    NYC: Downpours, Storms to Hit at Midweek

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    Showers and thunderstorms will drench the New York City area and may cause disruptions Wednesday into Thursday.

    The combination of a front moving in from the Midwest and building humidity will lead to downpours and locally gusty thunderstorms from late Wednesday afternoon into Thursday midday.

    The storms could pack enough rain to slow travel and cause incidents of flash and urban flooding.

    The storminess could interfere with the game between the Athletics and Mets at Citi Field Wednesday evening. There is a chance that downpours will linger into part of Thursday afternoon for fans planning on watching the U.S. versus Germany World Cup match outdoors.

    As a consolation, enough dry air is forecast to filter in to tone down the risk of showers and thunderstorms greatly from Friday into Sunday. Most areas during this time will be free of rain, but there is a remote chance of a popup downpour in the afternoon and evening hours.
