maybe 2 inches and higher elevations in the foothills and south down near palmer divide. warm back up saturday high the mid- 40s near 50 degrees on sunday. don't get used to it. there's a big change definitely temperature wise and maybe snowfall lies. more on that coming up. thank you greg. the president has something to say one and for all about the first lady. he's responding to questions about whether michelle obama could be running for president in 2020. and jennifer aniston also speaking out about the possibility of a friends what do you think? there's been a lot of buzz
elect's policies regarding gay rights. so far the transition team hasn't commented on the flags. an oklahoma senator is releasing a report on all the way, he says, the government contributed to wasteful spending this year. in the past year, the federal government reportedly spent 2 million dollars to figure out how kids view their foods. and they found that if given a choice kids will choose food that hasn't been sneezed on versus food that has. spent money on that. they also apparently studied how food items like fish bones related to social status in country of tanzania back in the 1300s. reportedly almost 2 million was given to a university as a grant but some of it was spent on embroidered snuggies. fancy ones. really? really. hillary clinton's campaign plane is getting a makeover. now that her campaign is all done the plane will get repainted. tmz spotted it at dean baldwin aircraft painting in new mexico.
will be doing next but definitely getting the hillary clinton will obey and campaign slogan taken off. there has been a lot of buzz around the possibility that michelle obama will run for office even president in 2020. but the president is now setting the record straight. in an interview with rolling stone, the president said quote michelle will never run for office. i joke that she's too sensible to want to be in politics. but president obama says both he and his wife will be very active in working with people at a grass roots level to support progressive causes. if you're expecting a little one next year harper's bazaar has some baby name ideas for you. yes. the publication is guessing which names will gain popularity in 2017 based on events from this year. and some of them are a little strange. plus heading into the weekend, we'll see what kind of cold
still pretty long basically the length of one movie. so now everyone can enjoy the entire saga as if it were two episodes of a network drama. they need to do that with game of thrones off of cards. so people can catch up. game of thrones i don't watch it but a lot of little things. you're right. if you don't catch those you don't know you don't get the stuff later on. there's nothing like binge watching. a son getting a swimming lesson from his dad no big deal happens all the time. this one is a little bit different. significant when your dad is a world famous olympic gold medalist. that's my mom ms. kathy. she taught me how to swim and this is the same teaching strategy as i was taught. michael phelps spent some time teaching his baby boy boomer how
as you see right there. boomer also spent some time training with his mom nicole. the couple got help from instructors who got boomer acclimated to the water. that's a very important first swimming lesson rather. correct me if i'm wrong i think his son is actually named after his swim coach now boomer. that's kind of cool. lots of coaching and the fact that his coach when he was a baby was right there. isn't that wonderful. great stories to tel people were very excited to see reboots of their favorite classic shows netflix like fuller house and gilmore girls a year in the life. so many on the right now. so now the daily variety wants to know what other cult tv classic you want to get another chance on streaming tv. the choices are firefly a futuristic drama about a spaceship crew fighting to survive after a civil war. my so called life a teen drama starred claire daines and jared leto.
pushing daisies a comedy about a pie maker who could bring dead things back to life. freaks and geeks a teen drama, a cult classic. reportedly there were 18 episodes of the show made but only 12 aired. yes and how about jericho about a post apocalyptic kansas city. okay. happy endings a sitcom. 6 friends in chicago. party down a series that aired on starz about caterers in los angeles. or you can just choose other. which is the option i would go for. we have some results that now. a tv show. a tv movie. health. i thought. okay we remember else. i'm messing everything up. here are your results. firefighters are ahead. pushing daisies in second place a live look at variety site
poll. if you were hoping for a friends reboot bad news jennifer aniston says don't count on it. she was asked that question yet again during a recent interview with itv. she told them, she doesn't really see how that would work because that period of time was sort of nostalgic. she said the show was not only a gift for the actors, but she's glad that viewers can enjoy it again and again, in syndication. which she collects paychecks from again and again. and just watch it a lot of shows people would like to see. come back a little bit more. a wheeled conundrum. do you really want the actors whether it's friends or something else 20 or 30 years later coming back and possibly ruining what was a great show cracks that's exactly what a lot of people are worried about. never meet your heroes. not going to be your hero anymore. we're a month away from the new year.
