Thick Frost in Many Spots

The classic “triple C night” – clear, calm, cold – has ended the growing season for most of Cape Cod.

Clear skies, light winds and a dry air mass allowed temperatures to free fall into the 20s over much of the area last night, with just immediate shoreline spots holding above freezing. As of 5AM, temperatures at official reporting stations on the Cape were: Falmouth – 27F, Hyannis – 26F, Chatham – 32F and Provincetown – 44F (where a very light southwest wind off the mild waters of Cape Cod Bay held readings up).

As for the rest of your Friday, expect a decent day overall with a nice recovery in temperatures under partly sunny skies. Afternoon readings will get back into the middle and upper 50s – a solid 10F milder than Thursday. The only downside to the day will be a busy southwest wind during the midday and afternoon hours that will make things feel a bit cooler. Dry, comfortable weather should hang on into the weekend.
