    Temperatures bounce back to near-normal as high pressure crests overhead. Dry and pleasant weather today with highs reaching into the mid to upper 70s.

    A few fair weather clouds around by the afternoon with sea breezes developing at the coast. High-level clouds increase overnight as an area of low pressure from the Great Lakes.

    Expecting a mostly dry night with a few showers across western Massachusetts and Vermont. Lows dip into the upper 50s to low 60s. Another weather system moves in Thursday with showers and thunderstorms around.

    Some thunderstorms may become strong as humidity builds. A cold front traverses across the region on Friday with an area of high pressure nosing in behind it.

    As the front moves through, expecting some showers and thunderstorms to fire during the afternoon. Otherwise, partly sunny skies prevail as highs crest into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees south and low to mid 70s north.

    The forecast gets a little tricky into Friday night as the cold front begins to stall south of New England. This may help an area of low pressure to develop into Saturday.

    Depending on exactly where the low pressure develops, rain may impact the South Coast and Cape and Islands. Expecting a cloudy and cool day on Saturday with an east wind coming in off the Atlantic Ocean as stalled front remains just south of the region.

    Highs only make it in the upper 60s at the coast to the low 70s. On Sunday, sun and drier air filters into New England as a high pressure system moves into the region.

    Expecting highs to rise into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Looking ahead to next week, sunny skies and seasonable temperatures look to dominant the region with high pressure nearby.
