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 20 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am in 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 on Dracut Weather (also on Twitter and Facebook), helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
