High temperatures on Monday reached the upper 30s to around 40F across the Cape and readings fell back into the upper 10s and 20s overnight…leading to a cold, frosty start to our Tuesday.
Chilly air will continue to feed into the Northeast and New England today and tonight, actually being reinforced a bit by a southward moving weather disturbance over the next 12 to 18 hours. That feature will help induce low pressure development offshore, which could yield a brief flurry or snow shower around the area tonight.
On Wednesday, a busy north wind will become established over the area and that northerly flow should help induce some ocean effect cloudiness and perhaps some pockets of flurries and snow showers. While a widespread snow event is not expected, it’s possible that some steadier bands of snow move onto the Lower and Outer Cape at times, which could yield a light accumulation of snow. Model guidance is not overly enthusiastic on the prospects for snow.
With chilly temperatures, any steadier snow that does fall could lead to some slick spots on area roadways so it’s worth monitoring the forecast over the next 24 hours or so.
