A sunny, comfortable week on tap

The month should end beautifully, with an appearance from the sun likely every day this week into the weekend.

Today will be partly sunny, as a cold front moves across the region, possibly triggering an isolated shower across Eastern Massachusetts. Temperatures should hover in the low 80s, with high humidity levels diminishing by the evening, according to the National Weather Service.

“Today will be a little sticky, but that will end as a cold front comes tonight, bringing a dry Canadian air mass,” said Charlie Foley, weather service meteorologist.


The chance of precipitation for Boston today is 20 percent.

Strong thunderstorms could develop south of Boston this afternoon and a flood advisory has been issued for parts of Boston and surrounding towns that will remain in effect 3 p.m., the weather service said.

But tonight will be clear, with temps dropping to around 60 degrees, according to the weather service.

Tuesday is when the pristine weather will show itself. Temperatures will be slightly cooler than normal, with a high for the day of 86 degrees. Skies should be sunny statewide, with a slight west wind developing through the day.

Wednesday should be a carbon copy of Tuesday. Sunny skies should cover most of the state with temperatures around 85 degrees. Dewpoints for the day will remain low, in the 50s. Temperatures will drop into the 60s Wednesday night, with skies staying clear.


The start to Thursday will continue the pattern of warm, sunny weather. Temperatures will hover in the low 80s. Some showers and thunderstorms will likely develop late Thursday and continue into Friday.

“Thursday will be the transition day,” Foley said. “Things will be mostly sunny early, with a mixture of sun and clouds in the afternoon.”

Friday will see temperatures in the mid-80s, with humidity levels rising. Sporadic rain is possible statewide throughout Friday. Sunny, dry weather should return for the weekend, according to the weather service.
