80s Return Tomorrow, 90s This Weekend!


Reporter: JACQUELINE QUYNH, COVERING COLORADO FIRST. THE GIDDY SUCCESS IS IN THOSE VEGETABLES, AND A GREAT STORY, JACKIE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS INCLUDING THE BIG WARM-UP COMING BACK FOR THE WEEKEND BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT SNOW ONE MORE TIME. THE FIRST DUSTING OF THE SEASON FROM THE MOUNDS AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS EARLY IN THE MORNING WITH SNOW AT THE TOP OF THE CHAIR AT LOVELAND. THE SUNSHINE HAS DONE HIS JOB AND EVERYTHING IS MELTED AND ANYTHING LEFT WILL CERTAINLY BE GONE IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. AT CITY PARK LOWER 70s, 71 SPECIFICALLY AT THE CITY PARK WITH YOUR LEVEL CLOUDS OVER THE HOGBACK BUT OTHER THAN THAT WE ARE DRY IN A BEAUTIFUL AFTERNOON FOR BASEBALL. 1:10 PM FIRST PITCH AGAINST THE CARDINALS IN THE ROCKIES OPEN FOR THE SWEEP, AND THAT IS NOT HAPPENED IN A WHILE. 77 FOR THE 9th INNING AND SHOULD BE THE HIGH TODAY, THE COOLEST DAY SINCE JUNE. LATE YESTERDAY WITH THE SUMMER COLD FRONT ROLLING THROUGH WE HAD VERY ROUGH WEATHER. THE BLUE DOTS ON THE MAP ARE HAIL AT LEAST ONE INCH IN DIAMETER AND MOSTLY LARGE ENOUGH TO DO DAMAGE. ONE AND HALF INCH DIAMETER AT ERIE AND GREELEY HAD THE SAME THING. AT WELD COUNTY AT THE GREELEY AIRY AREA YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT WITH PING-PONG SIZE HAIL. TWO AND HALF INCHES OF DIAMETER WITH TENNIS BALL HAIL WITH SEVERAL PICTURES COMING IN FROM NORTHEAST COLORADO. HERE’S HOLYOKE AT ELLIS COUNTY SENDING IN THIS PICTURE OF THE HAILSTONES ON THE GROUND. BILL IN STERLING SITTING IN A SIMILAR PICTURE OF HAIL LARGER THAN PING-PONG BALLS. SHARON SEND HIM PICTURES OF HAILSTONES ABOUT THE SIZE OF TENNIS BALLS. THAT WAS PRETTY IMPRESSIVE WITH REPORTS OF BROKEN CAR WINDSHIELDS AND BROKEN WINDOWS IN PEOPLE’S HOMES AND ROOF DAMAGE AS WELL. WE ALWAYS HATE TO SEE THAT. THIS SYSTEM OVER KANSAS CITY AND DEALING WITH ROUGH WEATHER SOON. IOWA, MINNESOTA, THE SAME THING. THIS FRONT IS WELL TO THE EAST OF US AND BEHIND THAT FRONT IS QUITE WEATHER FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. MID TO UPPER 70s AT DENVER, BOULDER AND FORT COLLINS. 50s WITH A FEW 60s IN THE MOUNTAINS AND CHILLY ALONG THE FRONT RANGE AND FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS SEASON SOME NEIGHBORHOODS IN THE 40s WITH 46 OVERNIGHT LOW AT FORT COLLINS, LOVELAND AND GREELEY. AT THE HIGHWAY 285 CORRIDOR THEY COULD BE IN THE 30s TONIGHT AT PLACES LIKE BAILEY AND 20s AND 30s FOR SOME MOUNTAIN TOWNS. COOL FOR THE NIGHT AND TOMORROW WARMING UP WITH 81 FOR THE HIGH, 88 ON SATURDAY AND 91 ON SUNDAY. IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL FOR THE CU AND AIR FORCE GAME AND REMEMBER THE SUNSCREEN FOR THAT GAME AND FOR THE BRONCOS GAME. THE BEARS IN TOWN WITH A 2:25 PM KICKOFF SUNDAY WE COULD MAKE IT UP TO 91 DURING THE GAME. THE RECORD FOR THE REGULAR- SEASON BRONCOS GAME AT MILE HIGH WAS 92 ONE YEAR AGO. THAT WAS IN 2018 WHEN THE RAIDERS WERE IN TOWN AND EVEN IF WE DON’T BREAK A RECORD IT
