Good afternoon!

Since there wasn’t a post yesterday for Veterans Day, I just want to start by thanking all the brave men and women who have served in uniform as well as their families, who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. As a country we are forever thankful.

Today will stay sunny with a high around 49, and a southwest wind around 5 mph. Tonight will turn cloudy, with a low around 35, and a light southeast wind. Rain is likely late in the night; a few snowflakes might be mixed in as well. Expect up to an inch of rain tomorrow, with a high around 50, and a light southeast wind that will turn to the northwest at 5-15 mph in the afternoon. Rain will end in the evening tomorrow, giving way to decreasing clouds tomorrow night with a low around 27. Winds will be west at 5-15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph possible.

Very cold conditions for this time of year arrive Wednesday, with a high around 33 with sunny skies for both Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday night will be clear and 17. Thursday night will turn cloudy fairly quickly, with a low around 27, and snow likely late in the night before changing to rain early Friday morning. It’s possible that light accumulations are possible Thursday night into Friday morning, but it is too early to get into specifics. If accumulating snow is still a possibility by Wednesday, then we can start thinking about potential details. Regardless, Friday will feature a cold rain, with a high around 39.

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!
