Temperatures climbed into the lower and middle 40s on Sunday and it actually felt quite nice for a time as sunshine added a warm feel to the day. Unfortunately, a cold front cut across the region overnight and has since pushed offshore. Behind this boundary, northerly winds have resumed and colder air is filtering back into the area. In fact, temperatures have actually fallen several degrees first thing this morning – from the lower and middle 30s to the upper 20s and lower 30s over the last couple of hours. With cold air continuing to funnel southward on a busy north wind, readings won’t really rise much for the remainder of the day.
As the northerly wind persists and cold air deepens over the area, ocean effect clouds will develop over the course of the morning and afternoon and start to spill south and westward onto the Cape as the day goes on. As we get into the afternoon and evening hours, a few spotty light flurries and snow showers are possible around the area. This activity, while light and hit-or-miss, may continue through the nighttime hours as northeast winds continue to blow over the area.
