8/31/15 – Welcome!

Welcome to my new weather blog! I’m Nathan Coram – a sophomore at Dracut High School, and an aspiring meteorologist. I plan to post forecasts/blog updates daily here, starting soon, as a presence expansion in addition to my Twitter account. Forecasts will generally be for the Dracut, Mass. area, but will also include other areas of New England. As long as I can get into the habit, there will be updates. I already do a weather report Friday mornings over the DHS intercom – while I am preferring a NWS or private sector meteorology career path, the intercom report is mostly because it is an efficient way for students, faculty and administrators – particularly those not on social media – to be in the know about dangerous weather, and to plan their weekend beach or skiing trip during calmer weather.

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!
