Very Warm Friday

Good morning!
With partly sunny skies, and a 20% chance of an afternoon shower, expect a high around 73 today. Winds will be southwest at 5-10 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph. There will be a wind shift to the northwest around the 4-6 PM timeframe but the wind speeds will more or less stay the same. That wind shift will be accompanied by clearing skies during Trick-or-Treat hours, which will be a little on the breezy side but very mild, with temperatures starting in the mid 60s at 6 PM and ending around 60 at 8 PM. Overall, a nice night for those going out and collecting candy. Beyond that, skies will be mostly clear with a low around 35. Winds will be northwest at 5-10 mph with gusts up to 25 mph, with the strongest gusts early in the night.
Tomorrow will be partly cloudy and 52, with a calm wind. Tomorrow’s sunset is at 5:34 PM, which is the last post-5 PM sunset of 2017 due to the time change tomorrow night, where we fall back one hour. Tomorrow night will feature a low of 38, with mostly cloudy skies and an east wind around 5 mph. Sunday morning will see a sunrise at 6:24 AM (vs. 7:23 AM tomorrow) due to the time change, and sunsets before 7 AM will rule again from Sunday up until December 5.
Sunday itself will feature a chance of some showers and a high of 59. Sunday night also has a chance of showers, but a much warmer night with a low of 56 before a mild Monday. An abrupt change to a few days of cool conditions (highs will likely only be in the mid 40s on Wednesday) follow the mild Monday.
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!
