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 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!