be for 2017. their list is based on events that have taken place over 2016. it's really been an interesting year. here are some guesses for girls. belle because of the beauty and the beast remake. eleven from the show stranger things. they call her l. you want to make a bet? move along. meghan because it announced that meghan markle is taking prince harry. i'm sorry you guys i meant to say dating. where are you going to take him? just trying to help. moana from the new disney movie. arya from game of thrones. is that how you say that? yes. i love that show. dusty because of adam levine's baby dusty rose. michelle because of michelle obama.
i'm surprised they stop there with the election stuff. they didn't. for the boys. donald for donald trump. justin for canadian prime minister justin trudeau. and some inspired by legends lost this year. bowie, prince, or muhammad. okay. and still surprised based off of there for the election stuff. you thought there would be more? yes. i don't know 11 go back to 11 i like the name but 11 i just i don't know. in hollywood you'll still see that. don't you think? gigi's kids name is blue. my name my kids name is grand. as easy as it gets. apple. my goodness. stuck with us forever. just weird. not the babies by the names.
teamwork makes the dreamworks. they were going a little while ago from the four seasons camera. the winds not blowing them are on. wouldn't miss the chance to blow some snow. temperatures as we roll on south of the mile high city they're starting to warm up at about two the daytime highs 35 highlands ranch 38 castle rock. only way to make it to the upper 30s today. 35 in denver. 35 at dia. temperatures definitely cooler. air to come. check out the forecast here this evening. there will be snow out in the mountains. some natural snow we may see some fresh powder unveil camera check it out tomorrow. we may not even be able to see the camera at 11:00 tomorrow because as we roll to friday afternoon upslope starts that will kick some snow in the foothills. snow down to the palmer divide as well. and may be some snow in denver.
not much going on. maybe a quarter of an inch around downtown. probably pushing it. future cast says but it's measly quarter of an inch kind of on the fringe here. i would say up to an inch for the foothills and down on palmer divide although that's pushing it really the only snow that will follow at least accumulating in the mountains. one to 3 inches expected there. then we had to be extended forecast. you want one air that's the weekend right there. sunshine saturday warmer. high temperatures in the mid to upper 40s rapid up on sunday. if you want more snow you may have to wait until monday and tuesday and were also is not a definite what we will feel like is winds winter early next week monday evening cold air rushes and. snow or not and it will drive the temperatures down to the 20s as highs possibly the teens at high temperatures by the middle of next week in the lows made to below zero by this time next week. i know it's a ways away trying
advanced warning could be a decent snowfall event monday night in tuesday. this thing for this ingredients kind of in the works for me to come together perfectly to get us the snow. through the duration of tuesday and it could be enough we would have to shovel it. just kind of letting your ears perk up a limit not calling for anything crazy. keep an eye on the monday night tuesday forecast. also close eye on saturday sunday forecast where highs 50s. trees. nice. it might sound too good to be true. but nestle says they're making it a possibility. the company says, they have invented a new type of chocolate how did you get want of art out of that? every chocolate bar is a wonka bar to me. a new type of chocolate without all the sugar.
a new invention by nestle might make a lot of people happy just before the holidays. the company says it has made a chocolate with less sugar and more taste how do you add more taste? just sprinkle that in? nestle is applying for a patent and plans to start rolling out products containing the new sugar in 2018. the swiss company couldn't comment on issues related to calories, costs and regulatory approvals. we'll be waiting to see if it taste as good that would be a great choice for a lot of people who can't do all of that sugar. for the rest of us we just get to eat twice as much. doing the math on that and i am liking it. here in denver we love our sports teams. and our love, is greater than most other cities, across the country. according to wallet hub denver is the tenth best sports city. we're 6th in terms of football. and 6th in terms of hockey but we lag a little in the baseball, soccer and basketball categories.
the top five sports cities are chicago, los angeles, pittsburgh, boston, and new york city. if you're wondering about los angeles they are number one for basketball and number two for soccer but they're 211th for football. can you believe that? the number one football city is green bay. that's not a shocker. i'm surprised we did so well when it came to hockey. a lot of hockey fan here but not compared to a lot of other cities. detroit especially. when you look at the hockey team since we have so many transplants not a lot of people are on the wagon just yet. that's great. if you want to play hockey might be getting closer. got to find a pond first of all. they'll build a rink for you but you need cold temperatures and weekend that as we roll into the next forecast low below zero.
