BARRE – A strong thunderstorm barreled through Orleans County a little after 7 p.m. It drenched the baseball fields at Barre and forced the postponement of a Midget League game between the Barre Cubs and St. Mary’s.

The Weather Service said the 10-minute “torrential downpour” could have left a ½ inch to an inch of rain.

Tuesday is forecast to be hot with a high of 90 degrees with a chance for thunderstorms and heavy rain. Wednesday is forecast to be mostly sunny with a high of 75.
