Good morning!
 
With a mix of sun and clouds later today, expect a high around 50, along with a calm wind. Tonight will be mostly cloudy and 30, along with a calm wind.
 
I forgot to mention yesterday that it was the third anniversary of the Blizzard of 2015 (Tuesday, January 27, 2015), which dropped 33.1″ of snow on Dracut in that single storm. In tandem with having received 8.4″ of snowfall three days prior (Saturday January 24, 2015), a span of 41.5″ snow in four days kicked off our 2015 snow blitz in which we saw 101.7″ snow after January 23 en route to a 114.7″ season snowfall total. The Blizzard of 2015 was a storm of historic proportions in a winter of historic proportions.
 
As for our next chance of snow in the reality of 2018, a light snowfall of up to an inch or so is possible tomorrow evening, but the responsible system will probably be too far southeast for anything notable.
 
Have a great day!
-Nathan

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!
