Cool Friday, Then Improvements

Good morning!
 
With mostly cloudy skies, a slight chance of showers, and a northeast wind at 10-15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph, expect a high around 68 today. Tonight will be mostly cloudy and 56, with a northeast wind at 5-10 mph and gusts up to 20 mph
 
Tomorrow will feature increasing sunshine, eventually getting mostly sunny with a high around 82 and a north wind around 5 mph. Saturday night will be mostly clear and 63 with a light wind.

Jose turned post-tropical last night and will gradually weaken further. The graphic on Jose below will be my last slide on the storm, barring unexpected developments.

The rest of the 5 day period looks very warm. Today is the autumnal equinox, at 4:02 PM.

However, the Sunday-Tuesday timeframe reads like it is around the summer solstice with highs approaching 90 all three days. Our best shot at 90 will be on Monday. Things will cool off some for Wednesday/Thursday, but those days are uncertain as the progress of Hurricane Maria must be monitored. With that said, Maria is most likely going to miss out to sea – BUT the possibility of an east coast impact is elevated, especially given our geography. Whatever happens with Maria, around this time next week, we can expect the arrival of cool, crisp fall air with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s.

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!
