    Storms to Drench Philly at Midweek

    Surging humidity and the approach of a system from the Midwest will bring about some very drenching and potentially disruptive thunderstorms at midweek around Philadelphia.

    The window on favorable weather for outdoor plans and projects will close on Wednesday.

    Heavy showers and thunderstorms are in the offing Wednesday into Thursday morning. The rainfall during this period could be locally excessive and may trigger incidents of flash and urban flooding, as well as the associated travel delays.

    There is a chance the storms may affect the Wednesday evening game between the Phillies and Marlins at Citizens Bank Park.

    The system will bring the risk of drenching and gusty storms to a large part of the Northeast with travel delays likely on a regional basis. The storms will affect the Midwest into Tuesday night.

    Locally, a couple of locations could be hit with a popup thunderstorm as early as Tuesday afternoon.

    Another round of showers and storms may swing through on Friday.
