Temperatures were on the rise over the weekend, setting the stage for a warm and more humid start to June in the Northeast.

Temperatures will continue to rise across the region on Monday with many locations climbing into the 80s during the afternoon.

"The warmup will be good news for folks heading to ball games, amusement parks, beaches and camp grounds." said AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

People who have opened their pool since Memorial Day will have warm weather to test the waters on Monday with highs reaching the 80s as far north as Maine.

Temperatures will continue to climb along the I-95 corridor through Wednesday with highs reaching the mid to upper 80s. A few bank thermometers may even give readings in the 90s.

Keep in mind that these thermometers do not give proper temperature readings due to effects by direct sunlight and heat from paved surfaces.

Although temperatures are forecast to climb well into the 80s along the I-95 corridor on Tuesday and Wednesday, those in northern New England should expect a slight cooldown.

After a warmer Monday, temperatures will retreat into the 70s over New Hampshire and the 60s over Maine by Wednesday, near normal for early June.

Not only will those in the Northeast experience warmer weather early this week, but also the threat of heavy thunderstorms.

Following a dry Monday, thunderstorms are set to swing into the region on Tuesday afternoon, bringing the threat of some gusty winds and heavy downpours from New York to Virginia.

This may lead to travel delays, especially during the Tuesday afternoon commute.

Looking ahead to the second half of the week, temperatures are expected to remain a few degrees above average across the Northeast.

Many locations will experience highs in the 70s with the exception of highs in the 80s along the I-95 corridor.
