Mostly Sunny Thursday With Storm Chances

Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies, expect highs in the mid 80s to low 90s, along with west winds at 5-10 mph. There is a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, and then there is a chance of thunderstorms tonight, mostly before 1 AM or so. Strong to severe storms are possible, mainly with the overnight batch; damaging winds are the main severe threat, with heavy rain and lightning also in the cards. However, significant uncertainty remains about how much, if any, of the nighttime area of showers and storms we will see, as there is a fairly large chance it passes well to our south. If I can get an update out this evening, I’ll update the status of the situation.

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!
