Guidebook Cape Cod ~ Climate

  

 

Because Cape Cod stands guard offshore from the New England land mass, swaddled in both cold and warm waters, its weather is unique to the region. Winters, it is warmed by the ocean and, summers, it is cooled by those same waters. It is rare during even the most sultry summer day for there not to be a cooling ocean breeze (incidentally, at one time, there were more than 1,000 windmills lining the shores of Cape Cod, availing themselves of the prevailing winds to grind grains and power pumps for salt works). Similarly, when the balance of New England is painted white by snow, a true snowfall is rare on Cape Cod. Once again, the oceans work their magic in maintaining the Cape’s rather temperate climate. As the Cape is, on average, only about six miles wide, no piece of Cape land is any further from the ocean’s intervening.
