Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies, expect a high around 80 today, along with an east wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight, skies will turn cloudy with rain likely late in the night, along with a low near 63 and an east wind of 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow will be cloudy with rain likely at times, along with a chance of thunderstorms, and a high near 82; the wind will be southeast at 5-10 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. In addition, the humidity will increase significantly in the morning. There is even a fairly slim chance of a tornado happening somewhere in the region tomorrow, with fairly high wind shear and helicity; a very similar setup to tomorrow produced the 2016 Concord tornado and the 2014 Revere tornado, so it’s definitely a possibility. Just something to keep an eye out on all day.

Moving to tomorrow night, expect a chance of showers, cloudy skies, a low near 70, and a southeast wind of 5-10 mph.

While not nearly as bad as Sunday, next week isn’t going to be that great with a chance of showers every day and a chance of thunderstorms Tuesday, along with very high humidity with dew points constantly over 70. The only good news is that highs will be in the low to mid 80s, so outdoor activities won’t be impossible during breaks in the weather, but a lot of rain is likely over the next week or so.

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!
