Colorado Rockies Home Opener Could Be Coldest In Franchise History

•, By Chris Spears

This year's home opener will be a stark contrast. In fact, it could end up being the coldest home opener in franchise history.

Friday's forecast calls for a chance of rain and snow with a high somewhere around 40°F.

Right now it looks like the rain and snow would start late Thursday and end late Friday morning which would be excellent timing since first pitch isn't until 2:10 pm.

Our fingers are crossed that nothing changes with the current timeline for precipitation!

Here is a list of high and low temperatures for opening day in Denver…

April 9, 1993 – High 72, Low 40 (beat Expos)

April 4, 1994 – High 63, Low 26 (lost to Phillies)

April 26, 1995 – High 40, Low 27 (beat Mets)

April 8, 1996 – High 73, Low 39 (lost to Cubs)

April 7, 1997 – High 55, Low 21 (beat Reds)

April 7, 1998 – High 49, Low 32 (lost to Cardinals)

April 12, 1999 – High 71, Low 31 (lost to Padres)
