kids demonstrated to us that this is where they wanted to be. these are the skills that they wanted. >> coming up on 9 news 8:00 a.m., you'll learn why this program's skills with a traditional twist is making such an impact. let's get a check on the weather with marty. very excited to see that. for us today, it is a dry day. it will be calmer and slightly cooler than yesterday. 69 degrees yesterday. high pressure still sitting over utah blocking storms, keeping them to our north and west. that's going to be the case through the weekend. we aren't going to see any moisture around here. however, i do believe we'll see a few clouds around here late this afternoon, perhaps we can match that unbelievable sunset that we had last night. 50s in the foothills. upper 50s to right near 60 for those of us living below 6500 feet on the front range. statewide, sunny out west. in fact for the mountains and west, this front really didn't
will drift in late this afternoon and then push farther to the south ask west and allow us to clear out overnight tonight. as far as wind goes, fairly calm during the day. it does pick up after sunset tonight, especially over the eastern plains at times, over 20 miles per hour. mountains west, 50s and 60s. upper 50s to they're 60 around here. let's go 59 downtown. a few late afternoon clouds that do skip through, push to into the mountains. that leaves us with clear conditions for early tomorrow morning. we'll be right around freezing. warmer tomorrow. windy on sunday with cloud in the morning before some afternoon sun moves in. and then near record heat on tuesday. amelia coming up in the next half hour, the planner is up and folks might be disappointed on the prospect for snow. sky 9 is over a house fire that we just learned started in the garage and burned a car.

online? you can head to 9news.com/votenow to take our online poll. we'll start it right now while marty gives you a look at what's better in today's this or that. in the not too distant future we'll all be on the couch having everything delivered to us by drone. online shopping is convenient but is there still a case to be made for shopping in a store? >> i always favor online shopping compared to shopping in a phys local retailers. it's crucial to support local retailers for the tech items and many other essentials. online is the better deals. it's easier to price compare and fewer tricks the retailer can play. the whole concept of leaving a clearing section messed up so you can't find anything or leaving items on display in the window that aren't really on sale. by the time you get into the
it's as simple as closing a window without actually having to go park your vehicle on shop somewhere else. >> when you're thinking what's better, this or that, the lines are blurry. in some ways the big advantages to online shopping are going away. >> it used to be that shopping online brought greater incentives to evading some of the taxes that we technically should be paying, but with recent crackdowns and most stores now competing on the same level, the tax you pay online is going comparable and identical to what you would pay in the store. >> it's not just the savings. some things are just better to buy in the store. ha chair looks good, but is it comfortable? those jeans fit. cool looking shoes. are they going to pinch my toes? then there's the revolution in internet auto sales. internet auto shopping has exploded in recent years by allowing car buyers to browse a nationwide marketplace. for people who know what they
save hundreds or thousands, even after the costs of shipping a car or truck. on average, car buyers spend 12 to 15 hours doing online research before ever stepping on a dealer's lot. even after taking in all the pictures, reading all the reviews about 90% of local buyers drive a vehicle before deciding to buy. the other 10%? they've already driven the car or truck somewhere else and are just looking for maybe the drones won't be as busy as we imagined. >> plus, there's the energy and excitement of malls and stores and that can milk the experience fun. a lot of folks they make an event out of it. >> sometimes it's convenience against tradition sometimes. >> sometimes it is. retailers are being more and more aggressive about making more incentive for you to come to the store. >> right. >> deals that you can only get in the store. >> there you go. >> we've been asking you at
or online shopping? >> how are we doing? >> it's kind of divided. it keeps going back and forth. >> once again a divided country, jiminy christmas. >> you guys haven't even started. you better get on it. >> no. we're going to get there. >> plenty of time. it hasn't even snowed yet. i don't feel like christmas around here. it's not going to be snowing at all today. i was talking about the amazing sunset we had last night. just phenomenal sky we had around the area near 60 during the day today. and then it warms up a bit for this weekend. we even get warmer on monday. sunday is going to be a windy day, especially in and near the foothills. >> a massive puddle formed here at 6th and logan. we've got a call in to find out exactly what's going on here. reports of a water main break. we've got a call into denver water. they'll give us that update. we've seen cars cruising in
>> unfortunately the broncos scored 30 only once this season, actually 34 against the colts a couple of weeks ago. broncos do have a great defense though, and the saints have one of the worst pass defenses in the league. so if the broncos are going to have a chance of winning in new orleans, trevor siemian and the wide receivers are going to need to have a big game and it wouldn't hurt to crank up the run game, too. >> it will be hard with two out. the cleveland cavaliers are the latest to mannequin challenge and they went presidential with it doing one while visiting the white house on thursday. they even got first lady michelle obama in on it. she's pretending to take a selfie with lebron james. >> that is awesome. >> that may be the best one. >> okay. donald trump has a lot on his hands planning his transition to the presidency. but that's not all. he also has a trial coming up
>> not our president. >> chants filled the streets of denver and cities around the world for a second night in a row herself crowds stopping traffic and demanding change in the wake of the election results. >> i don't think it's warranted and i also don't think it's entirely sincere on their part. >> not everyone is angry over
