Rain Then A Flash Freeze

Good morning!

Rain showers are overspreading the region now. Expect high temperatures to be pretty close to what they are now: mid 40s to mid 50s. Temperatures begin falling within an hour or two and by 5 PM, temperatures are in the mid 30s to around 40. Subfreezing temps move in starting around 5 PM; by 8 PM almost everyone is subfreezing with a large majority of those locales being in the 20s. Tonight’s lows end up in the single digits and teens.

Winds start southwest, and change to northwest with the frontal passage. Peak winds are around 10-15 mph, with gusts in the 20s.

Have a great day!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 19 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am going into 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, helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
