The week will start off chilly before temperatures rebound to seasonal highs in the upper 50s, the National Weather Service said.
A stiff breeze off the ocean will keep temperatures along the coast at or below 50 degrees today, meteorologist Bob Thompson said, though skies will be clear and sunny.
Clouds rolling in tonight will bring periods of rain and drizzle through Tuesday evening, Thompson said. The Cape and islands will see the heaviest periods of rain throughout the day.
Temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40s in Boston, as the stiff breeze continues, coupled with cloudy skies and wet conditions, Thompson said.
Spotty showers will continue through Wednesday morning but will clear out by the afternoon, Thompson said. Expect daytime highs in the low 60s. The clearing will be short-lived as as another front moves through Wednesday evening.
Wednesday night’s front could prolong showers linto Thursday morning, Thompson said. Forecasters are unsure whether skies will clear by Thursday afternoon, though daytime highs are expected to reach the upper 50s to low 60s.
Friday looks to be the nicest day of the week, with highs at or above the normal high of 58 in Boston, paired with clear skies.
“It’s not a heat wave by any means, but at least we’re moving back to normal highs,’’ Thompson said.
