>> we have a weather alert. storms rolling through the area. there's a lot of thunder and lightning taking place downtown. dave aguilera is in colorado's weather center tracking the storms for us. >> nothing severe tonight, but another little good soaker went through in the last hour. you can see it here on the live doppler 4,000. most of the moisture just kind of traveling east across the state.
i can see where the storms were blowing up in jefferson county. and moving over the city tonight. dousing us with a little bit of rain. now, it has fallen apart over dia, but could see a few more showers into the evening. i will show you when those end and i also have that all important weekend forecast for you right around the corner. >> thank you david. also tonight, a prime time look at the broncos first real quarterback competition in years. mark sanchez, trevor siemian, prove they are the starter. >> mark haas joins us now. >> reporter: this competition has gone on months and it may go on another week or two at least. we may have to go to gary kubiak's judgment card. mark sanchez played the first quarter. he had a pass to demaryius thomas. sanchez, 10-13 for 99 yards.
he was sharp, but not spectacular, seven for 12. 88 yards. no touchdowns, no interceptions. he led a couple of short field goal drives. as for paxton lynch, completed six of seven passes. 74 yards. also, no touchdowns. no picks. he moved the ball a bit. but did not put any points on the board. broncos dominated that scoreboard 20-0. the final, and michael spencer was in chicago. so any separation in quarterback competition? >> i think we would be talking about separation if not for the interception mark sanchez drive. he probably won the quarterback battle today even with that interception. he was really good under pressure. his interception didn't come because he was under pressure and threw a pick six like in training camp. all three guys were just decent today. nobody was necessarily spectacular. that is kind of how they felt
clear, this quarterback competition is going to live on for at least another week. >> i think they went out and played like they have been practicing. >> it is important for us to score on that first round. not just a field goal, but to get six points. to stand there on third down and take a hit. it is nice to pop up from a hit like that. they never feel good, but they standing in the end zone with the ball. >> i feel comfortable with the game plan. the way we put the game plan together and the plays we had in there on the plays they call when i was out there. they were pretty simple to run. i felt pretty comfortable. >> reporter: you know, i had a chance to talk to all three guys after the game. now that you have one preseason game under your belt, what do you need to do in the next couple of games and to a man, they all said we need to keep
do and hopefully hark will be good enough for one of them to step up. with the broncos, i'm michael with sports. >> broncos still need a starting quarterback. the avalanche need a new head coach after patrick roy surprisingly resigned today. he said in a statement his vision for how to make the avalanche better was not matching up with the organization and his imput on team decisions was not heard. he was coach of the year in his first season, but avalan last two seasons. they were caught off guard by his decision. we will hear about that later in sports. outrage over the sentence for a former cu student who raped another student. he won't serve any prison time. for more on the crime and punishment, we send it to lauren dispirito at the boulder county jail. lauren? >> reporter: austin wilkerson is spending his nights here behind bars and it will be that
to school or work during the day. that is his punishment for his misdemeanor conviction. but a jury also found him guilty of felony sexual assault and it was in sentencing him for that count that the boulder daily camera reports a judge wanted him to have a chance at rehabilitation. prosecutors wanted prison for 22-year-old austin wilkerson. they found the university of colorado student guilty of ng after a party in 2014. he told her friends he would take care of her. >> the defendant had truly earned a sentence to the department of corrections. >> reporter: but the judge sentenced him to 20 years probation. >> there is a lot of oh, poor him, we don't want to ruin his life. it was a one time thing and we are forgetting that this wasn't something that happened to the perpetrator. it was something they chose to do. >> reporter: victims advocate
judges take into greater account the defendant's future than the victim's. he was in the c football program. earlier this year, stanford university student brock turner was convicted of rape but also lauded for his swimming record and avoided swimming time. >> we have seen other instances where it is a person of color or not an athlete and they are not in college. they are not as worthy of that mercy it seems. >> reporter: prosecutors thanked thct brave enough to come forward. >> this one particular victim through her courage has kept the community safer by speaking out and preventing future victims in her own way. and that's something we are very proud of too. >> reporter: a city councilman took to twitter to express his disappointment with the ruling saying we will never make progress on sexual assault if offenders go unpunnished. live tonight in boulder, lauren dispirito, cbs4 news.

took all day for the moisture to get here. when it did, we had good soaking rains. now, we have a little bit of thunder action going on along the palmer divide. we had a storm moving through within the last hour. that is moving out into the extreme eastern adams and arapahoe county. a pretty good storm holding together out here in washington county. this one had half inch diameter hail and some pretty strong winds going on with that. up to 40 miles an hour. along with some lightning. lightning was the only thing. we don't want some of that raint today. high today was 89. not as hot as it has been. same thing downtown. one point above what is normal. 88 this time of year. out there tonight, it is cool. there is almost a chill in the air. 60 degrees in the city with a little shower that went through. not as much wind now as the storm moves northeast at 3. lori finch is our weather watcher in foxfield with 66 degrees. conifer, 67.

the mountains. we will start to clear out. we will be in the upper 50s for the overnight low. looking ahead tomorrow. early sun. afternoon storms, a nice comfortable 82 for friday. the 80s continue through the weekend can scattered storms saturday. isolated sunday. monday and tuesday, pretty dry with upper 80s . so as we warm up a little bit, we will stay in the upper 80s through thursday of next week. just a slight chance each day of isolated thunderstorms.

>> the broncos have a dominant qb on the roster not apparent in the first preseason game. but the defense looking as dominant as ever at least against the bears. it was mark sanchez's night. capped by a touchdown toss. throw came under pressure. he made a throw in camp on the run. he forced a pass that was tipped and picked off. it is the one thing the broncos really don't want him to do. bu super bowl hangover. sacked the bears q bs several times and showed their depth. chicago just 130 yards all night. no points. broncos special teams in on the action as well. fowler blocked a bunt. there for the touchdown. all broncos in this one. 22-0 the final. michael john fox's bears no
defense tonight. >> no mark, i really didn't. we heard this defense talk about how they thought they could be even better than they were in 2015 and if tonight was any indication. they are certainly on that path. seven sacks, no points. it is clear the broncos defense picked up exactly where it left off in 2015. >> so, we get after the quarterback. that is what we do. we do a great job of it tonight. >> some of the guys, we just came in and we kind of wanted to pick over where we left off. >> we practiced, worked together. come out there and do what we did tonight. >> whatever you put out on the field in the nfl game, a statement, bad or negative. we showed we are going to be a
