UPDATE: Weather postpones Warner Robins Little League regional until Tuesday

CEREDO-KENOVA, W.Va. — The weather was wild but not so wonderful in West Virginia on Monday.

Rain delayed the start of the day's second game in the Little League Southeastern Regional at Mitch Stadium, and it twice interrupted Warner Robins' game with Alabama. The second interruption was the last one.

Warner Robins and Alabama will continue at noon on Tuesday, with West Virginia and Tennessee to follow at 2:30 p.m. The consolation games, with teams still to be determined, will take place afterward.

At about 8 p.m., radar indicated that the weather would not improve enough to continue play tonight with a string of strong rain moving along Interstate 64 for several hours.

The weather.com forecast for the area on Tuesday is for a partly cloudy morning with afternoon isolated and scattered thunderstorms, a 40-percent chance of precipitation from the afternoon through the evening.

Warner Robins held a 6-0 lead at the time of the stoppage, but Alabama had runners on second and third with one out.

Warner Robins scored five in the first, two on Blake Jackson's rocket homer to left.

The consolation round was to begin Tuesday at 10 a.m. with another game at 1 p.m. The semifinals are scheduled for 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday with an off-day on Thursday and the championship at 8 p.m. Friday.
