For anyone up and at em’ and getting a line wet ahead of this update, there is a Winter Storm Warning for Cape Cod Bay. There is little information available in regards to what happens if this system makes landfall or if its simply self-contained but this apparent mariner’s report stands until 7 a.m..
The High Wind Warning is also extended through 7 a.m… Usually by this time the most sensational wind gust is recorded in the middle of the runway at the Hyannis airport although it may be assumed that the network issued wind breakers are no match for single digit temperatures and sub-zero wind chills. That said, an unofficial report of 64 was reported out of Truro.
The overnight winds blew as advertised and indeed persist and as someone that had to venture into that fray, I can attest that Jack Frost was punching rather than nipping. While there were zero reported power outages in Orleans, Eastham topped out at 255 early Thursday evening and while quickly remedied, this is where the today’s loop will start.
What looked like a steady diet of rain on tap for Saturday and Sunday now appears to be kicking off with a Winter Weather Advisory which runs from 4 a.m. – noon on Saturday where 1” – 3” of snow may add a bit of nostalgia to the day for those diehard brick and mortar shoppers!
I’m comfortable closing the book on this round yet will of course reach out directly should today’s appointed rounds reveal any issues.
