Onshore winds throughout the weekend resulted in somewhat cool temperatures and periodic low clouds and fog (more than periodic depending upon where you were – parts of the Outer Cape struggled to clear at all through the weekend) around the area. While temperatures ultimately managed to approach 70F in many spots both Saturday and Sunday, there was a persistent cool feel to the air for much of the weekend with winds off the water. In addition, an abundance of high cloudiness Saturday and the first half of Sunday meant little meaningful sunshine and blue sky.
Ironically, the passage of a cold front is bringing us sunnier and milder conditions to start the workweek.
Anticipate a fair amount of sunshine today with temperatures in the upper 60s to lower and middle 70s around the Cape thanks to a nice westerly wind. Passing high cloudiness during the morning hours will shift east and we should mostly sunny skies for the remainder of the day.
You can see on the mid-morning analysis that temperatures on the Cape are the warmest in the area thanks to the offshore flow of air.
