Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies today and tomorrow, expect a high around 87 both days, with a light and variable wind both days. Tonight and tomorrow night will be mostly clear, with a low of 64 tonight and 66 tomorrow night, with a calm wind tonight and a light south wind tomorrow night.

Going forward, Hurricane Isaias (pronounced ees-ah-EE-ahs) is likely to take a trip up the East Coast this weekend into next week. It is likely that Isaias will have some impact on our region, most likely some time around Tuesday. The exact impact is unclear at this time, but at a minimum some rain is likely. The National Hurricane Center forecast track has Isaias passing right through southeastern Massachusetts as a tropical storm, as does most current guidance, so stay tuned for further updates. While the current pattern is favorable for a storm track right up the east coast, there is still plenty of time for the track to shift away from us. I wouldn’t panic, but be ready for the possibility of a tropical system impacting the area. See below the latest cone from the NHC.


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!
