There will also be more wind on Wednesday, mainly in the afternoon. Wind speeds for Denver will reach 15-30 mph again for a period. Some stronger gusts to 40-45 mph may roll out on the Eastern Plains.

There will be much less wind to end the workweek. There will be plenty of sunshine each day through Friday. And, weather for the Rockies’ home and season openers at Coors Field looks awesome, with game-time temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Great day for baseball!

Temperatures will be warmer in the 70s over the weekend. That will be followed by increasing clouds, some rain showers and cooler temperatures to start next week.
