Good morning!

With sunny skies, expect a high around 19 today, with a northwest wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will be clear, with a low around 2, and a northwest wind of 5-10 mph. Sunday will be partly cloudy and 28, with a light northwest wind.

We’re monitoring our first notable snowstorm in a while. It’s too early for precise details, but a widespread 6-12″ looks likely, with the potential for isolated higher amounts. Snow will likely start Monday afternoon or evening, but the bulk of the storm will be overnight Monday night and Tuesday morning, before winding down Tuesday late morning and afternoon. The main area of uncertainty is how far west the heavy snow shield extends. Most guidance indicates a hit for eastern MA and southeast NH, but it’s more up in the air to our west (though trends are looking favorable for snow to the west). More details will follow throughout the weekend.

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!
