    Boston: Mild Sunday to Follow a Warm, Stormy Saturday

    By by Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    The January thaw will be accompanied by drenching rain and the risk of flooding Saturday afternoon and night around Boston.

    Unfortunately for fans heading to Foxboro, Mass., Saturday evening, it looks like another game to be played in windswept rain. Thunder and lightning may accompany the rain in some areas.

    In addition to the potential for urban flooding and travel delays during Saturday is the risk of ice jams farther north and west.

    Temperatures will reach unseasonably warm levels during the storm, especially Saturday evening.


    In the wake of the storm, it will turn cooler, but not colder immediately. This is because the source of the air moving in Sunday will be from the Pacific Ocean.

    Some sunshine will accompany the mild air on Sunday. However, strong winds gusting past 40 mph could cause some delays at airports in the Northeast.

    Colder air will return in stages next week with the first not due in until Wednesday or Thursday. The timing of which will depend on the development of a storm nearby that could bring snow.
