Note: The elevated fire risk continues today due to the combination of gusty winds and dry conditions.
With many on vacation this week, this is great start! Enjoy the warm weather while you can because temperatures will be dropping quite a bit starting Tuesday.
The weather will be great if you are watching the Red Sox game or Boston Marathon today! Highs will be in the low to mid 70s.
Once again, winds will be busy gusting to 25 to 30 mph at times. But unlike yesterday when winds were from the southwest, today the wind will be from the west-northwest which will allow most of the coast to reach the 70s as well!

After today, highs go back into the 50s for the rest of the week. –Pete Mangione
