Another Frigid Night on Cape Cod; Moderating Temps in the Forecast

HYANNIS – It was another bone-chilling blast of cold air across the Cape and Islands Monday night.

Temperatures dipped back into the single digits with wind chills well below zero.

Ocean effect snow coated the Lower and Outer Cape with a dusting to an inch overnight.

Forecasters said the temperatures will moderate slightly on Tuesday in the upper 20’s.

Even milder weather is coming on Wednesday and Thursday with rain and temperatures in the upper 40’s to near 50.

The National Weather Service had forecast that temperatures would be more than 20 degrees below normal across the Northeast on Monday and Tuesday.

The weather caused significant delays at airports around the Northeast on Sunday and Monday.

And after a few weather-related delays Sunday, Amtrak restored all scheduled service Monday.

Atop the Northeast’s highest mountain, the temperature fell to minus 23 degrees Monday morning and dropped to minus 31 later in the afternoon, according to the Facebook page for Mount Washington Observatory, in New Hampshire.

Wind chills were hovering around minus 80.
