Sunday and Monday’s wild weather is now a thing of the past as high pressure builds eastward into the region.
After another round of wind-driven downpours and a period of powerful southeast winds – that resulted in quite a bit of tree damage across the Cape – today will be a much quieter day across the area.
Expect plenty of sunshine through the day on Tuesday with temperatures in the 50s and lower 60s for afternoon highs. Busy west and southwest winds will persist through the afternoon before diminishing as we near sundown.
That diminishing wind will come courtesy of high pressure shifting eastward and into New England and settling overhead tonight. That’ll set the stage for a nice – albeit rather chilly – evening for trick-or-treating and a clear, calm and cold overnight period on the Cape.
The combination of light winds, dry air and clear skies will make for good radiational cooling conditions…allowing temperatures to fall quickly through the 40s and down into the 30s. The result should be pockets of frost by Wednesday morning…particularly in cooler low-lying frost-prone areas. A Frost Advisory is posted for the Cape.
