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

The risk of showers and thunderstorms will continue on Wednesday, before a pocket of dry weather settles in on Thursday.

Highs will slide slightly below average Wednesday reaching into the upper 70s. A high in the lower 80s is typical for late June.

Thunderstorms are expected across the area once again, some of which may produce heavy rainfall.

"Wednesday will not be overly warm, in fact, high temperatures will likely be a bit below average, but it will remain quite humid and active," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Randy Adkins said.

"The threat of severe weather is not all that great, but the threat for flash flooding will certainly be present."
