Forecast: Above Average Temperatures Continue All Week

If it’s not hot this week it will be humid — sometimes it will be both.

Temperatures will approach 90 degrees again Monday, but the moisture in the air will be lower allowing for a somewhat less oppressive afternoon.  Temperatures will be three-five degrees cooler than Sunday and there is no chance of rain.

Some areas did see some significant rain showers over the weekend.  Areas which received over two inches of rain will see the most benefit, but areas which only saw half an inch or less in the rain gauge are still in desperate need of rain.

Monday will be a nice beach day. There’s zero chance of any showers and there will be lots of sunshine; Rain will stay to the south and west of New England.

Two fronts will approach the area between Tuesday and Wednesday. Each brings the chance of showers but neither brings widespread rain.

While you will undoubtedly see showers in the forecast through Wednesday most of the time will be dry.

The first frontal system will pull more humid air north again. It will feel very sticky Tuesday and Wednesday until the second system passes and lowers the humidity a bit.

If you are looking for cooler, drier air from Canada, it’s going to be at least one week or more before that is in the forecast.

The end of the week will feature above average temperatures and moderate humidity.

Today: Partly to mostly sunny, a bit less humid and hot. Highs 85-90, cooler on Cape Cod.

Tonight: Warm and a bit muggy. Lows 65-70.

Tuesday: Clouds and some sunny periods, a few showers possible. Highs 83-87.

Wednesday: Lots of clouds, some showers possible.  Highs in the low to mid 80s, still humid.

Thursday: Partly to mostly sunny, moderately humid. Highs 82-85.

Friday: Warm with sunshine. Highs in the 80s.
