Secure Halloween Decor, Long Period Of Windy Weather Ahead For Colorado

DENVER (CBS4) – If you have Halloween decor outside you may want to make sure it is extra secure Tuesday. That’s because starting Tuesday night and into Wednesday we have several rounds of strong and gusty wind on the way.

Some of the strongest gusts will likely be in the mountains and foothills of Boulder County and Larimer County where the National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Watch. The current forecast calls for gusts to approach 80 mph at times.

A shift in the jet stream will drive the wind over the next few days. There is an area of low pressure currently above Washington that will move to the east between now and Thursday, carving out a large trough of lower pressure.

At the surface a strong cold front will race through Colorado late Wednesday with much colder air. The pressure gradient associated with this temperature change will help drive the strong winds.

Unfortunately it appears this will be a dry cold front with only a small chance for a few stray rain or snow showers along the Continental Divide. After a few chilly days it will warm up over the weekend before another cold front arrives for Sunday bringing more strong wind gusts.

Acura teases the 2021 MDX’s interior just ahead of its reveal

Acura is teasing its upcoming next-generation MDX via some photos of the interior with lots of pretty colours.

The brand has already given us a small teaser of the exterior via a YouTube video, showing that the new MDX will borrow styling from Acura’s new S-Type sedan, which means more pronounced creases and more machismo.

Acura says the new MDX’s interior will be the “most premium and performance-focused” version of the SUV, and that it earned its “elevated status” as the brand’s flagship. Previously, the RLX was the brand’s “flagship,” but after Acura only sold 1,000 units, it got demoted.

Apparently Acura will reveal the MDX “Prototype,” but we’re guessing it’s going to look almost exactly like the production version. However, it won’t look anything like these photos in real life, mainly because you won’t have a team of people carrying around neon lights every where you go to make your MDX look good.

But what you will get in real life is three rows of seating, including second-row captain’s chairs. All seats feature quilted contrast stitching, and the front seats get a massage function. The dashboard also receives an upgrade in the form of “hand-wrapped” French seams.

The car is set to be revealed on October 14, where we’ll get a better look at the interior without all the pretty lights.

Striking New MDX Interior Design Teased Ahead of Global Debut

The reimagined MDX cabin, previewed in a video released today, sets a new high-watermark for Acura interior design and craftsmanship, communicating performance and sophistication in every detail. The new wider and lower instrument panel, designed for both elegance and a clear view of the road ahead, compliments the new look of MDX and is accented with authentic open-pore wood and hand-wrapped leather with French stitching.

Next-generation Acura sport seats offer a more sculpted form with curvilinear quilting in all three rows, along with gradient perforation, and high-contrast stitching and piping. First-class seating comfort, afforded by a wider body design, is enhanced with multi-mode front-seat massage functionality.

Signature Acura technologies debuting in the new MDX Prototype will include the Acura Precision Cockpit™ all-digital driver’s meter, an ultra-wide full-HD center display, and a next-level, 25-speaker “Signature Edition” ELS Studio 3D® premium audio system with integrated LED ambient lighting.

Coming on the heels of the highly successful Acura RDX and the just-launched 2021 TLX sport sedan, the all-new MDX will represent the brand’s most ambitious and far-reaching product redesign since the launch of the second-generation NSX hybrid electric supercar.

Trump says ‘real test’ lies ahead in his COVID-19 fight

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said from his hospital room that the next few days will be the “real test” of his treatment for COVID-19, after a series of contradictory messages from the White House caused widespread confusion about his condition.

In a four-minute video posted on Twitter on Saturday from his hospital suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, a tired-looking Trump said he was feeling “much better.”

“Over the next period of a few days, I guess that’s the real test, so we’ll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days,” Trump said into the camera, seated in front of an American flag and wearing a jacket and open-necked shirt.

Trump’s illness has upended the campaign ahead of the Nov. 3 presidential election and cast a spotlight on the president’s handling of the pandemic. The Republican president is trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden in opinion polls.

Differing assessments of Trump’s health from administration officials earlier on Saturday left it unclear how ill the president had become since he tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday night.

A White House team of doctors said on Saturday morning Trump’s condition was improving and that he was already talking about returning to the White House.

Within minutes, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows gave reporters a less rosy assessment, saying, “The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We’re still not on a clear path to a full recovery.”

Meadows, whose initial comments were delivered on condition that he not be identified, altered his tone hours later, telling Reuters that Trump was doing “very well” and that “doctors are very pleased with his vital signs.”

The remarks came hours after differing assessments of his health from administration officials left it unclear how ill the president had become since he tested positive for the new coronavirus on Thursday night, a matter of enormous public concern.

A White House team of doctors said on Saturday morning that Trump’s condition was improving and that he was already talking about returning to the White House. One doctor said Trump told them, “I feel like I could walk out of here today.”
