    Boston: New Week Brings Surge of Warmth, Humidity

    The absence of high heat and humidity around Boston will not last into the start of the new week.

    As the area of high pressure that kept humidity low through the holiday weekend departs, the door will open for yet another surge of steamy air into Boston for the new week.

    Temperatures will be on the rise through Tuesday, returning to the 90-degree mark. With higher humidity in place, AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will soar beyond that mark.

    Such heat and humidity will prove challenging and hazardous for those with respiratory issues and those engaging in manual labor. Be sure to take the necessary steps, which includes drinking plenty of water and wearing light clothing, to stay cool.


    Winds flowing in off the cooler ocean will keep the temperatures lower across the Cape and Islands.

    Otherwise, spotty cooling thunderstorms each afternoon will be confined to the suburbs outside of Rt. 128 in the afternoon and evening hours.

    The thunderstorm chance will expand to more of Boston area on Wednesday, potentially causing some interruptions at Fenway Park Wednesday evening when the Red Sox are scheduled to face the Chicago White Sox.

    A slow-moving cold front slicing into the very warm and humid air mass will trigger the thunderstorms.

    How fast that front is to clear the Northeast coast will determine how quick drier and more comfortable air returns later in the week.
