    After a beautiful weekend in Philadelphia, a bout of drenching rain and thunderstorms will continue into Tuesday night which will lead to a threat for flash and urban flooding.

    Downpours will remain widespread into the evening before tapering off to showers overnight.

    The evening commute Tuesday could be very difficult. Commuters may even have to dodge some detours around any localized flooding problems that develop.

    A shower can linger Wednesday morning drier air builds in along with a mixture of clouds and sunshine Wednesday afternoon.
