Temperatures have been a bit cooler than average to end the week, but according to meteorologist Phil Burt, of CapeCodWeather.net, our best chance for a hard frost comes next Tuesday.

Brisk Fall Weather Comes Our Way This Week

After a lovely, balmy week in which temperatures topped 70 degrees in places on Cape Cod, our weather pattern is shifting. Meteorologist Phil Burt of CapeCodWeather.net says we should expect temperatures to "step down" over the next few days, as cooler weather arrives by the latter half of next week.  That means low-mid 60s for the weekend, and lower 60s early in the week. By Thursday and Friday next week, expect daytime temperatures in the low-mid 50s, and overnight temperatures in the 30s. Get that firewood ready!

Last week's holiday weekend was mostly a washout, with temperatures in upper 50s - chilly and raw, plenty of rain and wind. Now, what a difference a week makes! Thanks to a stable and relatively uniform air mass, our above-average warm weather of Thursday and Friday should continue through the weekend. Meteorologist Phil Burt of CapeCodWeather.net notes rain heading our way for Monday, then by mid-week a return to fine weather.

The good news? The Cape and Islands will not be catching the 40-degree daytime temperatures coming to other parts of Massachusetts. Still, one remembers other Memorial Day weekends, sunny and warm... Not this time! Meteorologist Phil Burt of CapeCodWeather.net says weather forecasters have been watching the unseasonably cold system, caused by a dip in the jet stream, making its way toward us, and it's been tricky to gauge just what it means for our weekend forecast.
