Welcome back from a wonderful weekend just for our Moms!  Beaches were packed, parking lots were full at local parks, and boats were out on the water!

A stalled front to our west and a ridge to our east are fighting for their territory.  Consequently, the focal point for showers today will mainly be outside of 495 where the front is going to be bobbing back and forth.  That beign said, we cannot completely rule out a renegade shower crossing within the 495 and/or 128 corridor.  We will all be under mostly cloudy skies throughout the day with a calm morning breeze shifting to the south-southeast at 5-15mph pace. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Showers will still be north and west for the most part on Monday night.  Lows will stay on the mild side in the 55-60F range.

Tuesday will be the day where the stationary front will slowly move eastward, and this will induce more showers for Eastern Mass. during the day.  Highs will be in the middle 60s to near 70F.

The steadiest and heaviest is expected to be Tuesday night.  There may be some thunderstorms embedded within this bout of rain as well. This heavier batch of rain will exit Eastern Mass. on Wednesday morning.

Wednesday will become partly cloudy to partly sunny by midday with a slight chance of an afternoon spot shower/thunder as a secondary cold front sweeps across the region.  High temps will be in the middle to 70s. The Cape/Islands will hover in the upper 60s due to an onshore wind flow.

Thursday and Friday will be the products of high pressure and ridging aloft.  Highs will be in the middle to upper 70s.

As of right now, the upcoming weekend also looks awesome with sunshine and highs in the middle to upper 70s!
