researchers discovered the year you were born plays a role in how vulnerable you are to the flu. a new study find people born before 1968 were likely exposed to a flu virus belonging to the first of two groups much less susceptible in adulthood to other strains within that group. those born after 1968 appear to be protected against that second group. a study finds three important predictors to determine whether a child will become overweight or obese. researchers found that children whose mothers smoked during pregnancy, who may be skipped breakfast and don't have a
to have a heavier weight. a new study questions whether pregnant women need iron supplements if they are already insufficient. doctors linked high levels of iron to an increased risk of gestational diabetes and women with the highest levels of iron had two and a half times the risk of developing the disease than those with the least. cool video to show you here from the ocean. dolphin watchers in monterey bay, california got this special show yesterday. this is dolphins at work. the monterey bay whale watch shared the video. oftentimes they are in search of bait fish. star wars fanatics will soon get an upclose and personal look at the costumes from the movies. our lauren whitney takes us to the denver art museum for a preview. >> reporter: the denver art museum's latest exhibit, star

afternoon temperatures. we'll be about 15 degrees cooler today than yesterday. denver at 56. boulder 58. greeley 59. 50s on the eastern plains and 50s in the high country as well. in southern colorado you'll see
this morning. that's because of the cold front which is now sitting over the panhandles of texas and oklahoma. as that front drops south through texas today, it's going to allow high pressure to build back in from california. that will mean a nice weekend warmup, 60s for tomorrow as well as sunday. sunshine all weekend long. northern pacific ocean, yesterday we were talking about a storm off the coast of japan. it's made its way to that's the storm system that will hopefully bring colorado some snow the end of next week. looking more likely that the mountains will see significant snow. denver and the front range, looking less and less likely we would see beneficial moisture here. of course we'll keep you posted. today sunny, high 56. the weekend mid-60s. next week warm, at least to start the week, 68 monday. 74 close to a record on tuesday. let's check the traffic. here's joel hillan. been a great drive this
nicely. that's the situation southbound coming into town. speeds into the 60s where we like to see them, and that's 9 minutes. westbound along i-76, eastbound along i-270 looking great as well. camera switching there, we have our mousetrap cam and you can see southbound as you get on the approach to i-70 just the volume that we have out there. might be a beneficial morning for the express toll lane coming up in about 15, 20 minutes or so if you're trying to make your into town. bigger side street accident at federal and kentucky. then we've got this light malfunctioning in the westbound direction of 16th. 16th at park. be extra cautious. westbound side malfunctioning there. drive times as you are coming from the east, eastbound along i-70, making your way from downtown out to aurora, that's just 9 minutes from i-25 to i- 225. joel, thank you.
the broncos face another tough force this sunday and that includes drew brees. >> they play the saints in new orleans. broncos hoping to make things happen with the run game. romi bean joins us now. really going to test the team. >> you're right, it is going to test the team. the broncos have been so good for so long on defense, it's difficult to believe one of their biggest issues now is defending the run. as they head to new orleans for can be sure the saints will test what has become the broncos' weak spot. let's make a list here. the raiders ran for 218 yards and three rushing touchdowns in their win over the broncos this past sunday. now the broncos will be without one of their best run defends in derek wolf who will be out several weeks with a fractured elbow. saint ran for 248 yards and two touchdowns in their win this past weekend.
have drew brees behind center, who has thrown for over 400 yards in two of his four home games this season. in the saints run the ball like the raiders did, brees will have all the time in the world to find his receivers. put it all together, it spells trouble for a broncos' defense that didn't allo >> enough problems dealing with drew and what they did. what did they have last week, 248 and the week before, good again, and two different guys. they're committed. good offensive football team. they're going to run the ball and they make you get down in the box. it's why they're so good at what they do.
good plays. >> my x factor is cornerback bradley roby. he racked up 28 yards worth of penalties. if aqib talib missing his third consecutive game as expected, brees will almost certainly look roby's way. if you're looking for the silver lining, the number is 300. the saints' defense is last in the league and the only team to give up 300 passing yards per for sacks. >> i like that number. because maybe that gives trevor siemian the time he might need to find receivers. do you think we have a breakout passing game? >> let's hope so. what's been going on there is with the offense and the offensive line, it's all about timing. that's how gary kubiak's offense works. the tricky thing about this weekend is it's going to be in the dome, which is incredibly loud so it makes it difficult to have that offensive line timing perfect, unless the team's really in sync.
,, f0 good morning. time is 5:54. time for weather and traffic. 37 degrees the temperature now in denver. 6:40will sunrise. john our weather watcher in coal creek canyon, he's at around 7800 feet and reporting 27 degrees this morning. if you're not in the 20s, you're in the 30s. it's cold for everybody. not quite as cold as we should be, but still chilly. here's the plan for veterans day, we will stay about 15 degrees below where we were yesterday thanks to a cold front that's now gone by. it will stay sunny. no rain or snow with this front. high temperature today around 56. coming up we'll check your
a storm system for next week. right now let's get a check on the traffic with joel. it's a great start to the morning commute. couple of trouble spots isolated, the side streets at least for now. i-70 central park boulevard, you have plenty of company from i-225 out to i-25 if you are heading to downtown. southbound coming down into town speeds in the upper 50s. 50s and 60s as you make your way both directions along i-270 through commerce city. westbound along i-76 we have thank you, joel. a couple of new movies in theaters are looking to give dr. strange and trolls some competition at the box office this weekend. amy adams and jeremy renner star in a rival. it's a sci-fi thriller about trying to communicate with aliens. reviews are excellent. it's expected to fall in the third spot. the comedy almost christmas is
for third place. a christmas film two weeks before thanksgiving could make around $15 million this weekend. 93-year-old woman proves you are never too old to try something new. >> beautiful. oh, wow! how exciting. >> yeah, you think? peggy gruber took on the indoor zip line at the mall of america in minnesota and she had such a she said she wanted to do it again. >> a zip lining granny. who would have thought? 31 degrees. you go, girl. that looks so fun. still ahead, the cbs4 morning news, jamie is live. >> reporter: more protests expected today after thousands take to the street overnight in denver to protest the election. coming up at 6:00, we'll show you what happened when they spilled onto i-25. we'll get right to jamie in
