Unsettled weather will give way to a dry and cool second half of the week across the Boston area.
A cold front looks to sweep eastward and be the trigger for a more widespread area of rainfall on Tuesday. Rain will move into Boston in the morning, with continued chances for scattered storms and showers throughout the day.
Temperatures are going to be right around seasonable for the middle of May, reaching onto the middle to upper 60s.
While the rain and storms may be a nuisance as people go about their day, the region is in need of rain and was officially declared abnormally dry by the United States Drought Monitor last Thursday.
A raincoat, waterproof boots and an umbrella will certainly come in handy as you head out the door to work on Tuesday.
The second half of the week and into the holiday weekend will feature ideal outdoor weather. Skies will be sunny and temperatures are forecast to rise into the middle to upper 60s.
Red Sox fans heading to the series against the Angels over the weekend will need to remember the suncreen, but can leave the raincoat at home.
