The door will finally open for noticeably warmer air to surge into the Boston area on Monday.

While milder air poured across most of the Northeast to close out the weekend, air flowing in from the chilly Atlantic Ocean held temperatures to the 60s in Boston on Sunday.

Winds will flip around to the southwest for Monday, ushering in warmer air and boosting temperatures to the lower 80s. Humidity will remain comfortably low.

While some clouds will filter overhead at times, enough of the strong sun will shine through that those spending part of the day outdoors should remember to apply sunscreen and wear sunglasses.

Great weather is in store for Monday evening for those planning to take a stroll around the city or have dinner on the porch or patio.
