Monday will probably be the warmest day, with temperatures in the upper 60s, according to the weather service. From Tuesday through Saturday, the mercury is not expected to register daytime highs below 60. Tuesday is the only day when showers appear possible, estimated at 40 percent likely.

The unseasonably pleasant temperatures are roughly 20 degrees warmer than what Boston normally experiences at this time in March, said Bill Simpson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service.

“Normal highs for this part of March are 44 in Boston,’’ he said.

Simpson said a summerlike air mass about 20,000 feet above the region is driving the pattern.

“We’re going into the eighth consecutive month of above-average temperatures,’’ Simpson said.

For residents looking to enjoy the warmth and sunshine, the popular bicycle-sharing program Hubway is slated to restock racks with rentable rides starting Thursday, Hubway said in a statement. All stations are expected to open by April 1.

Hubway general manager Scott Mullen said in an e-mail that although contracts to expand the service are not yet final, as many as 22 new rental stations could be coming to Cambridge, in addition to four planned for Brookline and eight for Somerville.
