At 90 degrees, Sunday brought the warmest day of the year. On average, Boston’s first 90-degree day is June 8. This time last year, we already had eight days of 90-degree or higher temperatures.
After the weekend warmth, a cold front is moving in from the west and will clear New England overnight. This will drop temperatures into the 60s overnight. Tuesday’s highs are more in line with the norm, in the mid-70s. The front brings beneficial rainfall as the region is still in moderate drought. A change in wind direction will blow in a calm Tuesday. With dewpoints in the low 50s, a comfortable day is expected.
