Hello and welcome to the overnight forecast, that you will likely not notice because of Anthony’s discussion of the tornado that hit his home town, and even the house he grew up in today.
At 146AM, ET, Barnstable was reporting a temperature of 39 degrees with overcast skies. There was an east wind off the Atlantic that was transporting low level moisture through the Cape into a nasty area of low pressure working its way through the Great Lakes. This is the same feature that has led to severe weather in the Mississippi Valley, but has also had the potency to deliver snow to the Upper Midwest.
The East Coast was enduring a serious bout of damming, with warm air grinding to a halt through northern North Carolina, but the warm front aloft was just to the south of New York City. Through sunrise tomorrow, the boundary will lift to the north of Boston, and if the clouds and fog can dissipate at all, things may warm up quite a bit tomorrow, but that doesn’t appear likely. The good news is that the sludge in eastern Massachusetts will prevent thunderstorm development through the state when the cold front sweeps through tomorrow evening. Despite the cold front sweeping through tomorrow night, the clear skies may lend some people the opinion that Saturday is the nicer day, with the sun likely to make an appearance. Unfortunately, the clearing conditions will also mean a drop in temperatures Saturday night

It’s pretty weird to see the day AFTER the cold front moves through be the non standard day, but that’s just the power of lingering backwash clouds. Here is the current satellite imagery.
