This past weekend had an "end of summer" feel, with lower humidity and cooler temperatures. Throw in sunsets that are again before 7:30, and suddenly signs of fall are mounting.

Here are three things to know about this week's weather around the South Shore.

Warm Start to the Week

The warmest day of the week will be Monday. Temperatures will pop into the 80s, with muggy conditions, ahead of a cold front.

That front will trigger some scattered showers and storms during the afternoon, so keep an eye out if you head to the beach early on.

The rest of the week will be much cooler, with high temperatures only in the 70s. Overnight temperatures will be in the 50s and low 60s for the most part.

Surge of Tropical Moisture

Hurricane Ida slammed Louisiana on Sunday, and its remnants will likely visit us Wednesday into Thursday.

During that time we'll face a slug of tropical downpours, and the risk of some street flooding.

Long Weekend Looks Good So Far

Given our track record with holidays this summer--a wet Memorial Day and July 4th weekend--a headline like that feels like a jinx.

But so far, Labor Day weekend looks good! It does, however, look to feature below average conditions.

Highs will likely stay in the 70s.

A front will approach on the holiday itself, so if there's a chance of a few showers, it would likely be late Monday.
