    Drenching Rain to Soak Boston Through Midweek

    While the week started on a dry note, a slow-moving storm has the potential to unload a couple of inches of rain on the Boston area through midweek.

    The same storm responsible for severe weather and tornadoes over the Central and Southern states will send periods of rain into New Englandinto Thursday.

    While the rain will alleviate brushfire conditions, it can bring problems on the other end of the spectrum, such as travel delays from flash and urban flooding, as well as poor visibility.

    During Thursday, the flow will become more west to southwesterly. From this direction, the chilly flow from the Atlantic Ocean will be turned off. However, eventually cooler air from the Midwest will filter east of the Appalachians this weekend.

    The reversal of the winds will not end the chance of rain. The pattern could allow locally heavy, gusty thunderstorms to come calling on Thursday.

    Spotty showers from the ancient storm over the Midwest will settle over the region this weekend.
