8/8/17 Morning Update

Good morning!

With mostly cloudy skies, expect a high around 74, along with a north wind at 5-10 mph. There is a slim chance (~15%) of an isolated shower or thunderstorm this afternoon, but the vast majority of locations in the general New England area are going to stay dry for the rest of today and any showers or storms should be brief.

Below is the 7 day forecast for Dracut. This is not the nicest of outlooks. Wednesday and Thursday are the picks of the week, with highs in the mid 80s with plentiful sunshine. Friday looks to be decent, with partial sunshine, highs in the low 80s, and only a slim chance of a shower. Saturday through Monday will feature a chance of showers in an uncertain and unsettled pattern each day, with variable temperatures from the mid 70s to low 80s.

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!
