Boston to Feel Like Summer for a Time This Week

Warm weather fans in the Boston area will have something to be happy about this week. However Atlantic Ocean bathers may face rough surf prior to the holiday weekend due to Cristobal.

A flow of dry, cool air that moved in over the weekend will be replaced by building warmth and humidity under sunshine through the middle of the week.

High temperatures through Wednesday will be well into the 80s F. Temperatures typically range from a low of 63 to a high of 78 during the last week of August.

AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will stop well short of extreme levels reached in the Midwest from Monday, where values reached the 120-degree mark.

The pattern will have fans buzzing and air conditioners humming, before another strong cooling trend toward the end of the week.

For people trying to get a last-minute break at the beach, there is a concern prior to the weekend.

While Cristobal is forecast to remain at sea, the system will get strong enough and close enough to generate rough surf later this week. There will be the potential for rip currents to become strong and frequent Thursday into Friday.

Meanwhile in the eastern Pacific, Marie became the strongest hurricane in years and will send big waves and dangerous surf toward Southern California this week.

For those traveling this Labor Day weekend, a zone of unsettled weather with showers and thunderstorms will move slowly eastward through the Central states.
