Good morning!!!! Welcome back to school for both my Dracut followers and for my new fellow UMass Lowell students – UML also starts today!!

With mostly sunny skies today, expect a high around 92, as well as a south wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low around 72, and a southwest wind of around 5 mph.

Tomorrow will be mostly sunny and 92 again, this time with a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms in the afternoon hours. This is followed by an overnight cold front Thursday night; skies will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 61 and a north wind around 5 mph.

Looking after the front’s passage, a marked decrease in temperatures and humidity will take place. Friday and Saturday will both be seasonably cool – Friday will be 77 and partly sunny; Friday night will turn mostly clear and around 54; Saturday will be mostly sunny and 74; Saturday night will be cool with a low around 48; and Sunday will be unseasonably cool with a high around 68 and mostly sunny. That, to me, is perfect weather for the start of the Patriots season, but it won’t last as seasonably warm conditions will likely prevail for most of next week.

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!
