Good morning!

For a brief time, heat and humidity have made their way back into the region, as temperatures rose to the upper 60s overnight; expect a high near 80 today, with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms, some of which could be severe, followed by thunderstorms being likely in the late evening into first half of tonight; again, some of which could be severe. The main threat with severe storms will be potential damaging winds, in addition to the typical heavy rain and lightning. The atmospheric setup for today indicates a low risk for a tornado as well; the highest risk is over Vermont and New Hampshire, but a tornado cannot be ruled out in interior Massachusetts, so this threat will need to be closely monitored during the day.

After thunderstorms pass during the overnight hours, the wind will shift to the north, ushering in cooler and less humid conditions, with a low near 54 tonight and decreasing clouds late. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny and 67, with a north-northeast wind of 5-10 mph; tomorrow night will feature increasing clouds, a low of 49, and a light east wind.

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!
