DENVER – Severe weather across the metro area forced the Rockies to postpone their game against the World Series champion Chicago Cubs at Coors Field on Monday.

A strong storm brought heavy rain, wind and hail to the Denver metro, covering the field just hours before the game was scheduled to start.

The game was scheduled to start at 6:40 p.m., but was postponed until Tuesday. The teams will play a split doubleheader with the first game starting at 12:10 p.m., then the regularly scheduled game at 6:40 p.m.

Separate tickets are required for each game.

The hail with the strong storms caused widespread damage across the metro area, damaging windows and covering highways and parking lots. It also forced the closure of Colorado Mills Mall in Lakewood.
