Good morning!

With partly cloudy skies today, expect a high around 77, with a north wind around 5 mph, shifting to the east around 5-10 mph. There is a bit of variability in the temperature forecast for today; I expect at least some sunshine today, but it’s certainly not impossible that if clouds are stubborn we could get stuck a few degrees cooler than the forecast. On the flip side, if there is more sunshine than anticipated, we could approach 80 degrees. The last two days have fallen short of the forecast highs, though, and today will feature yet another easterly wind at times, so I’d be personally inclined to take the under today as well. Either way, skies turn mostly cloudy tonight, with a low around 63, with a southeast wind around 5 mph, turning light out of the south, accompanied by a chance of showers and thunderstorms overnight.

Tuesday will be warmer, with a high around 84 along with mostly sunny skies, and a west wind of 5-10 mph. Tuesday night will be partly cloudy and 58, with a light northwest wind.

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!
