A developing low pressure area to our south and east produced a light dusting of snow in the pre-dawn hours which helped make for some slick roads this morning. Behind this feature, gusty northerly winds are feeding another surge of cold air southward into the area. Temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s will have a tough time climbing through the day, with readings generally topping out in the lower and middle 30s across the Cape.
With cold air deepening over the region and northerly breezes persisting through the day and into tonight, we’ll likely some developing ocean effect clouds and flurries as the day goes on…with the possibility of some snow shower activity later in the afternoon and into the evening hours before things taper off during the first half of the tonight.
While this isn’t looking like a big deal, it’s possible that a few spots see a quick coating to an inch of snow if some heavier bands of ocean effect snow are able to organize before conditions become less conducive for the development of ocean effect.
While the majority of the short-term higher resolution model guidance keeps the brunt of the snow shower activity just east of the Cape, there are a handful of products that show a few bands of snow developing over the Lower and Outer Cape and briefly migrating westward to about Hyannis or so.
