Looks like they will be able to get in in 1.5 - 2 hours this PM

. . . before having to take about an hour break, based on this radar information.

Of course, there’s always the chance that the line of storms will dissipate or break up and miss Athens by the time they get that far.

Rain is about to hit Athens. Prepare for a delay before long.

Good news is that the most severe part of the storm split and looks like just rain now . . . which they can play through. Precip ought to be by them altogether (for 2 hours or so, at least) in another 30 minutes or so.

And as soon as I post that . . . the lightning comes and they call a delay.

As I said, it ought to be gone in 30 minutes or so. I’ll bet we’re playing ball within 45 minutes or so.

I checked the AccuWeather site for Athens a little while back and it said something like “a break in the rain in 67 minutes”. Not 65, or 70, but 67. That kind of false precision is at once amusing and irritating.

You can play it a lite shower but the lightening is a whole different story! This could be a late day!

Meanwhile, the timeline I guessed at in the OP turned out to be about right. Usually doesn’t work out like that when you’re guessing about the weather.
