Today's Weather: Some Light Snow On Cape Cod

The weather continues to stay dry, but there is an exception today. As colder air rushes in over the relatively warm Atlantic, there could be some snow showers over Cape Cod. These types of situations usually don't amount to very much just a minor dusting to perhaps an inch or two in isolated communities. Many places won't see more than a few flurries. There's the outside chance that a couple of the snow showers make it into Plymouth County, but it's highly unlikely that Boston or points west will see anything more than a flake in the air.

Winds will be a bit brisk today, making it feel in the 20s. The past few days we haven't seen much wind so although it's been chilly it has felt relatively comfortable.

Tomorrow is another dry day with winter temperatures. The ice continues to grow thick, but some of the lakes and ponds are not covered with ice that is deep enough for all activities. Generally, you need at least three inches of ice for the average person to walk and more than that if you're going to start putting vehicles on top of it.

Another storm system moves towards the area on Friday. The rain will hold off until sometime Saturday and I don't expect that the entire day is a washout but there will be clouds throughout the day.

Sunday should be a drier day with seasonably chilly temperatures. We will have to watch another storm system to be sure it stays offshore.
