Temperatures dropped to the middle and upper 20s across most of the Cape overnight and will once again fall well short of our average high temperature this afternoon as readings only top out in the lower 40s.
In addition to the unseasonably cold temperatures, a fast-moving weather system is sliding through the Northeast and New England today and this feature will bring us increasing clouds this morning and a round of rain and snow this afternoon.
We should expect precipitation to break out -likely in the form of snow or mixed snow and rain – across the area during the midday hours and to continue through a fair chunk of the afternoon, gradually tapering off after 4 or 5 o’clock. Snow or mixed snow and rain should transition to plain rain in rather short order and little if any accumulation is anticipated. That said, falling snow is far from what most people want to see at this point in the year.
Unfortunately, there is at least one more threat for winter weather in the coming days before perhaps things start to turn less wintry in about a week’s time.
