6/17/20 (Early Morning Update) – Significant Heat Ahead

Good morning!

The rest of this current overnight (I’m writing this at midnight) will remain clear, with a low around 49, and a calm wind. Today will be sunny, with a high around 83, and a light southeast wind. Wednesday night (most likely “tonight” by the time you read this) will be clear, with a low around 58, and a calm wind.

Thursday will be sunny, with a high around 90, and a light southwest wind. Humidity will increase a little bit Thursday, but will remain very tolerable, before rising after sunset Thursday and remaining on the humid side through the rest of the upcoming stretch. The low will be around 65 Thursday night, with mostly clear skies and a southwest wind around 5 mph.

Friday will be sunny and 93; Friday night will be mostly clear and 65. Saturday will be mostly sunny and 92; Saturday night will be mostly clear and 67. Sunday will be sunny and 92; Sunday night will be mostly clear and 67. There is a very limited potential that conditions may be favorable for very isolated showers and thunderstorms this weekend, but I don’t think it’s enough to warrant an inclusion on the five day forecast as things will most likely stay completely dry. The chances may increase into early next week as high heat in the low to mid 90s will likely continue.

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!
