Cloudy and Balmy With Afternoon Showers For Most

Good morning!

Under generally cloudy skies, expect highs to range through the daylight hours between upper 30s in the highest elevations, otherwise 40-58. After sunset though, as our system nears closer for tomorrow morning’s messy commute, expect temps to rise some, leading to highs technically being (ie through and including 11:59 PM) 43-62, with those same cool temps in the northern mountains and warmest in southern CT.

Expect showers to start moving into VT/Western MA/Western CT early afternoon, mid afternoon for RI, NH, Central/Eastern CT and Central/Eastern MA; and mid afternoon to late evening for Maine, depending on where you are – further west in Maine, earlier, further east, later. In Eastern Maine, don’t expect any showers until after midnight.

More details on the heavy rain threat and timing will come later this morning or early this afternoon, as Dracut High has a half-day due to parent/teacher conferences.

Have a great Thursday!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 20 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am in my junior year at UMass Lowell as a meteorology major. I am the current Vice President of the UML American Meteorological Society Local Student Chapter. Prior to at UML, I attended the Dracut school system for my K-12 years, having graduated from Dracut High in 2018. I first got into weather with the December 2008 ice storm, which knocked out my electricity for 4 days. I had no idea how it could be raining and becoming ice immediately, and how rain can knock out power. (Now I do - warm layer aloft, cold air at surface). But I didn't really get into it until the heat of July 2010 and specifically a few severe weather events during that month, followed by the year 2011, which featured several high profile weather events. Since then I have had a growing interest, and am hoping to make it into the meteorology field, preferably with NOAA/NWS. But for now, I'm blogging here on Dracut Weather (also on Twitter and Facebook), helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
