A “firehose” of rain is expected to drench the tri-state area for the next few days starting Tuesday afternoon – a damp start to the official start of summer that could bring flash flooding to certain areas.

Although some sun is expected early Tuesday, it will be a mostly cloudy kind of day with temperatures just below 80 degrees.

However, there is a chance that severe weather will make its way to the metro area by Tuesday afternoon – with periods of heavy rain through Thursday. The biggest storm impacts will be felt west of New York City.

Some areas will see as much as 2 inches of rain by then – with some areas possibly experiencing as much as 3 to 4 inches. As a result, there is a chance for some flash flooding.

Thunder is also a possibility, along with gusty damaging winds, on Wednesday, a day which will also see some chilly weather as temperatures are expected to dip and reach only the high 60s.
