Good morning!

With sunny skies, expect a high around 90 today, with a gusty west-southwest wind of 10-20 mph. Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low near 65, and a southwest wind of 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow will start sunny but will end with more clouds than not and a slight chance of thunderstorms late in the day, getting up to near 88 degrees with a west wind around 5 mph. Then, the chance for showers and thunderstorms increases during the early overnight hours, accompanied by a drastic wind shift to the east-northeast at 5-10 mph, as a backdoor front moves into the area. Tomorrow night will bottom out around 52 degrees.

Sunday is not going to be a great weather day, with cloudy skies, showers likely and a high around 58. Memorial Day will be at least okay, with a high around 71, a chance of showers (mainly in the morning) and mostly cloudy skies. All that said, if you’re going to have people over for a cookout, I’d recommend tonight or tomorrow, though you might be able to get away with Monday, because that shower chance is likely going to be done by mid to late morning – but that doesn’t eliminate the mostly cloudy skies.

Conditions become dry and mostly sunny again on Tuesday as the backdoor front will be gone by then; Tuesday will be near 81 degrees and mostly sunny.

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!
