DENVER (AP) _ A treacherous mix of rain, snow and ice has snarled traffic and made for a miserable fall weekend across the Rocky Mountain Region.

It also caused Major League Baseball to postpone tonight's playoff game between the Colorado Rockies and the Philadelphia Phillies.

About 2 inches of snow in the Denver area was blamed for hundreds of minor car accidents, plus a more serious pileup on Interstate 25 near Colorado Springs.

The National Weather Service says record low temperatures were
set in many Colorado towns today. The temperature at Denver
International Airport was 17 degrees this morning, 8 degrees below
the record low of 25 degrees set in 1905.

The snow is expected to taper off today, with temperatures bouncing into the low 50s in Denver tomorrow.

Game 3 of the National League Division series has been rescheduled for Sunday night. Game 4 will be Monday and game 5, if necessary, will be played as scheduled on Tuesday in Philadelphia.
