Good morning! Welcome to September!

With partly cloudy skies today, expect a high around 77, with a southeast wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will be mostly cloudy and 59, with a southeast wind around 5 mph. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and 75, with a chance of showers, and a southeast wind of 5-10 mph. I would expect any showers to be intermittent, with most of the day being dry. Wednesday night will be mostly cloudy and 67, with a south wind around 5 mph.

Just a quick tidbit regarding the month of September and daylight – if you thought August was bad in terms of the sunset time being earlier, just wait. Today’s sunset is 7:18 pm; on September 30, the sunset time is 6:27 pm….just in time for the start end of the NHL season playoffs. Yes, I will still watch hockey despite the Bruins getting knocked out last night. In terms of overall daylight, we lose over 80 minutes this month.

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!
