Forecast: Thursday, March 5, 2020
Partly cloudy tonight. Low 30s.
Increasing clouds Friday with a few rain showers for the afternoon. Mid to upper 40s. Friday night, potent area of low pressure rapidly strengthens off the coast. Light rain showers change to light snow showers. The storm will be a monster, but far enough off the coast to bring more in the way of fringe effects rather than a direct hit. Locations closest to the low (Cape Cod, Islands, Plymouth County SE Mass) will have the strongest winds with gusts 40-50 MPH, elsewhere gusts 30-40 MPH. As for snow accumulations, grassy surface accumulation of an inch possible, except for Cape Cod and Nantucket…around 3″ there. Temps fall back to the upper 20s.
Saturday, the strong coastal low will swiftly move away. Clearing during the morning, but the winds will remain strong through the morning and early afternoon. A blustery day with high temps in the low 40s. Saturday night, less wind and clear. A colder night with lows in the mid 20s.
