1-16-2018 Update #1

Good morning!

With mostly cloudy skies, expect a high around 28 today, and a calm wind. Tonight, snow moves in after 11 PM or so (there may be some light snow prior to that, but the bulk will be after 11 PM) and the low will be 23.

Snow continues steadily for the overnight, with the heaviest snowfall from the morning rush hour through late morning before snow winds down in the afternoon. All in all, a widespread 6-9″ is likely for snow totals. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 1 AM until 6 PM tomorrow. Tomorrow will have a high of 30 and tomorrow night will feature a low of 19.

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!
