Dreary and Cool Thursday

Good morning!

Today’s forecast is kind of complicated. The easy stuff: skies are going to be mostly cloudy. There are some showers and thunderstorms likely to pass through in the next few hours, then a lull is likely with only scattered showers and storms, before more widespread showers and storms move back in this evening. Heavy rain is possible with almost any storm, but strong winds are also a threat.

The interesting part lies in today’s high temperatures. You see, we may or may not have already hit our highs for today at midnight, as there is a chance temperatures don’t make it past the mid or upper 60s for the rest of the day (most places peaked in the low 70s around or shortly after midnight). There is also a chance that we could reach similar levels to our earlier highs, largely dependent on how much sun we get later today (and I am not all that optimistic about it). So I’ll say today’s highs will range from the mid 60s to low 70s. Winds will gradually turn to be out of the northeast at 5-10 mph; this northeast flow is the core of the backdoor front giving us these cooler conditions. Things will still be fairly humid today, though.

Have a good 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!
