Boston: Cool Air to Return After Midweek Temperature Spike

Temperatures will make a run well into the 80s and could touch 90 F Wednesday afternoon with high humidity, before cooler and less humid air returns to Boston.

The latest in the season the temperature has hit 90 F for the first time around Boston was on Aug. 6, 1906. So, if temperatures stop short of 90 F, there is a long way to go before a record is broken for late-season 90-degree temperatures.

As cooler air begins to move back in Wednesday evening, there is the chance of a locally heavy, gusty thunderstorm.

Dry weather and at least partial sunshine are in the offing Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

There is a chance of moisture returning from the south and west on Sunday in the form of spotty showers and thunderstorms.
