Stormy end to the week

Slow improvement for the weekend

FINALLY THE FRONT

A slow moving cold front that we’ve been watching all week arrives Friday. The heaviest rain will be draped across western Massachusetts in the morning, and slowly moves east throughout the day. Some thunderstorms are possible and we will be monitoring for a few that could be strong to severe with some damaging wind. Ahead of the front, it’s going to be warm and humid with temperatures in the upper 70s. The front will stay parked over the coast through Saturday bringing the risk for more showers. There is a FLASH FLOOD WATCH for areas west of Worcester County through noon Friday due to slow tropical downpours. The severe risk is less from Worcester to the coast.

WEEKEND IMPROVEMENTS

Rain could be slow to clear the coast on Saturday. Clouds and showers are most likely in southeast MA with sun to the northwest in the afternoon. In the end it will all depend on where the front stalls.

Sunday is the pick of the weekend! A fair amount of sunshine will prevail with highs in the 70s. Things are looking good for the Patriots game at Gillette stadium, you can watch that game here on Boston25!