presidency. what his supporters are saying this morning about the worldwidebacklash. >> and some people in another state want to leave the union following donald trump's victory. and if they had it their way, the entire west coast would form a new country. >> we begin first with breaking traffic news here. a reported water main break is taking place at 6th and logan. if we can take a closer look here, you can see there is a large amount of water along 6th en of sphere. and once you see here, you can tell why 6th avenue is closed down. that's all water. the brown areas, there it is, just flowing out of the ground. 6th avenue in the eastbound direction is officially closed down at logan. repairs are going to be underway most likely through the entire day. that's what tends to happen especially when you see this much water coming out. let's take a look at the
delays forming leading up to logan. your alternate to the north would use 7th. it is a two-way street. use atmosphere and use local side streets other than 6th. 6th should be open east of the issue right there. the rest of the drive calm and quiet. one exception is this earlier crash around 76 eastbound at 74th with delays of about two miles. >> some issues on this friday morning. all right, amelia, thank you. meteorologist marty cogl it's a chilly morning out there. >> it is. you may hear sky 9 in the background. it's over the building here. sun getting ready to come up here along the continental divide, snow guns going the second day of being open for the season at loveland ski area. it is cool, well below freezing over the front range. northeastern plains and spreading through the mountains. a lot of us dropped down into the 20s here early this
a bit more typical this time of year. but with some sun we will slowly warm up. it's not going to be as quick of a warmup as we had the last few days. we end up in the upper 50s with a few high clouds drifting in for the afternoon. 9 cares colorado shares comes up tomorrow morning. look for temperatures in the low 30s around here during the morning. the afternoon in the 60s. a great day to get out and about and say hi to everybody. we have five locations for you around the metro area. come and visit us those. we would be happy to see you. remember, it's not just nonperishable foods. we also take coats, clothing, toys and as always, checks and cash are welcome. ? ? for the second night in a row and in some places a third, angry people marched through some of the biggest cities in the world protesting president elect donald trump.
demonstration outside the federal courthouse. >> in portland, oregon, protests turned into riots. you can see this woman stuck in traffic get out of her car and trying to throw bleach at some of the protesters who knocked her to the ground. >> hundreds of people turned out in vancouver to show they don't really like the united states' 45th president. the group that marched through downtown denver thursday night remained peaceful. some on that, as well as what the trump supporters are saying about all this. >> reporter: involves this. there's still a lot of division. to see proof of that look no further than the streets of dew point denver where protests continued last night. before we get into the denver protests, let's show you what's happening across the country. smoke bombs, flash bangs. this is in port land as protesters got disruptive overnight. in oakland, california, protesters took their message to the interstate. they blocked traffic on the freeway there. protesters also marched to the
there are also protests in los angeles and other major cities. sky 9 gave us a view of how large the crowd was in denver last night. groups of demonstrators marching downtown. at one point blocking traffic near i-25 as well as streets in downtown denver. they fear a donald trump presidency will bring about more racism, homophobia and bigotry but the trump supporters we spoke with disagree. >> i don't think it's warranted and i don't think it's entirely sincere on their pa the election results. >> i just honestly didn't feel right after the election on tuesday. and after all the hate that has been showing up on my news feeds and person. >> meantime, donald trump tweeted out this morning that he loves the fact that protesters have, quote, passion for our great country, end quote. it's a big change from what he tweeted last night when he blamed the media for the protests. gary? >> all right, thanks. first californians, now
trump's election. two portland residents submitted a petition for the 2018 ballot initiative that would have oregon secede from the union and form its own country with any other states who want to join in. a similar effort is underway in california. it's not easy to secede from the union. the president elect has officially won the state of arizona with its 11 electoral votes. a winner was not declared until thursday night because there be counted. that leaves michigan and new hampshire as too close to call. in the middle of transitioning into his presidency, donald trump is facing a civil trial for fraud involving trump university. in about two weeks. but with so much on his plate, he's hoping to push it back. he's really trying to push this back. he's going to be so busy. >> correct. this is all happening at his attorney met with the judge
with president obama. the trial is scheduled for november 28th. mr. trump's attorney says despite the fact his client wanted to be there in person, they really need to delay this federal fraud trial until after his oig august great lakes in january. now, his attorney says he will file a continuance for the trial by monday. daniel petrocelli says they want to get the trial delayed a few months so president trump can work on develop ago inauguration. he also questioned whether trump would be able to testify in court as a sitting president. he said never has there been a case in the history of the united states in which a president had to come into court to testify at a trial as a defendant. the judge told trump's lawyers he understood and said it would be wise for the two sides to settle the case. trump's attorneys also agreed to enter into settlement talks. to could lead to a quick end to the 6 1/2 year-old case.
