My first forecast as a high school graduate and thus officially now a UMass Lowell meteorology student! It’s an early one for a Saturday, because I woke up quite early as a result of allergies.
 
With mostly cloudy skies, and a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms, expect a high around 81 today, with a light southwest wind, turning northeast and increasing to 5-10 mph during the day. Tonight will feature clearing skies, a low around 50, and a northeast wind near 5 mph.
 
Tomorrow will be the pick of the entire forecast period in my opinion, with a high around 66, mostly sunny skies, and an east wind of 5-10 mph. It’s definitely on the cool side, but it will be the only dry day in the forecast period, and is the second warmest day in the next five behind today – but today will be very humid for the first half of the day before a decrease in the afternoon, while tomorrow will not be humid at all. Tomorrow night will be mostly clear and fairly cool for early June, with a low around 43, and a light east wind.

The rest of the five day forecast period is quite cool, with a chance of showers daily Monday through Wednesday. Monday probably won’t get even to the mid 50s for the daytime high; Tuesday and Wednesday will fare better with highs on either side of 60, but that is still quite cool considering our average high of 75. Morning lows will be in the mid 40s. After Wednesday, a rebound is likely with temperatures probably returning to near seasonable conditions.

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!
