Good morning!
 
First off, groundhogs are not qualified to predict weather. (Though six more weeks of winter is generally a safe prediction at the start of February.)
 
With snow winding down, skies will gradually turn mostly sunny, and temperatures will fall through the 20s today, with a northwest wind at 5-15 mph and gusts up to 30 mph. Tonight will be clear with a low around 6, and a northwest wind at 5-10 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.
 
Tomorrow will be sunny and 27, with a west wind of 5-10 mph. Clouds will be on the increase tomorrow night, with a low of 23 and a southwest wind around 5 mph.

Beyond that, expect a high of 42 on Sunday with a mix of rain and snow. The low will be 29 on Sunday night into Monday morning as mixed precipitation changes to snow late overnight into the early morning hours. Any precipitation should be over before mid-morning Monday, and skies will turn mostly sunny with a high around 35. An impact to the Monday morning commute does seem likely. Things turn a bit cooler for Tuesday.

Have a great day!

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!
