    Heavy Rain to Avoid Boston Through Weekend

    A wedge of dry air will slowly erode later this week and may allow spotty showers to survive the trip into Boston from the Midwest.

    At this time, it appears the greatest risk of downpours heavy enough to cause flash and urban flooding will stay well west and south of New England.

    However, people driving or flying to and from the Midwest and mid-Atlantic may encounter some delays.

    The greatest chance of showers in Boston is Friday into Saturday.

    During next week, there are signs of some very warm weather for a few days, especially during the second half of the week. Temperatures may approach 90 degrees.

    AccuWeather will also be watching for an uptick in tropical activity during the last part of August. September is typically the most active month in terms of tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin.
