Forecast: Time To Put Away The Air Conditioner

This week isn't going to be a warm and summery week like we just had. However, on balance, this is still going to be a good week of weather and great to be outside. The humidity levels will be comfortable and the nights will be good for sleeping.

Unless you have a very low tolerance for even one day of humidity, I feel you should be able to take out the window air conditioning units at this point in the month.

Sunshine prevails all day today after a coolish start to the morning. While certainly not frosty today, there is a frost advisory across northern Maine this morning, a sign of things to come.

A weak system passing to our south will bring some cloudiness to Cape Cod later Tuesday and early Tuesday night. Any significant wet weather should stay over the ocean, but there is a small risk of showers. Temperatures will be seasonable.

A bit of humidity arrives later Thursday ahead of our next weather system. Temperatures will moderate a bit prior to the weekend. Once the front passes however it will turn cooler and feel more like fall Saturday and Sunday. Many spots will stay in the upper 60s much of Saturday and Sunday afternoon, but with abundant sunshine it will be perfect for all outdoor activities. Have a great week.

Monday: Sunny and cooler with highs in the lower to mid 70s.

Monday night: Mostly clear with lows in the lower to mid 50s.

Tuesday: A blend of clouds and sunshine. A slight risk of showers, mostly south of the Mass. Pike. Highs of 70 to 75.

Wednesday: Partly sunny with a high of 70 to 75.

Thursday: Lots of clouds and milder. Highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Friday: Mostly sunny and warm with highs of 75 to 79.
