Good morning!

After a showery last two days, dry weather will prevail, albeit with mostly cloudy skies and a high near 67, accompanied by a north wind around 5 mph. Tonight will be mostly cloudy and 51, along with a calm wind.

Tomorrow will be partly cloudy, with a slight chance of afternoon showers and a high near 78. Winds will be southwest at 5-10 mph. Tomorrow night will be mostly clear and 48, with a light southwest wind that will turn north early in the night.

The long weekend is going to be absolutely terrific, if a bit on the cool side for the first two days: sunny on Friday and Saturday with highs of 59 and 62 respectively, sandwiched by a clear and cool Friday night that will get down to around 40 – our coolest night in some time if the forecast holds. Sunday will be much warmer, with a high around 79 after a morning low of 53, and mostly sunny skies.

Going beyond the 5 day for a moment, Columbus Day will probably be in the upper 60s to low 70s as an impressive warm ridge for this time of year will make itself known (albeit disrupted by some cloudiness on the holiday). It’s not impossible that we could break 80 several times in the next week and a half, as an early preview pins next Tuesday and Wednesday as days that could end up being particularly warm.

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!
