Partly Cloudy Tuesday with Strong Night Storms Possible

Good morning!

With partly cloudy skies, expect highs in the upper 80s to low 90s (except mid 80s in higher elevations of southern NH). Heat index values could reach the mid 90s in spots with very humid conditions (dewpoints in the upper 60s to low 70s). Winds will be southwest at 5-15 mph, with gusts of 25-40 mph possible.

An isolated shower or thunderstorm is not out of the question through the afternoon, and then some showers and thunderstorms are likely from late evening and into the overnight hours. A storm or two could be strong to severe with damaging winds possible, along with torrential rainfall, mainly in western areas, but the better chance for severe weather is well to the west. The storms will weaken as they move east, which will likely be after midnight, but the line may hold together to bring briefly gusty winds and heavy rains in eastern areas. Later tomorrow morning a cold front moves through the area, bringing a much less humid airmass to the region.

Have a great 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!
