Storms to Start, Turning Mostly Sunny

First, a pause to remember the victims of the horrible terrorist act fifteen years ago today. We will never forget that horrible day, 9/11/01.

Right now, a line of strong to severe thunderstorms is draped across western NH and western MA this morning. They are moving east-northeast and will be through NH and MA by late morning. Damaging winds and torrential rain are possible in addition to frequent lightning. Move indoors immediately when threatening weather approaches, and stay away from windows.

The storms are associated with a cold front, which will gradually bring down the humidity throughout the day. By the evening it will be significantly less humid than this morning and yesterday. High temperatures will reach the upper 70s to mid 80s. Winds will turn to the west and northwest and be around 10-20 mph with some higher gusts.

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!
