Monday 5/25/20

Good morning. At this time, on this very strange holiday weekend, I’d like to thank all those who have served in the military – and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Thank you.

We are going to get stereotypical “Memorial Day weekend weather” for most of this week following a Memorial Day weekend that has featured weather that is actually much closer to typical of the weekend for our region with highs in the 60s. (The average high is 73 degrees for May 25.) For those who haven’t put in the AC’s yet, today is your last day where you won’t need one until this weekend: With skies turning partly sunny this afternoon, expect a high around 71 today, with a light southeast wind. Tonight will be partly cloudy and 56, with a calm wind.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny, with the heat being cranked up for a high around 85, along with a south wind around 5 mph. Tuesday night will be mostly clear and warm, with a low around 63, and a southwest wind around 5 mph.

Wednesday looks likely to be our first 90 degree day of the year, with mainly sunny skies; Wednesday night will be mostly clear and 66. Thursday will be partly cloudy and 88. Thursday night will be mostly cloudy and 67, with a chance of showers during the overnight hours. To wrap up the work week, Friday will be partly sunny and 85, with a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. This weekend will be much cooler with highs in the low to mid 70s along with mostly sunny conditions.

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!
