Sunshine will return to the Boston area this weekend, but not before downpours move through Friday into Saturday.

The pattern will bring a risk of flash and urban flooding that can greatly slow travel and disrupt outdoor activities.

For fans heading to the Red Sox game Friday evening, have some rain gear handy in case a downpour develops over the ballpark with little notice. Be prepared to take cover if thunderstorms approach.

While there is a chance of showers lingering into Saturday afternoon, the period from Saturday night through Monday looks to be free of rain.

Abundant sunshine and low humidity are in the offing for Father's Day.
