Forecast: Summer Weather Continues

A warm week, actually warmer than any week in August, continues. The humid air will be with us through Tuesday night.

High pressure offshore continues to pump a very tropical air mass into the region. This air is actually giving us the warmest week we have experienced since July.

There is a slight risk for a shower this afternoon as temperatures reach their peak around 2 p.m. Anytime you have highs in the upper 80s with so much humidity showers are possible.

Tonight a cold front will pass through the region. This will bring a chance of storms. Some of the storms could contain strong gusty winds and heavy rain.

The humidity will fall tomorrow during the day, and, while it will be warm, it won't be as muggy. A more comfortable air mass means it will be easier to sleep tomorrow night.

Warmer-than-average readings continue Thursday through Saturday as well. Later Saturday a cold front will bring another chance of showers along with a blend of clouds and sunshine. If you are looking for more typical September temperatures you'll have to wait until Sunday. By the end of the weekend highs will stay in the 70s — until then it's summer weather. Have a great day.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny and warm. A small risk of a thunderstorm in the afternoon. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Tuesday night: An evening thunderstorm — otherwise warm and muggy. Lows near 70 in Boston and upper 60s in the suburbs.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, turning drier. Highs in the lower 80s.

Thursday: Sunny with a high of 80 to 85.

Friday: Sunny and warm with a high of 80 to 85.

Saturday: A blend of clouds and sunshine. A few afternoon showers with highs in the 80s.
