DAYS 1-5 (DECEMBER 28-JANUARY 1)
No changes. Arctic cold continues. Ocean-effect snow showers may occur on outer Cape Cod tonight due to a more northerly wind flow. A snow threat still exists Saturday from a clipper system passing by the region, and will serve to reinforce the cold air in time for New Year’s Eve celebrations and the first day of 2018. Details…
