    After a beautiful weekend in the Big Apple, a bout of drenching thunderstorms is on the way, which will lead to a threat for flash and urban flooding.

    Showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread on Tuesday before becoming heavy at times Tuesday night.

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

    From Tuesday into Tuesday night, two to four inches of rain will fall on NYC before drier air moves in Wednesday afternoon.

    By Wednesday night, conditions will clear, and it will stay that way through the end of the week.

    Cooler and less humid air will follow for Thursday and Friday with high temperatures well below normal, in the middle 70s.

    Conditions will stay nice through the weekend with partly sunny skies and highs in the 80s on Saturday and Sunday.
