i hate to do this as we all have our plans and lives suspended, but our forecast schedule is taking us to a great vacation town, Barnstable, which is on Cape Cod.
At 156PM, ET, Barnstable was reporting a temperature of 56 degrees with clear skies. This is a little misleading, however, as an area of low pressure moving through New England is generating bands of rain showers through the region, with a looming band approaching Martha’s Vineyard, with rain reported as close as Newport, Rhode Island and Plymouth, Massachusetts. This is the occluded portion of the evolved area of low pressure, and short term changes won’t be substantial ater this leading round of rain moves through.
After the low moves through, a pocket of cold air will invade and make for a chilly Tuesday. The circulation surrounding the low as it moves into Maritime Canada will bring some flurries to the Adirondacks, and breezes will be stiff on the Cape. Wednesday looks like a more pleasant day, with wind subsiding and warm air encroaching from the southwest.

The tough part about temperature forecasting in Barnstable is that you need to closely monitor the wind direction and speed. Brisk off shore winds will keep it a bit warmer on Tuesday, and light on shore winds will keep it cooler on Wednesday. The radar comes from Long Island, as Boston’s is out today.
