WATCHING FOR OCEAN EFFECT SNOW
For most, the weather pattern will continue to run quiet with more clouds than sun today. We’ll go from the 30s this morning to highs around 40 degrees - still a bit above average! N to NW winds will collect moisture over the ocean and could stir up some ocean effect snow and rain on the Cape today. The best chance for a few light showers during the day is near Chatham.
Tonight there’s an even better chance for some precipitation across the Cape, perhaps the South Shore and Cape Ann too. A patchy coating - 1″ snowfall is possible.
Temperatures will be cooler Wednesday and Thursday with lots of sunshine. Although chilly compared to recent weather, this is normal for late January!
WATCHING THE WEEKEND
An ocean storm may bring in some rain and snow this weekend. A small change in the storm’s track could mean a big difference to HOW MUCH and WHERE we see accumulation. Check back as we assess the weekend risk and how the storm will develop. It’s too soon to know the extent of the impact. For now, I can say it looks like Saturday has a better chance for a wintry mix. Sunday may see early precipitation with a drying trend.
