Around noon today, the National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for all five boroughs of New York City, with rain ready to come down on us sometime this afternoon, and "a thunderstorm capable of producing hail and damaging winds in excess of 60 mile per hour." The perfect place to be for this weather event? The Intrepid. The ship still plans to host the Party On The Intrepid event tonight, telling us it's going on "rain or shine."

Bring your rubber-soled shoes and a reasonably-sized umbrella... though according to this weather report, the hail threat may be over soon.
