    Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s.

    (Published Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017)

    There will be gray skies and some lingering misty showers for the Boston-area today, with a few more towards the Cape and Islands. These showers, along with the wind associated with Jose, will continue to subside, along with a gradual clearing of the skies from west to east.

    By the time clouds clear, the outer Cape will not be until the later afternoon, but most locations will see some sunshine with highs into the lower 80s today inland, 70s at the immediate coast.

    A High Surf Advisory remains through this evening from Downeast Maine, to coastal Rhode Island. Overnight tonight, temperatures only slip into the 60s under partly cloudy skies.

    Sunday brings another summer-like day with possibly some record-breaking heat. Highs are on track to reach into the mid to upper 80s, with a few 90s under plenty of sunshine and a light and variable wind. Closer to the coastline, highs will be near 80, great to get one last beach day in before fall takes over.

    For the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk Sunday, a beautiful day from start to finish with highs into the low to mid 80s under plenty of sunshine. Plus, for the Pats game, temperatures will be near 85 degrees by kickoff in Foxboro!

    The unseasonably warm, summer-like weather sticks around Monday and Tuesday. A cold front slides in from the northwest, ushering in more seasonable conditions, along with higher rain chances, by Wednesday and Thursday.

    We’ve been keeping an eye on Hurricane Maria — still a Category 3 Hurricane north of the Turks and Caicos Islands, will continue to slide northward and weaken to a Category 1 by Tuesday, parallel to the eastern seaboard.

    There is still some wiggle room in the track, but most models agree that Maria will stay out to sea, we’ll likely start to see the wave heights increasing by late Tuesday into Wednesday, associated with Maria. The cold front that brings cooler air and a few rain showers will likely keep Maria out to sea.
