A warm, sunny start, but showers likely midweek

This week is off to a sunny start, but showers aren’t too far away.

“It looks Tuesday night into Friday we’ll have a risk of showers,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Thompson. “It doesn’t look like it’s going to be raining all of the time, but we will have a risk for showers and more clouds.”

Monday will be 10 degrees warmer than average, with high temperatures cresting at 81 degrees. Conditions should be sunny and dry, with skies staying clear in the evening. Low temperatures should drop to 60 degrees overnight.


Tuesday should start out mostly sunny, with high temperatures in the mid-70s. Some clouds should arrive in the afternoon, bringing a chance of showers and thunderstorms in Western Massachusetts. Some rain could fall in Boston overnight as low temperatures drop to 59 degrees.
