The fourth week of September isn't the likely pick of the office for a vacation, but if you are off this week, it's going to be a nice one.
Monday morning we find high pressure moving into the region as the humidity begins to drop. While it might feel a bit sticky early, it will become dry and breezy the balance of the day with some puffy clouds developing in the afternoon.
Temperatures will reach the 70-degree mark or a bit higher east of Worcester.
A cool night is ahead with lower 40s for many and some upper 30s, I am not expecting a frost, but it will be chilly enough for a jacket tomorrow morning.
As dry weather remains in control Tuesday abundant sunshine results. Once again it will be around 70 in the afternoon, warmest along the coast and a bit cooler in the Worcester hills and along the Route 2 corridor.
The coolest day of the week is Wednesday when everyone will remain in the 60s for the afternoon after a dry cool start. A moderating trend ensues with a return to 70s by the end of the week and a possibility of 80 or higher over the weekend. There is actually an outside chance we could see record highs if everything works out. What a week for a vacation — too bad most of us are working.
Monday: Mostly sunny with a high around 70. Winds gusty at times.
Monday night: Mostly clear with a low around 40.
Tuesday: Sunny with a high near 70.
Wednesday: Sunny with a high in the mid to upper 60s.
Thursday: Mostly sunny with a high near 70.
Friday: Sunny with a high near 75.
