    Story Highlights

    The last Sunday of August will feel more like late September...

    FALL PREVIEW CONTINUES

    Relatively cool weather continues on Sunday. It will be cooler than Saturday with many towns struggling to reach 70 in the afternoon. Scattered morning showers are possible - especially south of Boston. There will be some afternoon clouds and a fresh northeast breeze. Sunday night will be the coolest since mid-June. Look for lows in the 40s in the countryside, and 50s in the cities. It will be the fist time in more than 10 weeks that Boston has been below 60°.

    UNSETTLED MIDWEEK

    Monday and Tuesday should be mainly dry, but rather cool, with highs in the low 70s. A front approaching from the west in the midweek will interact with some rain from an offshore disturbance and bring showers late Wednesday into Thursday. It looks like it will clear out by Friday, and a warm-up is ahead into the Labor Day weekend. 

    ACTION IN THE TROPICS

    The aforementioned disturbance off the East Coast could become Tropical Storm Erin. Right now, it is just a cluster of thunderstorms off the Florida coast. We'll be watching it. There is also Tropical Storm Dorian moving westward towards the Caribbean. That storm is expected to strengthen and may threaten Puerto Rico as a stronger tropical storm in the middle of the week.
