Metro Boston, North Shore and Metro West: The rough and tumble weather of Monday has been driven offshore as a slow moving cold front pushes out to sea today. This will set the stage for improving weather conditions with a refreshing air mass coming into play. Some early morning valley fog will quickly burn off with skies turning mostly sunny. A few afternoon clouds around. Much less humid with high temperatures in the mid 70s on the beach, near 80 degrees elsewhere. West to southwest winds 5 to 15 mph.
A few clouds Tuesday night and comfortable. Invigorating, cool air with lows in the 50s. Light winds.
More of the same for Wednesday with mainly sunny skies in the morning, becoming partly sunny through the afternoon and evening. Highs in the mid 70s coast to about 80 inland. Light winds, turning onshore in the afternoon along the shore. Overnight lows Wednesday night from the mid 50s interior to low 60s along the coastal plain.
The cold front that passed through here last night will have stalled well offshore during the week. It may become a player in our weather once again as we get toward the end of the work week. However, the frontal boundary should remain far enough offshore to allow another very pleasant day on Thursday. A mix of sun and clouds, highs from the upper 70s to low 80s.
Thursday night, partly cloudy and pleasant. Lows about 60.
Then on Friday clouds begin to increase as the frontal boundary retrogrades westward and low pressure ripples along the front. Highs upper 70s to low 80s.
Saturday and Sunday may see more clouds than sun, especially on Saturday with a risk of showers. Highs around 80 with an increase in the humidity levels as well.
North Shore beach outlook:
Tuesday: Mostly to partly sunny, less humid and cooler. High temperatures low 70s Cape Ann north, mid 70s south of Cape Ann. Winds southwest 8 to 15 mph. UV Index high. Moderate chance of rip currents with a 2 to 4 foot surf. Water temperatures in the mid 60s. High tide early afternoon.
