Good morning!
 
With partly cloudy skies, expect a high around 76 today, along with an east-northeast wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will be mostly clear and 55, along with a light east wind.
 
Tomorrow will feature generally increasing clouds, a high near 76, and an east wind of 5-10 mph. Humidity will rise once again Tuesday night as showers and thunderstorms are possible, especially late in the night, with a low near 65 and a southeast wind at around 5 mph.

That shower and thunderstorm chance continues Wednesday with a return to oppressive humidity and a high near 79, but Wednesday evening a cold front will deliver far less humid conditions – even lower dew points than what we have now. A taste of fall returns on Thursday with a high near 76, and while Friday is seasonably warm and near 83, humidity will remain low. Looking ahead, Saturday will be nearly identical to Friday, while Sunday looks to be a transition day in terms of humidity as a return to the heat and oppressive humidity takes place by next Monday. Still plenty of time for the timing of that last detail to change, though.

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!
