While there will be stretches of dry weather, Sunday will prove to not be as perfect for outdoor plans around Boston as Saturday was.

Residents and visitors will once again have to keep an eye to the sky and an umbrella handy as a shower or thunderstorm will be around and threatening to briefly interfere with outdoor plans.
One such plan is the baseball game between the Red Sox and the Houston Astros at Fenway Park Sunday afternoon.
The good news is that Sunday will be far from a washout, meaning plans will likely not have to canceled or postponed.
In fact, the spotty nature of the showers and thunderstorms means that parts of the city and its suburbs will get missed and another dry day can be enjoyed. Remember, however, to seek shelter as soon as thunder is heard; you are then close enough to be struck by lightning.
The rain chance will end with the weekend as the first half of the week will feature mostly sunny days with high pressure in control.
