12-09-2017 Update #1

Good morning!
Not much has changed – timing and everything still on track: picking up late morning, steady snow through the rest of the day and much of the night. I just decided to combine the 3-6 and 6-8 inch zones and tweak it into a big 4-8 inch zone since some people in the northern half of the 6-8 might end up with 5 or so. Still, right around 6″ is likely for Dracut. North wind throughout.
Today itself will feature a high of 31 and tonight will get down to 28. After that, tomorrow has a chance of morning snow showers, with partly sunny skies and a high of 37. West wind around 5-10 mph. Tomorrow night will be mostly clear and 19 with a calm wind.
After that, Monday is dry and mostly sunny, around 33. A snow event is looking likely on Tuesday morning that could drop a few inches of snow – and, more importantly, be a poorly timed travel nuisance. After that, we enter the icebox with highs around 20 for the rest of next week – and possibly not breaking 20 at times, with lows in the single digits starting Wednesday night.
Have a great day and stay safe!

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!
