High pressure settling into the region from the north kicked up a cool north and northeasterly breeze on Sunday. So despite lots of strong June sunshine, highs held in the middle and upper 60s on the Lower and Outer Cape and topped out around 70F elsewhere – which is a touch below average for this time of year.
The same northeasterly breeze that transported yesterday’s “chilly” air into the region also helped to transport a deck of low clouds westward from the ocean and toward the Cape just as sundown passed. Skies turned overcast overnight and that’s how we’ve started our workweek – cloudy and rather cool.
Thankfully, the air mass over the region is quite dry so we’ve thus far avoided much in the way of fog and mist and instead we’re just dealing with a busy northeast wind and a flat gray sky. It looks like that will be the theme for the morning hours on Monday but we’ll see some holes develop in the overcast with time and should see some clearing as the day goes on.
Temperatures will top out in the middle 60s on average around the Cape.
Much nicer weather – and far more summer-like – will take hold as the week progresses.
