In the wake of heavy rain and gusty thunderstorms Monday night, seasonable temperatures will follow for the balance of the week around Boston.

Spotty showers drifted across eastern New England during the day Monday. But as the front approached, winds gusted to 50 mph across the region, bringing down trees and power lines into the evening along with heavy rain.

However, less humid, more seasonable air is in store for the region Tuesday through Friday, marking an end to nearly a week with warm and/or sticky conditions.

Normal temperatures this week range from highs in the low to middle 60s with night time lows in the upper 40s to near 50. Temperatures will be near to slightly above average.

Lingering moisture, some of which is associated with Tropical Rainstorm Karen will be watched for possible impact later in the week.

A storm system will form along the mid-Atlantic coast as early as Wednesday and may slowly drift northward.

Rain could creep back in on one or more occasions during the second half of the week. Even if rain does not make the trip up from the south, there will be episodes of clouds.
