Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies today, expect a high around 96, with a southwest wind of 5-15 mph, gusting up to 25 mph. There is a very slim chance of a shower or thunderstorm today, just like the last two days, but I expect conditions to stay dry. There is also a HEAT ADVISORY for today and tomorrow, as heat index values will reach around 100 at times today and over 95 tomorrow. Tonight will be mostly clear and 74, with a southwest wind of 5-10 mph.

As mentioned, the heat advisory continues into Wednesday, with a high around 90, accompanied by partly sunny skies and a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mostly in the afternoon and evening. The chance for storm activity is significantly higher tomorrow than it is today. Expect a southwest wind of 5-10 mph. Wednesday night will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 67, a southwest wind around 5 mph, and a chance of showers and thunderstorms early.

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!
