The New York Mets are scheduled to visit Denver this weekend for a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies. However, it also looks like wet, winter weather could well be visiting the Denver area at the same time as well.
The weather for the New York Mets-Colorado Rockies series at Coors Field is looking cold and wet
Forecasters are calling for Friday to perhaps be the diciest day of the series featuring the Colorado Rockies and New York Mets, which is slated to begin that evening (6:40 p.m. Mountain time first pitch) at Coors Field in downtown Denver. After extremely warm temperatures on Thursday, a cold front will hit the area and temperatures will plummet while the chances for precipitation will rise.
A winter storm watch has already been issued for the area, extending from Thursday night until Saturday morning. Some forecast models have up to 10 inches of snow falling in the Denver metro area on Friday, which would likely cause a postponement of Friday night’s game should the models become a reality.
The teams are also scheduled to play on Saturday night (6:10 p.m. Mountain time first pitch) and Sunday afternoon (1:10 p.m. Mountain time first pitch). Forecasts are calling for high temperatures only in the 30s on Saturday while Sunday’s highs could rebound into the mid-50s.
This is the only time this season the Mets are scheduled to visit Denver, so a doubleheader will likely try to be scheduled if Friday is postponed. However, Saturday’s cold weather may make that a tough task.
If a doubleheader can’t be played during New York’s scheduled visit, the two teams could look for a mutual off day for a Mets return visit to Denver or schedule another game when the Rockies are slated to visit Citi Field for what is already scheduled to be a four-game set in late August.
