After drenching thunderstorms and showers soak the region early in the week, drier weather will move in by for the later half of the week.

A few showers and thunderstorms will rumble through the Harrisburg area Tuesday evening. Locally heavy downpours will be possible with these storms.

The evening commute Tuesday could be very difficult, especially if folks are traveling eastward. Commuters may even have to dodge some detours around any localized flooding problems that develop.

Showers will linger into early Wednesday morning before drier air moves in during the afternoon.
