In a month that has featured record rainfall, the South Shore is finally in for several days of sunshine and nicer summer weather.
WARM, SMOKEY START TO THE WEEK
The week starts on a warm and muggy note. High temperatures Monday will climb into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.
This will be another day where the sunshine appears hazy, courtesy of wildfire smoke blowing into New England from wildfires burning in Canada and the Western United States.
Tuesday will still be humid as well, with temperatures in the middle 80s. Early sunshine will fade behind increasing clouds as a front approaches.
That front will also bring the risk of showers and storms late Tuesday into Tuesday night.
The front will pull away on Wednesday, so early clouds will allow for more sunshine over the course of the day.
Temperatures will also be cooler behind the front, with daytime highs in the 70s. Humidity will be more comfortable, too.
MID-WEEK RAIN CHANCES
We'll find more clouds, and scattered showers, returning to the forecast on Thursday.
Any rain we receive will be added to our already record wet month. So far in July we've seen 11.33" in Hingham, breaking the previous July record set in 1988.
Daytime temperatures will be around 80.
COMFORTABLE LATE WEEK
Friday into Saturday looks bright at this point, with plenty of sun and highs in the 70s. A northwest wind will bring in less humid air, making it feel comfortable for this time of year.
