12-09-2017 Update #1

Good morning!
Not much has changed – timing and everything still on track: picking up late morning, steady snow through the rest of the day and much of the night. I just decided to combine the 3-6 and 6-8 inch zones and tweak it into a big 4-8 inch zone since some people in the northern half of the 6-8 might end up with 5 or so. Still, right around 6″ is likely for Dracut. North wind throughout.
Today itself will feature a high of 31 and tonight will get down to 28. After that, tomorrow has a chance of morning snow showers, with partly sunny skies and a high of 37. West wind around 5-10 mph. Tomorrow night will be mostly clear and 19 with a calm wind.
After that, Monday is dry and mostly sunny, around 33. A snow event is looking likely on Tuesday morning that could drop a few inches of snow – and, more importantly, be a poorly timed travel nuisance. After that, we enter the icebox with highs around 20 for the rest of next week – and possibly not breaking 20 at times, with lows in the single digits starting Wednesday night.
Have a great day and stay safe!

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!
