Strong Winds Persist, Snow Likely Late Wednesday

HYANNIS – The Cape and Islands were spared from any major damage from the high winds that impacted the state on Monday.

One of the highest recorded gusts on Cape Cod was 63 mhp in Truro.

There were also gusts of 60 mhp and higher in Marstons Mills and the Otis Air Force Base on Joint Base Cape Cod.

A peak gust of 53 mhp was measured on Nantucket.

Many parts of interior Massachusetts suffered tree damage and experienced power outages.

While the winds were expected to lessen on Tuesday, gusts up to 35 mhp were still forecast for Cape Cod.

And later in the week, the National Weather Service said much of the state could see 2 to 4 inches of snow late Wednesday into early Thursday morning.

The snow is likely to overspread the area from west to east by mid-afternoon.
