Good morning!

With rain this afternoon, expect a high around 67, along with an east wind at 5-10 mph; gusts to 20 mph are possible. Rain continues tonight, along with a low near 62, and a southeast wind of 5-10 mph.

While not as steady tomorrow, showers and thunderstorms will be likely at times tomorrow, with a high near 79 and a south wind generally around 5 mph. Isolated severe thunderstorms could develop with stronger winds and heavy rain during the afternoon hours. Tomorrow night will feature a diminishing chance of showers, a low near 64, and a calm wind.

Going through the rest of the week, it won’t be particularly sunny, but temperatures will be fairly consistent, around 80 for Wednesday, 81 on Thursday, and 80 again for Friday, with lows of 65 on Thursday morning and 59 on Friday morning, with Wednesday and Thursday being partly sunny to mostly cloudy, and Friday being mostly sunny. Anyone who will be on the coastal waters late this week should be aware of rough surf being propagated by Hurricane Florence, which is currently expected to pose no other threats to our region, as a ridge of high pressure immediately to our north will keep the storm well to our south.

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!
