    Our weekend will end under a mostly cloudy sky with a chance for isolated showers and storms as the air mass turns more unstable with the increase in humidity and warmer temperatures. Not everyone is expected to see rain, but wherever the showers develop, they will move quickly.

    Highs will be cooler at the coast, in the 70s, due to the sea breeze while warmer inland with highs in the mid-80s.

    Tonight, temperatures will drop into the 60s and near 70 degrees. It will be muggy and warm so you may need to turn on the A/C or the fan to keep you cool.

    Highs surge back to around 90 inland on Monday, with 70s and 80s at the coast. An isolated shower is possible, but most will be rain-free and muggy.

    A cold front moves in on Tuesday. That will bring a widespread risk of rain and storms during the day in parts of Western and Northern New England. The rain risk slides closer to Boston and the rest of Southern New England Tuesday afternoon into early Wednesday. There’s a slight risk for severe weather as the front gets closer because of the moderate instability with dew points in the mid-60s to near 70º. Certainly, Tuesday looks like the best day to get some much needed rain around here with totals up to an inch.

    Behind the front, a refreshing air mass will arrive on Wednesday with lower humidity and highs in the low 80s and these conditions will last until Friday before the chance for storms ramp up for next weekend.
