1-24-2018: Mostly Sunny Wednesday

Good morning!
There are some slick spots left over this morning, even with temperatures hovering mostly just above freezing, so take it slow. A front will move through within the next few hours, allowing for drying and clearing skies. Expect a high around 36, but realistically, that high will take place in the next few hours before temperatures slip back into the low 30s throughout the course of the morning and eventually into the 20s this afternoon. Winds will turn to the west-northwest at 5-10 mph with some gusts over 20 mph possible. Tonight will get down to around 14 degrees, along with mostly clear skies and a northwest wind around 5 mph.
Tomorrow will have a high around 26, along with sunny skies and a northwest wind at 5-10 mph with gusts over 20 mph possible at times. Tomorrow night will be clear and 9, with a continuing northwest wind at 5-10 mph with some gusts over 20 mph possible.
Beyond that, Friday returns to average with a high around 32, and then mild weather is forecast for the weekend with a high around 50 Saturday and 44 Sunday, but with the caveat that rain is likely for Sunday.
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!
