Dreary Columbus Day with Rain

Good morning, and my apologies for the late post!

With rain today – heavy at times and with some embedded thunderstorms – expect a high around 74, as well as a south wind at 5-15 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. This afternoon, the radar will have to be watched closely as we are in a low CAPE / high wind shear situation and an isolated severe storm cannot be fully ruled out as such.

Tonight will get down to 65 degrees with early night rain with embedded storms. Some rain may be heavy at times. Winds will stay out of the south at 5-15 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. There could even be some clearing late tonight, but that might be overridden by some fog.

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!
