Rainy Wednesday, Cool Thanksgiving

Good morning!

Rain will dominate this day before Thanksgiving, always seen as nightmarish by many; the rain could exacerbate travel problems. Today’s rain will roll in during the next few hours and continue up until right around when the evening rush hour usually begins. The high will be 49 today, and winds will start light, turning to the northwest at 5-10 mph late this morning with gusts up to 25 mph. Tonight, things gradually dry and clear out, with a low around 25. Winds will still be northwest at 5-10 mph, with gusts now up to 20 mph.

Thanksgiving itself will be mostly sunny with a high around 38, with a northwest wind at 5-10 mph, shifting to a more westerly wind later in the day. The high school football games in the morning will see temperatures mainly in the low to mid 30s; the Dracut Middies are taking on the Methuen Rangers tomorrow at 10 AM in Dracut (at the DHS football field). GO MIDDIES! For those who like the early Black Friday shopping, tomorrow night will be 27 and mostly clear with a light wind.


Black Friday is a pretty average day by late November standards, with the morning low and daytime high being right around average, before a warm Saturday and a cool Sunday.


Have a great day and safe travels!

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!
