    Boston: Thunderstorms to Hold Off Until Sunday

    By By Kristina Pydynowski, senior meteorologist

    Saturday will be the better day for weekend outdoor activities around Boston, with a shower or thunderstorm set to return on Sunday.

    Instead of umbrellas, residents and visitors will want to grab sunglasses and apply sunscreen before heading out to enjoy Saturday's rain-free and partly sunny day.

    Anyone who opts to wear long-sleeved shirts and light jackets in the early morning will be changing or putting the jackets away by the afternoon with temperatures set to rebound to the upper 70s.

    Low humidity will make the day even more enjoyable to be outside.


    An increase in clouds Saturday night will be a sign that the pleasant weather starting the weekend will not last.

    A shower or thunderstorm is set to return on Sunday as a storm system drops down from Canada.

    While Sunday will be far from a washout, any shower or thunderstorm threatens to briefly interfere with outdoor activities and sporting events.

    One such activity will be the baseball game between the Red Sox and Houston Astros at Fenway Park Sunday afternoon.


    Another day more reminiscent of early September with a good deal of sunshine will unfold on Monday. A storm system passing by to the south may quickly return a shower Tuesday afternoon.
