybody ready to go. the monthly averages are 46 and 19. it's our fourth snowiest month and we started off that way. a major shift in the weather pattern will allow temperatures to soar out of the 40s into the 60s and stay there more than one day, something we haven't seen in a while. today was probably the coolest day of the week. at the airport 30 degrees, wind south at 14, steady air pressure and a wind chill of about 20 outside now. so not overly cold. all the really heavy weather is outside our state's border. we're tracking an area of low pressure that's pulling in cold air and wind. all the winter weather and travel advisories across the midwest as we can see extending through minneapolis down through memphis, all that heavy weather is headed towards the carolinas and the northeast. that's where we'll see airport delays, travel delays tomorrow. cold wind and snow wrapping around this monster low pressure system which is also pulling in some cold arctic air and we just sit right on the western fringe of that.
of us of high pressure, this big blocking dome will keep the storm track to the north of us and produce that drier northwest flow allowing in a few clouds. the winds will shift out of the southwest. that keeps us high and dry in colorado the rest of the week. look at all the moisture in the northeast and across the carolinas. that's where we'll see not only well. mid-50s in the step, but we go warmer heading into -- city, but we go warmer heading into the second half of the week. look at futurecast, a beautiful weather pattern shaping up. we haven't seen a shift in the pattern like this in several weeks. so while it's clear and we start off kind of cold tonight with overnight lows anywhere from 6 in lay den, 13 frisco -- hayden, 13 frisco, 23 in greeley, southeastern colorado 10 degrees above average in denver, greeley and fort collins, 30s in the high country, good travel weather up and down the front range and
50 in bailey, 46 idaho springs, 40 in grand lake. city forecast tonight, fair skies, light winds, cool, low 25. sun is up at 7:00, quick jump in temperature, 51 by noon, 54 in the afternoon, 10 degrees warmer than average. 60s are possible wednesday, a couple weak fronts coming in the second half of the week, but we're dry. next system i'm tracking may bring flurries sunday night into monday. i know it's valentine's day. the models aren't agreeing with this, but there is a system to watch sunday into monday and the longer range numbers just look crazy. we are going to enjoy the scenery for now, take in the view and enjoy this wonderful weather. by the way, kristen proctor says take, that cam newton. you just take that. >> he lost his pants. >> he's so cute. who cares, right? cam newton's face says it all, denver d, right? for some broncos fans the experience of watching the team

all season long broncos fans have been trying to find a good nickname for the defense. i suggested calling them offense because they seem to score all the points, but now considering what they did to is superman -- to is from man cam newton in the super bowl -- to superman cam newton in the super bowl i'm calling them kryptonite. >> reporter: the seahawks need to move over and make room for the 2015 broncos, one of the most dominant defenses of all time. >> this is no surprise. i expected this. >> reporter: are you guys the greatest defense? >> the greatest defense ever, quote me. no disrespect to any other defenses, but we're the greatest defense ever. >> reporter: turns out it's true. defense does win championships and denver just did thanks to four turnovers and seven sacks against the mvp and the best offense in the nfl. >> people kept talking about how cam couldn't be stopped.

>> joe johnson throws it up for the win and scores. >> that's what i'm talking about. nuggies lose 105-104, lucky shot. strange but drew. the official denver broncos super bowl championship ball cap that peyton manning wore during the postgame celebration had an upside down velcro strap on the back. guy puts in 18 years, breaks every imaginable record, wins the super bowl in what is likely his final game and they hand him an irregular defect hat, strange but drew. >> an actual photo, not doctored. >> actual photograph, so much so that my manning bleacher creature doll, i went to check his hat today and look at that. >> it's fine. >> it's fine. >> and the other teammates? >> it says champions. >> their hats were fine, too. >> he got the one defect hat. if somebody tries to sell you this is the hat peyton manning
