DENVER -- Temperatures surge into the mid 60s today in Denver, Boulder, Loveland and Fort Collins.  We'll start with sunshine then turn partly cloudy this afternoon.

The mountains start sunny then turn cloudy with highs in the 40s and 50s.  The snowmelt starts in the mountain valleys.

Friday looks even warmer near 70 across the Front Range with partly cloudy skies.  I'm also including a 10 percent chance of a rain shower late in the day.

The mountains could see an isolated rain/snow shower.

The Rockies home opener looks like perfect baseball weather with partly to mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures. It will be 67 degrees at first pitch and 69 for the seventh inning stretch.
