Cold Veterans Day

Good morning!

First off, I want to express my sincere thanks to all those who have served, are serving, and will serve in the military on this Veterans Day. Thanks to your bravery in serving our country, we all have the freedom to go about our lives, and for that we will always thank you. Remember, freedom isn’t free.

Moving on, we had our coldest morning of the season thus far, with a low of 18 degrees this morning. This was still several degrees warmer than expected by virtually all forecasters (including myself) due to persistent winds and a few clouds. Nonetheless, it is our coldest start since a low of 14 degrees on March 23. Today will feature sunny skies and a high around 35, along with a northwest wind of 5-10 mph.

Tonight will be mostly clear with a low of 15, along with a calm wind. Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy with a high of 41, along with a calm wind. And tomorrow night will be mostly cloudy and 29, again with a calm wind.


The rest of the 5 day forecast period has highs in the mid 40s and lows in the mid to upper 20s. Some rain and snow showers are possible Monday morning, with additional rain showers possible Monday afternoon. However, there is significant uncertainty on the timing of any showers – if any occur at all. Accumulating snow is unlikely for this event.


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!
