Low pressure well offshore is pulling away this morning allowing for clearing skies. Today we return to sunshine and temperatures respond by warming to near or slightly above seasonal averages. By the middle of the week, with a strong ridge of high pressure in control, much warmer air to our west will circulate into southern New England and we are in for two or three days of very warm and somewhat more humid conditions.
Here are the details: After yesterdays mostly cloudy to overcast skies we are back in the sunshine today. There will be patches of clouds so lets call it a partly sunny day overall. High temperatures will drive into the low to mid 80s, warmest inland. Light west winds under 10 mph. At the beach expect highs near 80 degrees, light west to southwest winds, water temperatures in the mid 60s and high tide late morning, low tide late afternoon.
Tonight, partly cloudy and milder than recent nights. Lows in the upper 50s interior to near 65 in Boston.
Tuesday and Wednesday will see an increase in temperatures along with a slight increase in humidity. Mostly sunny days, highs into the mid 80s coast to upper 80s inland on Tuesday, then upper 80s to low 90s Wednesday. Light west to southwest winds. Great weather for the beach or poolside. The overnights will be fair and mild, lows falling to the mid to upper 60s. Keep in mind Boston has not reached the 90 degree mark since July 20th.
Thursday will see a cold front approaching from our northwest. Although the day will start sunny expect some afternoon cloudiness as the front gets closer to our area. There is a chance of a widely scattered shower, especially inland, otherwise partly to mostly cloudy skies prevail overnight as the front moves across the area and offshore by mid morning on Friday. Highs on Thursday in the upper 80s to 90 degrees, falling into the 60s overnight.
Mostly sunny, cooler and dry conditions prevail for the end of the work week and the start of next weekend. Highs on Friday in the upper 70s coast to low 80s inland.
