Much Cooler Today For Most

Good morning!

With a primarily easterly wind at 5-10 mph, expect highs to reach the upper 70s to low 80s across southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts, except in the mid 70s at the coast and, depending on how far the backdoor front progresses, perhaps mid to upper 80s in southwest NH and adjacent sections of north-central MA, but that is still a wild card. This is a tough forecast, except in that it’s pretty clear that interior areas of Northeast MA and Southeast NH will only crack the low 80s at best.

Skies will be mainly cloudy and there will be a chance of afternoon showers and storms, especially in warmer locations. SPC has highlighted Western/Central MA, Southwest NH, all of VT, interior CT and northern RI in a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms, and a slight risk in southwest VT and northwest MA. Heavy rain, frequent lightning and strong winds are the main threats with some instances of damaging winds possible.

I should note that there are heat advisories and excessive heat warnings in south central MA, northern RI and all of CT for today. My heat safety graphics are in yesterday’s post.

The high heat returns for all tomorrow.

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!
