    Rain ends on Cape Cod early as the ocean storm intensifies and race into the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Another cold front from southeast Canada will race across New England Friday afternoon, merging with the Maritimes storm. That means a few showers or a thunderstorm Friday, but most of the day is dry, with highs near 70. Wind shifting and increasing from the northwest late in the day.

    Another batch of cold air is here early Saturday with a possible late season freeze. As the front merges of the Canadian low, we may have a bit of snow in the mountains of New Hampshire and Maine Friday night and early Saturday. Low temperatures in the 20s and 30s will be close to record cold.
