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 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!
