High pressure will continue to move offshore of the mid Atlantic
coast tonight and Tuesday. Behind it, southwest winds will blow 10
to 20 mph across our region and bring warmer than normal
temperatures through Tuesday night. Gusts to 35 mph are possible
Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Lows tonight and Tuesday night will only be in the mid 60s to low
70s. Highs Tuesday afternoon will top out in the 80s, with mid to
upper 70s along the south coast.

A cold front will approach our region from the west late Tuesday and
may trigger scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms across
western Massachusetts and western Connecticut. Showers will become
more likely Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, along with
isolated thunderstorms, as the cold front sweeps through New England.

It will become dry and sunny across the region Wednesday afternoon
as the cold front exits east of Cape Cod. Winds will become westerly
at 10 to 15 mph and temperatures will be near normal with highs in
the mid 70s to low 80s.  It be clear and seasonable Wednesday night
with lows falling back into the mid 50s to mid 60s.

Looking ahead, a dry period is on tap Thursday through Sunday as a
large area of high pressure builds east over New England.
Temperatures during this period will be slightly below normal for
this time of year.
