Afternoon temperatures warmed into the mid 80s to low 90s, except at the immediate coasts, where highs were in the mid 70s to low 80s. There were a few pop up showers and thunderstorms and this trend will continue into the evening hours until sunset. For tonight skies will become mostly cloudy while patches of dense fog form. It will be a warm and muggy night with lows generally in the low to mid 70s. A cold front will continue to move to the east Tuesday and will enter western Massachusetts by late in the afternoon. This front will trigger widespread showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon which will continue into Tuesday night as the front presses east. High temperatures on Tuesday will average in the 80s while southwest winds increase to 15 to 25 mph. The cold front will sweep across the region Tuesday night. Other than perhaps some lingering showers early Wednesday across southeast Massachusetts, dry weather is anticipated for the rest of the work week as high pressure builds over New England. Afternoons will be seasonably warm but with lower humidity. For the upcoming weekend, the high will shift east of our region and unsettled weather could return along with increasing humidity. $$ KAB
