Along the immediate coastline highs will remain cooler during this timeframe and will fail to reach the above-mentioned levels due to the influence of a still frigid 40 degree Atlantic Ocean.

Dry conditions prevail through the week until a cold front nears the area on Friday and yields the chance for spotty rain showers by the evening.

The front may hang nearby on Saturday to generate a few more showers.
