    Boston: Limited Sun This Weekend; Rain Along Cape Cod

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    While clouds win out over sunshine in Boston this weekend, a washout is far from expected.

    A wedge of dry air along the I-95 corridor will set the stage for a variety of outdoor activities like when the Red Sox take on the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park and the Cupcake Walking Tour in South End and Back Bay this weekend.

    Nothing more than a brief shower will pass through with a bit of steadier rain crossing Cape Cod and the Islands.

    Canadian air with low humidity will allow temperatures to be below average for the weekend.

    Only those on the Cape or Islands will have to worry about rain ruining the weekend. A weak coastal storm grazing the East Coast will be responsible for the wet weather.

    The storm will be strong enough to cause an elevated risk of rip currents and rough surf to accompany the rain.

    The comfortable weather around Boston will hold through Monday before a significant increase in warmth and humidity occurs on Tuesday.

    AccuWeather.com meteorologists are concerned for that steamy air to trigger strong thunderstorms later Thursday.
