Cold Thanksgiving

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving!!
Today is going to be on the chilly side by late November standards. Sunny skies will rule the morning, with very few clouds through noontime. Winds will be northwest at around 5 mph this morning, and for today’s Dracut Middies home football game against Methuen, it will be around 33 at the 10 AM kickoff, 35 at halftime, and 37 at the end of the game.
Shortly after the game, the wind will turn to the west, staying around 5 mph, and skies will become partly cloudy. The high will be around 39 today, which is 9 degrees below the average high of 48. For tonight, expect mostly clear skies – with most of the clouds being early on – and a low around 26. Winds will stay out of the west at around 5 mph. Overall, tonight is going to be a fairly standard-issue night for this time of year, as the average low for tonight is 28.
Have a great day and Happy Thanksgiving again!

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!
