Mostly Cloudy and Breezy in Association with TS Jose

Good morning!
 
With mostly cloudy skies, expect a high around 74 today, with a northeast wind at 10-15 mph with gusts up to 30 mph possible, associated with Tropical Storm Jose. Tonight will feature a low of 56 under mostly cloudy skies, and a northeast wind at 10-15 mph with gusts to 25 mph possible. Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy again, with a 10% chance of a shower and a high of 67. Winds will be – you guessed it – northeast at 10-15 mph with gusts to 25 mph possible! Friday night will be mostly cloudy and 59, with a north wind at 5-10 mph and gusts to 20 mph possible.

With all that wind, I don’t expect any notable wind damage as it isn’t too strong. That said, some small and very weak branches could conceivably fall. Again, aside from maybe a few renegade raindrops tomorrow that have made it this far north (unlikely), any rainfall from Jose is no longer a threat.

Jose is kinda throwing a wrench into this day by day forecast, though we should definitively be out of the clouds by Sunday after a partly sunny Saturday. Things turn hot briefly before a midweek cooldown, and by that point, we also need to be watching the progress of Hurricane Maria.
 
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!
