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

After temperatures flirt with the 90-degree mark and AccuWeather.com 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 bathing and the risk of storms will generally be limited to the evening and night time hours through Thursday.

During Thursday and Friday, high temperatures are projected to be in the middle 80s with lowering humidity, when compared to midweek.

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.
