Good morning!

With mostly cloudy skies and a chance of showers, especially this afternoon, expect a high around 47, along with a northwest wind of 5-10 mph, gusting up to 25 mph. Tonight will be mostly clear and 32, along with a northwest wind of 5-10 mph, gusting up to 20 mph.

Tomorrow will be sunny and around 45, with a northwest wind at 5-10 mph. Tomorrow night will be mostly clear and near 27, with a light northwest wind.

Looking beyond that, Friday will be a lot like Thursday: nice but unseasonably chilly, with a high of 48 and a morning low of 27. We’ve been lucky with most of the weekends so far this fall, but this weekend is going to be very bad for outdoor activities. Friday night will have a low around 30, as a Nor’Easter moves in Saturday morning, which will likely drop a few inches of rain on the area.

Our first snowfall is also possible Saturday morning as precipitation might start early enough to the point where it’s cold enough to support snow that morning, but from Saturday afternoon all the way through the end of the storm on Sunday, expect all rain. (It will be a bit too warm Saturday night to support snow.) Any snowfall in this area is not expected to cause accumulations. However, to the north and west in some of the higher elevations, minor accumulations are possible. Regardless, the heavy rainfall and potential for gusty winds will be the main impact from this weekend’s storm system. Expect a high of 44 on Saturday, a low of 36 Saturday night, and a high of 48 Sunday. As for Sunday, rain is likely, at least in the morning; the storm system will pull away at some point Sunday, but there is a wide range of potential solutions for Sunday afternoon’s weather, so I wouldn’t go planning outdoor activities then.

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!
