    Play video Weather across the Northeast is detailed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

    Humidity will build around New York City and allow drenching thunderstorms to return at midweek.

    Those with outdoor plans and projects should take advantage of the dry stretch of weather through Tuesday.

    Humidity will increase enough by Tuesday afternoon to allow spotty storms to form, mainly west of the city.

    Dry weather should hold for one more day around I-95 and the beaches.

    Wednesday, the combination of the sticky air and a storm system moving in from the Midwest will bring numerous thunderstorms to the New York City area.

    The most active time of Wednesday is likely to be the afternoon when some of the thunderstorms will bring the potential for blinding and flooding downpours.

    Commuters may be faced with a slow ride home, while flight delays are possible. The storminess could also interfere with the Mets game between the Oakland Athletics at Citi Field Wednesday evening.

    The speed at which the storm system departs will determine whether or not Thursday is free of showers and thunderstorms.

    High temperatures through the week will be in the 80s. A high in the lower 80s is typical of late June.
