Good morning!

With cloudy skies and rain this afternoon and evening, expect a high around 46, with a calm wind. Expect somewhere around 1″ of rain today and tonight, with a low around 31, a north wind of 5-15 mph overnight, and rain changing over to snow late.

Anywhere from a coating to 3″ of snow is possible tomorrow morning, with accumulation likely done by late morning and all precipitation done early in the afternoon. I think we’ll be somewhere in the neighborhood of an inch or two of snow. In any instance, take it slow on the roads tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow will have a high around 37, with skies otherwise beginning to clear toward the later stages of the afternoon, along with a north wind of 5-15 mph. Friday night will turn clear and cold, with a low around 20, and a light northwest wind.

Going into the weekend, Saturday will be sunny and 43, with a light wind. For those who do partake in Halloween activities, you’ll want to wear warm layers, a face covering, and partake in social distancing as temperatures will be in the 30s during the evening with the wind staying light. Saturday night will be mostly clear and 26. We start off November with increasing clouds Sunday, along with a chance of afternoon showers and a high around 54. Showers end early Sunday night, with a low around 32 and partly cloudy skies. Monday will be mostly sunny with a high around 42. Going slightly outside of the five-day window, Monday night and Tuesday look to be very cold with a low near the 20 degree mark and highs in the middle 30s favored at this point. Things then warm up considerably toward the later stages of next week, with highs in the 60s a possibility next Thursday and Friday depending on how things play out after a day in the 50s Wednesday.

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!
