Forecasters warn of rainy weekend

Areas west of Boston were under flash flood warnings for much of the afternoon and early evening as thunderstorms crossed through the region Friday in advance of what could be a damp weekend.

Bill Simpson, a weather service meteorologist, said this morning that wet weather is likely on Saturday, mainly in the early afternoon. Simpson said it will “probably not” be a washout, but there will likely be “periods of steady rain,” especially across Southeastern Massachusetts. Temperatures will be cooler, only reaching the mid-70s.

Sunday will be “a little bit warmer, but it’ll still be cool,” Simpson said. Sunday is also expected to be rainy, mainly in the afternoon again.

The rain is “not a big concern,” Simpson said, but the weekend won’t be “quite as nice as it could be.”

The rains from the weekend could persist into Monday morning, but should clear by the afternoon, with sunny skies expected Tuesday, the weather service said.
