Forecast: Sunshine, Warm Temperatures Continue

This article is more than 6 years old.

After a great Father’s Day of weather, things are looking to continue being quite nice much of this week. There will be some very warm conditions the next few days before a cooling trend takes place later in the week with temperatures returning to the 70s. If you live inland, temperatures through Wednesday are going to be very warm reaching well into the mid and upper 80s.

There won’t be much humidity today, but it will increase for the middle of the week. Sea breezes can help keep the coast cooler and Cape Cod will also be cooler with highs in the 70s.

There are a couple chances of rain this week, but none of them look major without any heavy rain.

Once we get into mid-June it becomes increasingly less likely, until later in the fall, that we will see more than scattered showers. This week, a typical summer pattern of lot of sunshine and a few opportunities for showers is the norm.

The second part of the week will feature a high-pressure system building in from Canada.  This will bring slightly cooler temperatures, dry air and remove the chance of showers of from the forecast. The pattern may become stuck this way for several day and take us into the upcoming weekend, but it’s just a bit early to have high confidence is the forecast that far into the future. Enjoy today. It’s going to be a wonderful one.

Monday: Sunny with a high near 86. North wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the morning.

Monday night: Clear early and then increasing clouds with a quick shower. Lows in the 50s.

Tuesday: Partly sunny and warm. Highs in the mid 80s. Cooler at the immediate coast on Cape Cod.

Wednesday: Partly sunny and warm. Chance of a scattered storm. Highs in the mid to upper 80s. Cooler on Cape Cod.

Thursday: Mostly sunny with highs between 77 to 82.

Friday: Sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
