Chilly Saturday

Good morning!

With cloudy skies and showers today – with an isolated rumble of thunder also possible – expect a high around 54 degrees, along with a northeast wind at 5-10 mph with gusts to 20 mph possible. This is well below the average high of 69 for this date (and if anyone is wondering, the average low is 44.) Things clear out late this evening as the winds die down, and tonight will bottom out at around 38 degrees. If this indeed verifies, it will be our first time with a temperature in the 30s in Dracut since May 9, when the low was 34 degrees.

We will start October off on a nice note tomorrow with a high around 67, which is right around seasonable norms – the average high for tomorrow is 68 and the average low is 43. Winds will be light and skies will be sunny. Tomorrow night features a low of around 39, along with clear skies and light winds (and there is a possibility we could actually go lower than that.)

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!
