The threat of heavy rain has postponed a baseball game and caused the National Weather Service to issue a flood watch for the area.

York County will be under a flood watch from Monday afternoon until noon on Tuesday Sept. 6, according to the National Weather Service. 

Also, a Monday game between the York Revolution and the Long Island Ducks has been postponed. The game will be played as part of a double-header Wednesday at PeoplesBank Park, with the first game beginning at 5 p.m., the Revs said in a news release.

Despite the warm and sunny weekend, an overcast Labor Day has York, Adams and Lancaster counties under a flood watch as of 2 p.m. Monday. 

"Numerous" storm and showers will develop through the day into Tuesday morning, the website said, and they are expected to move slowly and have heavy downpour.
