Cooler and drier air moved into the region Wednesday afternoon and night and will remain in place over the area through the day today. We can expect a fair amount of sunshine and blue sky throughout the day and temperatures will peak in the upper 30s to around 40F. That’s about where we “should be” this time of year as the average high temperature at Hyannis for February 14th is 40F. The only downside to the day will be a bit of busy west wind, which will add a chill to the air (especially this morning) at times as it gusts over 25 mph.
Another storm system will make a move into the Northeast and New England tonight and Friday, sweeping a fast-moving cold front across the region. This frontal zone will be accompanied by plenty of clouds and some pockets of wet weather for us throughout the day on Friday. However, despite the unsettled conditions, it’ll be relatively mild with temperatures climbing well into the 40s…and perhaps nudging 50F in spots.
Colder air will return for the weekend and should remain in place throughout the extended forecast period.
