Three Things You Need to Know on February 6th

February 6, 2019

President Trump delivered the State of the Union address last night. Trump called immigration an urgent national crisis and vowed to build a massive wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, which he said was in a "lawless state." The President warned of large caravans of migrants headed to the southern border, and said countless Americans are murdered by "criminal illegal aliens". The President also said the U.S. economy is the hottest in the world, and focused on the creation of five-point-three million new jobs. 

Home sales are lagging for the month of January in the metro area.  That's according to the latest figures from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors.  The sales of single-family homes and condos were off more than 30-percent last month when compared to December.  January sales were also down nearly 15-percent year over year.  Experts say the government shutdown and a dip in the stock market could be to blame. 

Winter is expected to push back into the Front Range today. We're already seeing some snowy conditions in areas.  The National Weather Service has a winter weather advisory in effect for the metro area, starting at noon.  A few inches of snow could fall just in time for the evening rush hour.  Things are expected to taper off by tomorrow, but the storm system could leave behind some slick conditions for the morning drive.  As much as six inches of snow could fall in spots in the metro area by the time the storm moves out.
