BOSTON — It’s another clear and cool morning to start the work week after a pretty great weekend of weather. The fine stretch is going to continue for another week with only a brief break in the sunshine. High pressure is going to slip off the coast today and allow for a slow return of humidity and warmer temperatures. We haven’t been in the 80s for several days and most inland areas will approach or just exceed that mark this afternoon.
A light east wind off the water will keep the beaches cooler, but it won’t penetrate very far inland. Humidity remains quite low and unnoticeable for the most part.
Tomorrow, with a stronger breeze from the south, humidity will return along with a few more clouds later in the day. The humidity will help keep temperatures quite mild Tuesday night and you might have to put the air conditioning on although that breeze will help move the air around.
Wednesday a cold front moves into the region and increases the chance of showers during the day. It’s not until evening that showers are likely, but the risk goes up after noon. It will be quite humid before the front passes overnight and early Thursday.
If the front keeps on moving along the skies will clear and the end of the week then features a return to dry and cooler conditions. However, there is the chance the front gets stuck close to us allowing those showers and unsettled weather to linger. I’ll play it more positive for now, but the forecast could chance quite a bit over the next couple of days.
Monday: Sunny and warm with highs of 75 to 83. Warmest inland and coolest on the Cape/Islands.
Monday night: Mostly clear with a low of 52 to 62.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny and warmer. More humidity in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 80s (70s on the Cape/Islands).
Wednesday: A slight chance of showers early in the day and a better chance of showers to end the day. Warm and humid with highs of 78 to 84. There will be some sunshine mixed with clouds during the dry periods.
Thursday: Any early showers end followed by increasing sunshine. Highs in the upper 70s. Les humid.
Friday: Mostly sunny and pleasant with highs of 75 to 78.
