Light Cape Cod Snowfall Will Lead to High Winds Monday

Snow MapHYANNIS –  Cape Cod is waking up to a light cover of snow this morning, with higher amounts on the Upper Cape and across Southeastern Massachusetts.

A winter weather advisory from the National Weather Service expired overnight, but will be replaced later in the day with a wind advisory.

There were reports of 3 inches in Bourne and West Falmouth, 1 inch in Centerville and half-an-inch in Brewster. Off-Cape, just over 5 inches fell in Kingston and Rockland, while 4 inches fell in Plymouth.

Snow showers on Cape Cod were expected to give way to mostly sunny skies later today, with temperatures dropping into the 20’s.

A wind advisory for all of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket will go into effect at 5 p.m. Monday and last until 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

Winds are expected to blow out of the northwest at 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph. That could lead to some isolated power outages as small tree limbs and branches fall.

A wind advisory is issued when sustained winds are forecast to be 31 to 39 mph or gusts will range between 46 and 57 mph.
