Storm Alert: Pelham schools, Pelham Rec and Playful Wonders cancel afterschool programs

National Weather Service radar shows the storm enveloping the Pelham region.

All Pelham Union Free School District, Pelham Rec and Playful Wonders afterschool activities were cancelled Tuesday because of the severe storm with heavy rain and winds forecast, the district said in an 11:32 a.m. email.

Academy period for middle and high school students were still to be held, but the district spelling bee was postponed until Thursday.

With the intense rain predicted from tonight through the morning, the school district said it’s monitoring conditions and will decide if a two-hour delay or some other change to Wednesday’s schedule is required “due to flooding or other hazardous conditions.”

The National Weather Service has issued an area flood watch, coastal flood advisory and a high wind warning from tonight into tomorrow morning.
