5/1/20: Significant Improvement in Weekend Weather

Good morning!

With additional showers possible today but the bulk of the rain over, expect a high around 59 today, with a south wind at 5-10 mph. Given the earlier timing of the system’s departure, the overall weekend forecast has improved significantly since Wednesday; tonight will have decreasing clouds, a low around 46, and a calm wind.

Tomorrow now looks to be mostly sunny, with a high around 68, and a northwest wind of 10-15 mph and gusts over 20 mph possible. Saturday night will be partly cloudy and 49, with a light northwest wind. Sunday looks to be a little cloudier than first forecast, but still with at least partly sunny skies and a high around 72. Given the improvement in Saturday’s forecast I still think the overall weekend forecast has improved, compared to the original possibility of showers on Saturday from earlier this week.

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!
