Good morning!

With partly cloudy skies, and a chance of a few strong thunderstorms late this afternoon and into the evening, expect a high around 91, with a west wind at 5-10 mph. Thunderstorms this evening could produce strong winds, along with heavy rain and frequent lightning. (An isolated severe thunderstorm with damaging winds cannot be ruled out either.) Due to the combination of the heat and high humidity, heat index values will approach 100, so a Heat Advisory is in effect for this afternoon.

Any showers or thunderstorms will wrap up shortly after sunset, if not before then; tonight will feature mostly cloudy skies, with a low around 66, and a light northwest wind.

Tomorrow will feature skies gradually turning mostly sunny, with a high around 80, and a northeast wind around 5 mph along with vastly lower humidity.

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!
