Low 40s and Stiff Northeast Winds

Paying the Price For Living Near the Ocean

The last several days have been annoyingly windy and chilly across the Cape. The combination of strong high pressure locked in north of New England and an ocean storm spinning out in the ocean has produced a consistent – and rather strong – northeast wind since early in the week. […]

March 2016 – 4th Warmest

NOAA: In many parts of the country, early spring flowers, leafing trees and busy birds were good indications of just how warm the start of year has been. The March average temperature for the Lower 48 was 6.0 degrees F above the 20th-century average, which ranks as the third warmest […]

Snowfall Forecast For Monday

Snowfall Totals From Around The Region

While April snow isn’t unheard of by any means, yesterday’s snow event (the 2nd in two days) was quite impressive around Southern New England. Not only did some places pick up 8 to 9 inches of snow in Southeastern Massachusetts, but temperatures held in the 20s across nearly the entire […]

March Snow, From Space

The last bit of Monday’s snow was visible on satellite imagery this morning. Here is today’s MODIS satellite image. Note the small patch of snow on the Upper Cape…it’s this area that picked up 2 to 3 inches of snow as temperatures were just a couple of degrees colder throughout […]

Weekend May Start a Bit Gray

Clouds from an offshore storm will build westward overnight tonight and are likely to spill onto the Cape for a time on Saturday, before shifting south of the area and allowing sunshine to return. With that in mind, expect a chilly start to the weekend and don’t be surprised if […]

Showers Headed Our Way

Gusty south winds took hold overnight and temperatures jumped into the upper 40s and lower 50s…and will continue to climb this morning – topping out between 55 and 60F today. Unfortunately, a look at the regional radar first thing this morning showed a large area of rain and downpours off […]

Snow Shifting Offshore

We’ve picked up a coating to 2 inches of snow across the Cape…with frequent wind gusts of 45 to 55 mph this morning. The worst of the weather is now shifting offshore. Skies will turn partly sunny during midday, though a few passing snow showers can’t be ruled out at […]

7:30AM: Rain Flipping To Snow, Strong Winds Coming Shortly

Keeping An Eye on Saturday’s Weather

While high pressure is locked over the region and providing us with a long period of storm-free weather, there’s always something to keep an eye on from a forecasting standpoint. In this case, the main forecast questions revolve around Saturday’s weather. An offshore storm will wobble westward a bit toward […]

NAM 950 MB Winds 11AM Sunday

Strongest Wind Between 8AM-Noon

The wind threat Sunday morning is relatively short-lived as the core of strong winds on the backside of the departing storm rotates quickly through the area between 8AM and noon. As we draw nearer the event, the timing of the wind suggests it might be an hour or two either […]

Wrong Direction

There is very strong model agreement for a stretch of unseasonably cold – if not record cold – air to invade the northern tier of the country in a little over a week’s time. In response to a building ridge over the Eastern Pacific and into Alaska next week, a […]

Colder Than It Might Appear

An upper level trough and its associated cold front will cross the region on Friday and Friday night. The early returns on the weekend suggest a dry couple of days with high pressure building in behind the departing frontal zone and controlling the weather over the Northeast and New England. […]

Short-Lived Weather Smorgasbord

A strong frontal boundary propelled southward by a piece of arctic energy is likely to cross the region on Friday. While this feature looks relatively innocuous on our surface charts, it has the looks of a system that may deliver a couple of hours of interesting/crazy weather to New England…including […]
