that's a big part of the security plan. organizers say there are no credible threats right now but, clearly, they have not taken into account the dangerous denver defense and the threat they pose to carolina. >> you know, i was actually saying when people are saying that it's a six-point spread, i was saying like this is a different defense than the bronco team that went up against the seahawks. i think this is going to be a great game. >> great answer from the police chief here in san francisco. having some fun with us while talking about a serious topic because, along with the military, along with the police, they also have hired about 4000 security personnel who are working at all the entrances, at venues as well as at the stadium. that's a big job, adele and kyle but a lot of work going into it trying to keep people safe of course to think of the geographic spread they have to cover, from the hotels in san francisco and to the stadium in santa clara.
thanks a lot, matt. a whole lot warmer where matt is than it is here on the 92 news backyard. clear, cold, about to get colder. it's cold in the city. lighter winds, clear skies, high today of only 28 after a morning low of 1, we should be in the 40s and we won't see that number until probably the weekend. south wind at dia, creating a wind chill of minus 3. you will need the jacket tomorrow and tomorrow. 12 degrees here outside the studio. not a lot to show you on the radar yet so we'll focus on the cold. temperatures in the front range in the teens. kicking up especially at some of the higher passes. some reports in the area of blowing snow. the wind will make it feel colder than the farenheit
minus 99 in greeley and minus 11 in laramie. wind and cold near cheyenne, tough driving with the blizzard warning posted there. series of weak little short waves will cross colorado on that northwest flow. we can see how some of the heavy precip is pushing through the eastern seaboard. next system moving on shore fairly week but the little waves will bring periodic snow showers to the high country, winds. we may be a couple of degrees warmer tomorrow, down sloping winds but below average this time of the year. with the next wave coming in, we start off clear, cold, with the sunshine, clouds increasing by the continental divide. not enough for the winter and travel weather advisory. cloudy in the city in the afternoon and maybe a couple of flurries drifting off in the foothills. i would not worry too much about that.
well below zero in the high country high temperatures tomorrow 20s. out west, 30s, 40s. bailey, con another and ever green, highs ranging from 26 to 36 degrees. downtown area, clear and cold night. that means chilly start to the day. sunrise at 7:05. temperatures in the mid-30s by mid day. right around freezing by 4:00 in the afternoon. a few flurries are possible again tomorrow night into probably friday. then we swipe our temperatures, close to ooh saturday. next system comes in sunday into monday. again, just flurries ahead of a nice warming trend that will help us warm off some of this snow and ice, something that they won't have to worry about in santa clara, partly sunny with the super bowl kickoff temperature of 71. beautiful out there.

wait and we're live. 9news reporter rod mackey is at the team hotel in santa clara >> today was third straight day that peyton manning gets to meet the media and he will get to talk to us tomorrow, too. four days in a row of answering the same old questions. what's surprising is that he has not had to answer a whole lot of questions about the last trip to the super bowl. that was two years ago. super bowl xlviii against seattle. 43-8, a game we are all trying to forget. >> we got beat by a hot team and a better team that night. it was disappointing. tough pill to swallow. but i give seattle a lot of credit. i was honored to be part of that team. i don't get into making comparisons. it was a real privilege to be a part of that team, just like it is an honor and privilege to be part of this team. >> the broncos are trying to focus on just foot wall but
especially with their families coming into town tomorrow. football is a huge part of life for all of the broncos but for most of them, especially the players with kids, family comes first. >> it's like i have this vision of the confetti fawrlings going to grab my son and really get pictures of that moment because that's going to be one the best pictures of my life. when i'm dead and gone, that's going to be the picture like, man, i did it. i got the pinnacle, the love of my life, my son. it's definitely going to be unique and i hope that happens. >> that will be a bunch of fun. having a chance to come out and practice on saturday, i believe. they get a little bit of the tastes of festivities. that's going to be fun. >> sanders and talib may have a chance to celebrate another super bowl as well but time is running out for demarcus ware which makes this opportunity
>> bring that family, that rock, my little kid, family to sort of enjoy that experience. usually, it's me coming here and working and i'll be on the other side. instead of being part of the experience, you are the experience. and, you know, it's just a great thing to leave like that legacy for your kids and then to come to the game and maybe sit on the sideline and enjoy something that, you know, doesn't happen every day. >> we'll have much more coming up on our super bowl updates. we'll also talk to cam newton, the other guy's quarterback. back to you. thanks, rod. nuggets played their lowest scoring game of the season beaten by the utah jazz for the garry harris gets swatted. there go the jazz the other way. great ball movement. nuggets lose 85-81. national signing day.
