the canadian border north. there is a front that will come in closer, but not that close. a chance for a pop-up shower or thunderstorm greater in areas well north and west of the boston later tomorrow than in boston or points south but there is moisture to the south down here, and some of that will make a run at us on friday. how far north will it get? it's still a little bit tough to say. it's been a pattern that's been tough to get significant rain around here as you well know. in the meantime you have plenty of sunshine f evening, a few showers and thunderstorms could pop up especially north and west. then that southern moisture makes a run during friday into friday night. different models showing different things. some showing heavy rain near the south coast and the cape but taking some good rains into boston as well, before it exits overnight friday night to set us up with some sunshine on saturday. here's another look at what could happen showing quite a slug of rain that moves in,
5:19 pm
by early saturday. so how much rain can we get? different models showing different things. there is just one computer model showing over an inch in boston and like two to three inches in parts of worcester county into eastern connecticut and northwest rhode island. sometimes it's feast or famine and believe it or not, if that heavier slug gets in here we may actually have localized street flooding developing friday afternoon and friday evening. check out the next seven days. after that threat, we're back in business saturday nice summer weather but the 90-degree readings, that seems like that will not be in the cards through the early part of next week and there could be another system later in the weekend and maybe, let's say, late sunday into early monday, that could give us some more meaningful rain possibly. we finally have our eyes focused on possibly getting some significant rain here. we'll stay on top of that for you. >> good weather to dump a bucket of ice on your head, i think. >> i've already done that.
