Today's Weather: Turning Warmer The Rest Of The Week

We have warm temperatures over the next several days, with readings in the 80s over inland areas. It will be cooler on Cape Cod and the islands in the south coast. There might be a couple of showers during the afternoon today and even a rumble of thunder, but I'm not expecting much in the way of precipitation.

As we head through tomorrow, it looks like a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine. If you are off from work, it wouldn't be a bad day to head to the beach with temperatures getting into the 80s – of course, cooler at the water.

We are going to close out the work week on a warm note. There's an additional chance for showers and storms and Friday, and we'll also see an increase in humidity.

Saturday there is a continued chance of showers. A cold front crossing the area will usher in cooler and drier air for the second part of the weekend, when readings will stay in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

Of note: a third tropical storm has now formed in the Gulf of Mexico. Christobal is likely to impact the Gulf Coast sometime this weekend as a strong tropical storm or perhaps a minimal hurricane. We have never seen three named storms this early.
