BOSTON – The National Weather Service says there is a 90% chance of rain on Friday, September 24

With that, the football game scheduled for 6;30 p.m. at Bowditch Field on Friday has been moved, and the boys soccer game against Natick High is being rescheduled.

The federal agency is calling for showers and possibly a thunderstorm on Friday, with a high of 76 degrees.

New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

There is also a possibility of a tornado, according to weather forecasters.

“Scattered showers and storm get going early this morning in what will be an unsettled day overall. With the warmth and high humidity in place, these showers and storms have plenty of water vapor to fuel off of, producing localized tropical downpours at times. Although the severe risk isn’t widespread today, it’s not out of the question that an isolated severe thunderstorm or two could get going, producing damaging wind gusts or even a brief tornado. With that said, the tornado risk is low, just not zero as the atmosphere does have some spin to it,” said WHDH-TV

Tonight, showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm before 9 p.m., and then a chance of showers and thunderstorms between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. saturdya.

New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

Rain may stick around for Saturday morning, and then it is supposed to clear up.
