Average Friday

Good morning!

With sunny skies, expect a high around 63 today. Winds will be light in the morning, then turn southeast at 5-10 mph this afternoon. Believe it or not, while 63 feels chilly, it is actually the average high for October 13 – we have had a lot of warmth in the past month. Tonight will feature a low of 49 with mostly cloudy skies and a gradual wind shift to the southwest – winds will be light throughout.

Tomorrow will be 70 and mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers. Winds will be southwest at around 5 mph. Tomorrow night will be 62 and mostly cloudy, with light winds and a chance of showers.


Sunday has partly sunny skies, a slight chance of showers, and a shot at 80 degrees, though clouds may inhibit that. A cold front passes through early Monday morning, and highs in the 50s are likely Monday and Tuesday sandwiched by the possibility of our first freeze of 2017-18 on Monday night. I do realize that’s kind of low relative to most other forecasts right now, but there is fairly high confidence in strong radiational cooling in an already favorable setup, and dewpoints on Monday in the late afternoon favor a night near freezing for Monday night.


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!
