Rain is returning to Boston for the second half of the week, but there is hope for a dry second half of the weekend.

During the day Thursday, rain will enhance over northern New England with spotty showers around eastern Massachusetts.

During Friday into Friday night, there is the potential for drenching downpours and locally strong thunderstorms as a front begins to push in from the Midwest. There is a risk of travel disruptions and flash flooding during this period.
