A low pressure system sliding by to our east brought an increase in onshore flow and low level moisture overnight, resulting in plenty of fog, mist and drizzle… and even a few light rain showers on the Lower and Outer Cape.
The system, which can be seen nicely on the satellite and surface analysis below, is still close enough to the Cape this morning to yield a busy north wind and keep plenty of clouds around the area. However, as we push through the morning and into midday, the small storm will lift to our north and east and we’ll escape its circulation – northerly winds will shift to the southwest, and drier air will build into the region. The end result will be increasing amounts of blue sky and sunshine as the day goes on and temperatures recovering to near 60F after a somewhat chilly morning.
Additional clouds will spill into the region late in the day and this evening as a cold front to our west shifts into the area. This frontal zone could yield a shower or two during the first part of tonight.
