    Despite a warm start to the week, cooler air will make a comeback in Boston Tuesday.

    A backdoor cold front swung through the area Monday night, ushering in lower temperatures that will stick around through Tuesday.

    Shorts and sunglasses will likely be replaced with pants and jackets with highs only in the 50s when compared to a high of 85 degrees on Monday.


    A similar day is in store for Wednesday, although temperatures are forecast to reach the lower 60s.

    A rebound in temperatures will occur Thursday ahead of the cold front heightening concerns for late-week heavy rain. However, temperatures will not soar significantly with a high in the lower 70s expected.

    The front, combined with embedded tropical moisture, will bring the risk of flooding downpours later Friday into Saturday.


    Fresh cool air following the front and a slow-moving storm system set to take shape over the Northeast or just offshore will prevent a repeat of the summerlike warmth next weekend or early the following week.
