Good afternoon! Sorry for the delay in posting.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon into tonight, with damaging winds, large hail, heavy rain and lightning all possible. There is a low chance of an isolated tornado somewhere in New England as well. The high will be near 84 degrees, with a southeast wind of 5-10 mph; the severe storm chance will extend into the early overnight.

Additional showers and storms are possible tomorrow, though they will probably not be severe. Expect a low near 70 and a south wind around 5 mph tonight and a high near 80 tomorrow, with a southwest wind of 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow night will feature a wind shift to the north, with showers ending early, followed by clearing skies and a low around 61. The north wind will be near 5 mph.

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!
