Temperatures will rebound to seasonable levels into the weekend around Boston, but rain is in the offing.

Enough rain can fall over the weekend to cause flooding in poor drainage areas and along small streams.

A second batch of rain will roll in Saturday afternoon and continue into Sunday following Friday's rain.

A stiff wind may make it difficult to walk with an umbrella later Friday and again on Sunday.

In northern New England, both batches of precipitation will bring some snow or a wintry mix.

Temperatures will peak within a few degrees of 50 F Saturday and Sunday.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week are projected to bring at least partial sunshine and high temperatures trending upward into the 50s.
