Good morning!

With sunny skies, expect a high around 88 today, along with a northwest wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will be clear and 60, along with a light west wind.

Tomorrow will be sunny and hot again, with a high around 91, and a light south wind. Tomorrow night will be muggy and warm with a low around 70, along with mostly clear skies and a light southeast wind.

Monday will feature partly cloudy skies, a high around 100, and a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms. That’s right – my first ever triple digit high temperature forecast. Monday’s heat could be dangerous, so avoid constant exposure to the heat and don’t overwork yourself. We have not hit 100 degrees since July of 2011, so it will be interesting to see if we actually make it to 100 on Monday; that is the going forecast right now. A somewhat gusty southwest wind may take the edge off the heat a little, but no doubt it will still be dangerous if not handled properly – whether we actually touch triple digits or not.

Monday night will not get out of the 70s, before a mostly cloudy Tuesday featuring a chance of showers and thunderstorms and a much more reasonable high around 84. The chance of precipitation is best in the morning, and humidity will decrease through the day on Tuesday. Tuesday night will be mostly clear and 61, and Wednesday will be mostly sunny and 88.

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!
