Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

The Dodgers' remaining two games in Colorado this week are in jeopardy. Rain is forecast to arrive in Denver this afternoon and continue through the rest of the week, possibly becoming snow.

Dodger manager Jim Tracy already reset the starting rotation Tuesday so that Odalis Perez would pitch against the Giants in Los Angeles on Friday instead of in Colorado on Thursday. But the weather might have done it for him anyway.

The Dodgers have two more trips to Colorado: a four-game series July 26-29 and a three-game series September 17-19. Any makeup games, of course, would mean an all-hands-on-deck situation at the Coors Field hitters' haven.

If tonight's game is on, watch to see whether Paul Lo Duca's prediction, made to the Times after Hideo Nomo's last start, comes true.

"He's struggling a little with his timing right now while trying to get back to where he was," Lo Duca told the Times. "But that last inning, he threw a couple of fastballs at 88, 90 [mph]. He made some big pitches when he had to. ... I looked at him and he looked back at me and said, 'My timing finally got there.' I really look for him to throw lights out the next time out."

Update: As Bob Timmermann notes in the comments, there was that one lights-out game for Nomo in bad weather at Coors.
