Rain arrives, with a chance for thunderstorms





Saturdaywill be a wet one.

Showers are likely through the day in Greater Boston with the possibility of thunderstorms and heavy rain, according to the National Weather Service. A flash flood watch is in effect until Sunday morning.

In the city, the heaviest rain is most likely around 2 p.m., as the system moves northward, according to Lenore Correia, a meteorologist with the weather service.

“It’s moving quite slow and dropping lots of water,” she said.

Sunday is expected to be rainy, but the chance of heavy showers is less than Saturday, Correia said.


Temperatures will be cooler with expected highs around 73 Saturday and 76 Sunday, according to forecasters. Patchy fog is possible both days, and the rest of the week will likely be similar, forecasters said.

“Unfortunately it’s not going to be the best beach week,” said Correia.

A slight warmup is expected Tuesday, however, with a high in the low 80s and then the mid-80s are likely the rest of the week.

Thursday is the only day without a chance of rain into the weekend, she said.

“It’s a stationary front that’s sitting over our area and going to keep unstable weather over our area,” Correia said. “There’s nothing really forcing the airmass off of us.”
