Locally gusty, drenching storms will fire in the Boston area at midweek but will be followed by a reduction in heat and humidity.

After temperatures flirt with the 90-degree-F mark and RealFeel® temperatures peak well into the 90s once again, storms will approach from the northwest and build nearby.

According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek, "Most storms will stop short of being severe, but there is a risk of isolated storms downing some trees, causing power outages and producing flash flooding."

For people heading to the beach, each day will be warm enough for swimming and the risk of storms will generally be limited to the evening and night times hours through Thursday.

Evening games through Wednesday at Fenway Park could be affected by the storms.

During Thursday and Friday, high temperatures are projected to be in the lower 80s F with lower humidity, when compared to midweek. However, compared to pushes of cooler air in recent weeks, the outbreak later this week will be less noticeable.

After another temperature surge this weekend into early next week, there is the chance of a significant push of cool air during the middle and latter part of next week.
