5/2/20: Near Perfect Weekend

Good morning! We’re shaping up to have the nicest weather weekend since January in terms of purely high temperatures (Jan. 11-12, a Saturday and Sunday, were both in the 70s for high temperatures), and regardless one of the nicest weather weekends in weeks.

With sunny skies, expect a high around 69 today, with a northwest wind at 10-20 mph and gusts up to 25 mph. The breezy conditions will be the only damper on an otherwise perfect weather day. And if it’s going to be breezy, it’s better if it’s around 70 than around 40 like we have seen so many times in the last month.

Tonight will turn mostly cloudy, with a chance of a scattered rain showers just before and around sunrise, with a low around 51, and a light wind.

Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy early with a slight chance of a shower around and just after sunrise, then skies will turn mostly sunny in the morning and early afternoon, with a high around 75, and a wind turning to the west at 5-10 mph. I’d call tomorrow the pick of the weekend despite the potential for an early shower due to a warmer temperature and lighter wind.

Clouds will again be on the increase tomorrow night, with a low around 53, and a light west wind.

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!
