Play video Weather across the Northeast is discussed in the above video.

Monday's dry weather is not a sign of things to come for this week with fresh cool air and soaking rain on the horizon.

Those who enjoy spending time outdoors should definitely take advantage of Monday's weather.

Despite more clouds than sunshine, no rain threatens to put a damper on or ruin outdoor plans with high pressure in control. Temperatures will rise into the lower 50s.

The dry weather will hold through Tuesday, but clouds will continue to win out over sunshine and air flowing in from the cold ocean will hold temperatures to the 40s.

Brisk winds will create even lower RealFeel® temperatures.

The Boston area will turn progressively wet Wednesday through Thursday as the storm system triggering severe weather across the nation's midsection crawls eastward.

Residents can anticipate likely interruptions to outdoor events and activities, as well as travel slowdowns.

The city may stay unsettled with a couple of showers and thunderstorms through Friday and the upcoming weekend.
