Gold-medal baseball weather update

ENDICOTT — Big thanks to my colleagues in the information center (you might know it as the newsroom) for passing along the message: The gold-medal baseball game is currently delayed because of weather.As you can see, the tarp is on the mound and home plate here at Union-Endicott High School, as the rain continues to pour.

There was a delay in an earlier game here today due to thunder and lightning; and we've got that, too, here this evening to accompany the precipitation.As you can see from the above map, compliments of the Weather Channel, much of the state is experiencing showers. On their Web site, the Weather Channel announced a severe thunderstorm warning until 8 p.m.

You know you're in for it when the Weather Channel Web site tells you this: IF YOU ARE IN THE PATH OF THIS STORM... SEEK SHELTER INDOORS AND STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS! (And that's a direct quote — capital letters and all — copied and pasted from their site.)

So sit tight, baseball fans, as we may be in for a long night!
