Forecast: Highs In The 90s Through Wednesday

In a summer that hasn't seen much in the way of hot weather, the next two days will bring some of the warmest. Our highs will approach 90 Tuesday and Wednesday — with the best chance for Boston to hit 90 for the fifth time this summer being Wednesday.

As a cold front pushes through the area late Wednesday afternoon, a thunderstorm could pop-up for a brief time — though the risk is small and the window for them to occur will be short. The air will be humid and with the high temperatures it's going to be a wonderful beach day.

Thursday brings a return to the drier and more comfortable air. Highs will reach near 80, but with much less humidity, especially in the afternoon. A great night of cool sleeping weather follows and then leads us to a pair of cooler days Friday and Saturday, with highs in the 70s.

There is some risk of shower activity on Sunday, but this should not linger into Monday. That day is looking nice.

Cristobal continues to remain well offshore and while it may bring some larger swells to our coastline late this week, that would be the only impact to the area.

Tuesday: Lots of sunshine and very warm. Highs 85 to 90.

Tuesday night: Clear and rather warm. Lows in the mid 60s. Cooler in some of the valleys.

Wednesday: Sunny, hot and somewhat humid. A thunderstorm possible in the afternoon. Highs around 90, cooler at the beaches.

Thursday: Sunny, drier and cooler. Highs near 80.

Friday: Sunny and pleasant. Highs in the mid 70s.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high in the upper 70s.
