    Boston: Warmth to Hold Beyond Labor Day

    Labor Day weekend traditionally marks the unofficial end to summer, but the weather has another idea in mind with summer warmth surging in around Boston.

    After the holiday weekend started on a pleasant note, another warm day is in store for Labor Day.

    Temperatures will approach 85 F on Monday. When humidity is factored in, AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will be higher with these temperatures cracking the 90-degree mark.

    Such warmth will create hazards for those engaging in strenuous labor or sporting events, as well as the elderly and those with respiratory issues.

    A high near 76 F is more common in Boston in early September. This Labor Day will be even warmer than the Fourth of July when temperatures were held to 76 F.

    A shower or thunderstorm will be around to occasionally cool off the city and its suburbs through Monday.

    While the cooling effect will be welcome, those with picnics, parades or other outdoor activities will experience disruptions if a shower or thunderstorm arrives at an inopportune time.

    The good news is that the second half of the holiday weekend will not be a washout. There will be stretches of dry weather. Residents and visitors will just have to keep an eye to the sky and AccuWeather.com MinuteCast™.

    Remember, you are close enough to be struck by lightning if you hear thunder.

    The summer warmth will not come to an end with Labor Day. Instead, temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 80s on Tuesday with even higher RealFeels.

    "Looking ahead to the second half of the week, the heat is forecast to gradually ease, but never quite disappear completely," stated AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Lada.
