Sunny Monday with Falling Temperatures

Good morning!

We had a high today of 69 degrees at midnight, and have been falling since. Currently temperatures lie around 63 degrees, and will fall to around 56 by sunset. (By the way, this evening’s sunset will be the final sunset at or after 6 PM of 2017.) Winds will be northwest at 10-15 mph, and skies will become mostly sunny.

Tonight will be clear and 33, with a frost advisory out from 3 to 8 AM tomorrow morning. A freeze is still possible, but winds may be just strong enough early in the night to keep us above freezing tonight – winds will be northwest at 5-10 mph with gusts up to 20 mph, especially early.

Tomorrow, we will have a high of 56, with sunny skies and a northwest wind around 5 mph. Tomorrow night a warm front passes through with a wind shift to the west-southwest, but we will still be able to drop down to 39 degrees with clear skies.


With the warm front, we return to above average warmth with highs in the 68-71 range and sunny skies for the final three days of the workweek. Another warmup is likely for the weekend.


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!
