Updated 1:30 pm: Dry air aloft can be a forecast killer. Virtually full sunshine has appeared pretty much everywhere except Southeast MA and RI. Expect highs in the mid to upper 70s for most – warmest in western New England, perhaps in the low 80s in northwest Vermont.

Good morning!

Regarding Hermine, it appears that most spots in northern MA and southern NH are going to stay dry with a slight chance of an afternoon shower – the best chance for rain is merely a chance and tomorrow. Winds here for today will be your run-of-the-mill northeast 5-15 mph winds, strongest at the coast. What I said last night about points south of Boston still applies, though. Clouds will be the rule today for most; although the sun has made a few attempts to peek out, I think it will be mostly unsuccessful in doing so around here, but beyond southern NH and southwest coastal Maine, skies should be mostly sunny up north and in Vermont.

High temperatures for today will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s around here, as well as points further south. If vacationing up north or in western New England, expect highs in the mid 70s to low 80s.

Have a nice Labor Day!

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!
