Despite tons of strong March sunshine, temperatures on Monday only topped out in the lower 30s across the Cape.
Readings fell to the lower and middle 20s overnight and will only climb back to the middle and upper 30s today…all the while gusty west and northwest winds will continue over the region, adding a noticeable bite to the air and certainly working against the “warm” sun.
For reference, the average daytime high temperatures for March 19th at Hyannis is 46F.
Chilly conditions, overall, will continue for the foreseeable future as a strong blocking pattern in the northern latitudes continues to displace cold air southward into New England.
Likewise, model guidance continues to show the potential for multiple weather systems to impact the area in the coming 10 days…the first of which will move into our region on Wednesday. This incoming nor’easter / coastal storm is likely to bring another round of snow, rain, gusty winds and coastal issues to the Cape – hopefully not as high impact as its predecessors. Stay tuned.
