    Janice Huff's evening forecast for Tuesday, June 18.

    Scattered, heavy thunderstorms bringing gusty winds, intense lightning and downpours threatened to cause more street and highway flooding for parts of the already soaked tri-state area Tuesday, forecasters say.  

    The strongest storms moved through the afternoon and evening, though the wet weather will linger through the early overnight hours, meteorologists say.

    All flash flood warnings and advisories were expired or canceled by 9:30 p.m.

    The chance for more rain comes as Central Park is bordering on the June record for rainfall at 9.61 inches. The previous record is 10.27 inches for the month.

    Stormy weather drenched parts of the tri-state area Monday, flooding underpasses and low-lying streets after quick bursts of torrential rain. Tuesday's storms weren't quite as intense as the ones Monday, but they are expected to be more widespread. 

    The weather is expected to improve Wednesday, with less humid temperatures in the low 70s and mostly sunny skies.

    Temperatures creep back into the high 70s for the rest of the week and forecasters say the outlook for the weekend looks sunny and warm as well with little to no chance of showers.
