A Return to Normalcy

Good morning!
 
After overnight power work, about 12% of Dracut electricity customers are still without power. As a reminder, the Dracut Public Schools are OPEN today, November 1.
 
We had our first freeze this morning with at least a low of 31. That number could be lower once verification is all set and done.
 
With sunny skies this morning giving way to mostly cloudy conditions, expect a high around 52, along with a light south wind. Tonight will be cloudy with a chance of showers, the low will be around 49, and there will be a light south wind.
 
Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy and much warmer with a chance of showers, a high around 68, and a south wind of 5-10 mph. Tomorrow night will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 56, and a south wind around 5 mph.

Friday is the pick of the week with partial sunshine and a high around 71. Friday evening, for trick-or-treating, expect temperatures to be falling through the 60s during official trick-or-treating hours before a low around 39 for Saturday morning. Saturday is much clearer and cooler before a chance of showers on Sunday.

We lose a ton of daylight this month. By the time the end of the new month rolls around, our sunsets will be at 4:13 PM. In fact, our sunset this coming Sunday, November 5, will be at 4:32 PM, due to the time change. However, the time change does make the sunrises a bit earlier: from this Sunday until December 6, we will have sunsets before 7:00 AM again. Average highs and lows fall into the 40s and 20s this month.

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!
