Forecast: Mild Day As Sunshine Mixes With Clouds

This article is more than 5 years old.

Another mild day for today as sunshine mixes with clouds. Temperatures will reach near 70 in many spots, but stay in the 50s thanks to the wind off the water over much of Cape Cod and the Islands. The closer to the canal you live, the milder it will be this afternoon.

Showers are back in the forecast overnight as a cold front slips through. The showers will be numerous, but I am not expecting a large amount of rain because the showers won’t last for very long. There could be the rumble of thunder with the passage of the cold front.

Wednesday still looks unsettled, especially the first part of the day with the chance for showers remaining in the forecast east of Route 495 during the morning. In the afternoon, some clearing will take place from west to east, but overall it’s not a great day of weather.

Thursday is bright but blustery as a storm well to our east in Canada drags in some colder air.  Highs will only be in the 50s and with the strong winds it will feel cooler.

Friday is a great day with sunshine, less wind and temperatures near 60. The weekend looks good to start, but the atmosphere is about to undergo a  bit of a transition. These spring transitions can bring clouds, drizzle and cool readings to the area. I’ll be updating more on the Sunday forecast tomorrow.

Tuesday: Partly sunny with highs of 65 to 70. Cooler in the 50s over the mid and outer parts of Cape Cod.

Tuesday night: Showers and the rumble of thunder possible. Lows in the 40s.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with morning showers possible. Highs in the 50s.

Thursday: Sunny with a gusty wind.

Friday: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs around 60.

Weekend: Some clouds and seasonable.
