    NYC: Severe Storm, Flooding Risk to Start the New Week

    After a rain-free weekend for much of the New York City area, the risk of severe thunderstorms and flash flooding will ramp up quickly.

    As much cooler air plunges into the Midwest thanks to a southward trip by the Polar Vortex, warm and moist air will surge northward along the Atlantic Seaboard to start the new week.

    The storms Monday through Tuesday will bring the risk of damaging wind gusts initially but can be followed by repeating downpours and the potential for flash flooding.

    Such soaking thunderstorms may linger through Wednesday.

    The weather pattern for the new week is likely to bring extended disruptions to travel and outdoor activities along much of the Atlantic Seaboard, including the South.

    Drier and less humid air will spread into the region later in the week, holding high temperatures to slightly below normal during what is typically known as the hottest time of the year.

    The weather at Minneapolis early in the week will be more appropriate for football, rather than baseball for the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game.
