Dracut Weather on Apple News; 11 AM 9/15/17 TS Jose Update

Good afternoon everyone!!! I have some exciting news!

Effective this afternoon, Dracut Weather is now on Apple News! Apple News is on every iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch running iOS 9 or later (the most recent iOS version is iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11 releases to the public next week, so most users should be fine.) You can subscribe to my channel there, and I am looking for a way to send out push notifications like I see CNN and others do(although that function might be reserved for the big companies, ESPN on Apple News does not have push notifications so that makes me optimistic that I could have them).

You can go to the News app on your Apple device and search Dracut Weather, or if you are on your Apple device reading this now, click this link and you will automatically be forwarded to the app, where you can subscribe to the feed: https://apple.news/TNwECMWz8SQWi515FhG2rgw

I sent out my first post a few minutes ago (and of course, as soon as I hit publish, the temperature here surged from 78 to 81). Check it out! And just so you know, updates will continue here, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

As of 11 AM, TS #Jose was still a high end tropical storm with 70 mph winds. Hurricane hunters are investigating to see if #Jose is a hurricane again. The storm still has a good chance of nearing our region around Wednesday as a high end tropical storm or potentially low end hurricane. Stay tuned for more! I have work from 4 to 8 so I won’t have the 5 PM NHC update out right away.

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!
