While Boston will see an increase in temperature this week, the city will miss out on the extreme heat affecting parts of the mid-Atlantic.

Warm and more humid conditions will build over the area Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs are projected to reach the 80s F both days. It may feel more like 90 on Wednesday oppressive, when compared to this past weekend.

The latest in the season the temperature has hit 90 for the first time around Boston was on August 6, 1906.

Spotty showers and thunderstorms from the Great Lakes may survive the trip to the New England coast.

Cooler and less humid air is forecast to push southward across the region later in the week.
