Good morning!

With decreasing clouds, expect a high around 49 today, with a light south wind; tonight will be partly cloudy and 30, with a south wind around 5 mph. Tomorrow will feature mostly cloudy skies and a chance of afternoon rain, but much warmer conditions will prevail with a high around 57 and a south wind around 5 mph. Tomorrow night will be mostly cloudy with a chance of rain early, with a low around 48 and a south wind of 5-10 mph.

Friday will be quite warm with a high around 70 and partly cloudy skies; Friday night will be partly cloudy and 50. Saturday will be a tricky forecast. Right now I will go with a high around 68, with a chance of afternoon showers and falling temperatures associated with a backdoor cold front. The wild card will be where the front sets up and how quickly it moves south: if it sets up even slightly further north and/or moves slower than expected currently, we could make a run at 80 degrees on Saturday, but if it sets up further south and/or moves faster than forecast, we could peak at only the upper 50s. So put an asterisk on Saturday’s daytime forecast. Regardless, Saturday night will be cloudy with a chance of showers and a low of 31. Sunday will be very cold with a high of 36, along with a chance of rain. Beyond that, Sunday night and Monday will feature a more substantial chance of rain.

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!
