Boston Weather: 39.0°F | A Few Clouds and Breezy

Weather: Back to Normal

By Efren Gutierrez
STAFF METEOROLOGIST

After strong thunderstorms moved through the Boston region on Sunday, the cold front which caused them has moved out into the Atlantic Ocean. A high pressure is building over the New England area, bringing with it clear skies and moderate temperatures, just in time for the first day of fall. This scenario will be the norm until later in the week when another cold front situated in the Ohio River valley will move in and bring some more needed rain to the region.

In other weather news, Hurricane Isidore over the weekend struck the Yucatan Peninsula. It has just been downgraded as a tropical storm. Currently it is stationary over the Yucatan, but is expected to move into open waters. It is forecasted to intensify over the Gulf of Mexico and move northward toward the Gulf Coast.

Another tropical storm has developed just east of the lower Lesser Antilles. It is forecasted to strengthen into a hurricane sometime tomorrow.
