    Typical Warmth for DC, NYC, Boston to Start New Week

    Temperatures will rebound to more typical August highs along most of the East Coast to start the new week as rain chances lessen and clouds break up.

    The weekend definitely did not feel like early August across most of the East Coast with clouds and/or rain and thunderstorms in place.

    Temperatures on Sunday were held 5 to 10 degrees below normal from the Carolinas to Maine.

    Temperatures will gradually rebound back to more typical early August highs Monday through Tuesday as the dip in the jet stream responsible for the cool air, clouds and wet weather lifts northward.


    On Tuesday, highs in the 80s will be common across New England with New York City warming back into the middle 80s and Washington, D.C., once again experiencing highs in the upper 80s.

    Humidity will create even higher AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

    Despite a rise in temperatures, clouds and rain will not be completely absent from the East Coast Monday and Tuesday.

    A few showers and thunderstorms will return Monday and Tuesday, especially in the afternoon and evening. This activity will be spotty and even miss some communities.

    More numerous showers and thunderstorms will likely occur on Wednesday as a cold front swings through. For those planning to spend a day at the beach, Wednesday's storminess will coincide with when Bertha will kick up rough surf and a heightened risk of rip currents.


    Yet another press of cooler and less humid air will arrive for later in the week in the front's wake.

    Mid-August is when the AccuWeather.com Long Range Forecast Team finally expects prolonged summer warmth to dominate the Northeast.
