Mid and Lower Cape school children take a rainy day off
Mid Cape roads become slippery around 5 p.m.
Even though for most of Cape Cod the day was a dud as snow goes, the white stuff began to fall on he Upper Cape in Bourne around 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. In anticipation of a blizzardy hump day, many Cape schools canceled classes leaving parent with kids to care for and rainy day cabin fever.
A mixture of snow and rain (mostly rain) began on the Mid Cape in the morning, but quickly turned to rain only in the afternoon with temperatures in the mid-30s. But David Curran's video (above) shows a different story Wednesday afternoon at the Bourne Rotary and along Main Street in the Upper Cape town.
Evening classes have been canceled and several Cape chamber monthly meetings have been rescheduled. Details are available in our calendar.
Yesterday's forecast warned of snow starting early in the day on the Upper and Mid Cape with expected accumulations of 6 to 10 inches varying by region. That forecast has been adjusted to heavier accumulations of 4 to 8 inches this evening into Thursday leaving the possibility for additional cancellations.
We will update this page with news and cancellations if and when they become available.
