    After a beautiful weekend, a bout of drenching thunderstorms will lead to a threat for flash and urban flooding.

    Showers and thunderstorms will be heavy at times into Tuesday evening. Rainfall amounts over 1.00 inch have already been reported in the Washington D.C. area, especially south and east of the city.

    Further northeast, more than 5.00 inches of rain has been reported at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. Also traffic through Harbor Tunnel has been delayed due to flooding.

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

    Following the threat for heavy rainfall, drier air will build in later Tuesday night into Wednesday with nothing more than a spotty shower.

    Cooler and less humid air will follow for Thursday and Friday with high temperatures below normal, in the lower 80s.
