An area of low pressure passed south of the region first thing this morning, spreading a shield of steady – and in some cases, heavy – rain across the area. Rainfall totals generally ranged from about 1/2 to 1 inch around the Cape, with some spots seeing a bit less […]

Lots of Thunder and Lightning…But Some Much Needed Rain

A cluster of showers and thunderstorms crossed over the Cape late last evening bringing the area some much needed rainfall. The rain did come at a bit of a price however, as several lightning strikes were reported, causing a couple of house-fires and knocking out power and internet to some […]

Cape Cod Bay Buoy Water Temperature

Water Temps Climbing

We are getting into the dog days of summer…when clouds and rain become less and less frequent and temperatures top out in the 80s on almost a daily basis. Of course lots of strong July and August sunshine and warm air temperatures means our shallow coastal bays, harbors, salt ponds […]

2PM Temperatures and Visible Satellite Image

Cloudy and Chilly

It is impressively chilly by July standards across New England today. The early afternoon temperatures – when we typically see some of warmest readings of the day – look more like early May than July. Note the marine layer and cool onshore flow has made it all the way into […]

Areas of Dense Fog Likely Overnight

The warm and humid airmass lifting northward into the region is yielding areas of fog this evening…and this fog should become quite expansive and rather thick overnight.  Expect visibilities to lower to 1/2 mile or less later tonight, with some spots possibly seeing “Near Zero” visibility at times. A Dense […]

Thursday Afternoon Temperatures and Visible Satellite Image

Pleasant Summer Conditions

Temperatures peaked in the upper 70s and lower 80s across most of the Cape today…with all four climate sites – Falmouth, Hyannis, Chatham and Provincetown – recording a high temperature of 81F. Of course some backyard thermometers topped out in the middle 80s and it was a bit cooler right […]

Few Holes in the Overcast

Low clouds and fog have lifted and thinned out a bit over the course of the morning and the thickest of the mid and high level clouds are west of the area. As a result, there are some holes in the overcast here and there and this will be the […]

T-Storm Threat Friday Night

We’ll have to keep our eyes on the radar tomorrow night for a few isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms across SNE. A strong upper level disturbance sliding SE from Canada into New England with an accompanying surface front will be the main driving mechanisms for thunderstorm development. The […]

NAM Model Very Aggressive With Backdoor Cold Front

Big Late Week Cool-down?

A seemingly innocuous area of low pressure will cut through New England Thursday night and move into the waters east of New England on Friday. Although this weather feature is quite weak – and on some models, hard to even find in the pressure fields – it is going to […]

Near to Below Normal Temps

Temperatures finally jumped into the 70s and even passed 80F in spots late last week and into the first part of Memorial Day Weekend. In fact, Hyannis officially touched 80F on Thursday the 26th, marking the first time in 2016. While temperatures were cooler on Sunday and Monday, the summer-like […]

Backdoor Front Over the Area Sunday Midday

“Interesting” Weather Day on Sunday

A relatively weak backdoor front is going to move into eastern parts of New England Sunday morning and stall out before lifting back to the north Sunday evening and night. The timing and position of this boundary has been a big forecast question all week as the temperature gradient across […]

Rainfall Ending Sunday Evening

Rain, Wind, Likely Saturday Night Into Sunday

We have two more days of nice weather to go before things go downhill. Friday and most of Saturday should be quite nice around the region with sunshine and mild temperatures – highs nearing 70F Friday afternoon, in fact, and probably getting pretty close to that mark on Saturday as […]
