A Variety of Conditions Today

Good morning!

First, all of New England will be on the blustery side today, with lots of gusts to 25 mph, some higher.

Southern New England can expect skies to gradually turn mostly sunny with highs in the 40s to low 50s, and a chance of rain showers today. The highest winds will be here today, with actually a period of 35-45 mph gusts possible this afternoon.

Northern New England is a whole other story. Expect highs ranging between the upper 20s and low 40s; more showers are likely, primarily in the mountains, where these will likely be in the form of snow. As this whole area of precipitation gets organized as the shortwave moves toward strengthening low pressure, expect mainly 1-3″ where it accumulates (less in VT and parts of northern NH); but as you go further north, Northern Maine will likely see a large swath of 4-8″, and an area of higher amounts 8-10″ (locally higher) looks likely as well. This will occur through the overnight hours tonight.

Have a great Thursday!

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!
