It’s been a rough stretch of weather if you don’t like overcast, chilly and sometimes damp conditions. We’ve had a run of almost a week (5 straight…today will make 6) now with cooler than average temperatures and sunshine has been quite limited…and this comes on the heels of an April that saw precipitation fall on 23 of the 30 days.
We remain locked in with onshore flow today and subsequently it will be tough to break out into any meaningful warm sunshine. Temperatures will again struggle to climb out of the 40s and into the 50s this afternoon…topping out generally in the middle 50s around the Cape. For some perspective, the average high for May 3rd at Hyannis is 61F but last year on May 2nd, the high was 80F and on May 3rd it was 74F.
As for the weekend, things aren’t looking overly great. Showers Saturday morning will slip offshore and things will dry out a bit over the course of the day but clouds will be tough to shake and temperatures will likely fall short of 60F once again. Another round of wet weather and chilly temperatures is anticipated Sunday.
