Another October-like day is shaping up for Boston this week with fresh cool air on the way.

Temperatures on Monday will top out at near 70 degrees, while a cold front swinging through the Northeast triggers a shower or two.

Anyone with outdoor plans on Monday; however, should not use the showers as an excuse to cancel those plans. The showers will be light and spotty, allowing most of the day and some places to stay dry.

Residents and visitors will just want to keep an umbrella handy.

In the wake of the front, the arrival of fresh cool air will have Monday night and Tuesday feeling more like October than mid-September.

Temperatures Monday night will drop down to 47 degrees in downtown Boston, then will be held to the lower 60s on Tuesday underneath bright sunshine. Some places outside of Route 128 will even dip into the upper 30s Monday night.

Just like over the weekend, the cool air will not linger long in the Northeast. A warming trend will follow from Wednesday through Friday. Tuesday's dry weather will also persist during these days.
