A cold front passed through the region overnight – bringing a few snow showers and snow squalls to parts of the Cape – and sent temperatures plummeting to the 10s as the core of an arctic air mass pushed southward into New England.
Readings will struggle to climb today, despite the strong March sun, with highs only topping out between 20 and 25F. This is a solid 20F below the average for this time of year. Temperatures will once again fall well down into the 10s tonight (accompanied by strong north and northwest winds) and will likely fall short of the freezing mark on Sunday.
A few ocean effect snow showers and flurries could clip parts of the Lower and Outer Cape later Saturday and into Saturday night.
