5:35 am
right now they use a radar system to detect and control drones so if they do get close enough to airport, the government can disable it and bring it down to the ground safely. and is agencies like the faa tried to keep up with this technology, right now they are not able to regulate drones as quickly as the public can get access to these unmanned flying devices. that access is growing very quickly so we are expected to learn more about how the testing is going and exactly what the faa is doing later today. ve cbs4 morning news -- shawn chitnes. get ready, winter weather is on the way for today and tomorrow. it will look and feel a lot like summer time with the normal high temperature now 52. today's record is 77 set back in 1941. we have 79 and the forecast and it's certainly

5:47 am
mountain valleys -- san juan mountains, and east of vail pass no watches warnings or advisories at this point including summit county or the winter park area but we will still see a cumulative snowfall there. summit county and around winter park could see anywhere from 4" 28" total -- to 8" of snow. after this wraps up thursday night into friday. so let's break down the timing. 6 pm today, dry across colorado and overnight we start to see a few flakes in the mountains. by 6 am tomorrow it will be snowing over a good portion of the high country and here in the denver area we could see cold rain by tomorrow morning and by lunchtime some of the raindrops will start transitioning into snowflakes. it won't be a ton of precipitation tomorrow and if we see the light snow will most likely be late in the day generally after 3 pm, maybe an inch or two of the chelation on the rooftops -- of accumulation on the rooftops but because it is so warm, remember 80 degrees today, we won't have much a chelation on the road surfaces.
