    Boston: Heavy Rain Threat Develops Midweek

    By By Brian Edwards, Meteorologist

    After Boston enjoyed dry weather earlier this week, a storm system will bring the threat of flooding to the city on Wednesday.

    Rain will arrive by late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning and become heavier during the day Wednesday as low pressure develops off the New England coast.

    Some of the rain will be heavy on Wednesday and there could also be a few rumbles of thunder. High temperatures will be well below normal, only reaching the lower 70s.


    Two to four inches of rain could fall on the Boston area, leading to localized flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas.

    Commuters may even have to dodge some detours around any localized flooding problems that develop on Wednesday.

    Drier weather moves in for Thursday and Friday, though lingering cold air in the upper part of the atmosphere could generate a spotty shower either day. High temperatures both days will struggle to get out of the lower 70s.

    It'll turn warmer by the weekend with highs by Saturday reaching close to 80 degrees.
