8-4-2018 Morning Forecast

[9:40 AM 8-4-2018]
Good morning!
I go to make this post. As I do so, a storm along the Mass/CT border receives a Tornado Warning that includes a lot of the towns south of Worcester. That is indicative of today’s weather hazards: cloudy, showers and thunderstorms likely at numerous times today from now into the early evening hours. Some could be strong to severe with damaging winds and an isolated tornado possible, but by far the main hazard today will be heavy rain with some flooding possible. The high will be around 80, with a south wind otherwise at 5-10 mph.
I’ll have updates on my Facebook and on Twitter @DracutWeather as needed.

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!
