After several days of sunny but rather cold weather for this time of year, we can look forward to some milder weather for the next few days.
High pressure slipped offshore to our east on Thursday and the clockwise wind flow around that feature meant a southerly wind became established over the region. That return flow of air is funneling a more seasonable air mass northward into New England and setting the stage for a couple of days of milder temperatures to close out the work week and start the weekend.
The regional surface analysis and satellite/radar composite on Friday morning showed temperatures in the 40s across the area – a far cry from the upper 10s and 20s we had in many spots the last few mornings – but an abundance of clouds throughout the region. Off to our north and west, sprinkles and showers were passing overhead, ensuring a bit of an unsettled day for those locations.
Here on the Cape, we’ll avoid most of the wet weather (can’t rule out a shower or sprinkle at some point during the day) and will see a messy sky featuring lots of clouds but also some dim sunshine and pockets of blue sky here and there. Temperatures in the 40s this morning will top out in the upper 40s to middle 50s around the area, with the coolest locations right along the water.
We should be able to tack on a few more degrees tomorrow under similar weather conditions and Sunday will be quite mild as well – though rain chances will go up over the course of the day.
