    A cold front approaches tonight, eventually wiping away the muggy air that's been in place this weekend. Ahead of that front winds will really pick up, gusting 20-40 MPH late today and tonight. Gusts may actually exceed 40 MPH for parts of the Maine coast and the Cape and Islands. A line of showers and downpours will also come through tonight as the front passes. A lingering shower may still be around first thing Monday morning south of Boston, but then sunshine will rush in with cooler and less humid air. Highs on Monday will only be in the 50s to near 60! Beyond that we have virtually nothing but sunshine in the forecast right into next week as high pressure dominates our weather. Early in the week highs will stay in the 50s and 60s, with 30s and 40s overnight resulting in some frosty spots. By mid and late week though, highs will be closer to 70. Those temperatures stretch into next weekend as we see it right now.
