Good morning!

With cloudy skies and showers this afternoon, expect a high around 59 today, and a south wind around 5 mph this afternoon. Tonight, expect decreasing clouds, a low around 43, and a west wind of 5-10 mph, with gusts over 25 mph possible at times.

Tomorrow will be mostly sunny and 55, with a west wind at around 10 mph. Gusts to 25 mph are possible early. Tomorrow night will be 40 and mostly clear, along with a light west wind.

Going into Wednesday, it will be mostly sunny and 56. There will be a frontal passage on Wednesday afternoon, but conditions will probably stay dry that afternoon nonetheless. After the front, things turn clear and quite cold: Wednesday night could very well be our first freeze of the year, but it will probably be a close call – a low around 32 and clear.

Thursday will be very cold during the day, with sunny skies but a high around 42 – a full 20 degrees below average! Thursday night will be clear and 28 – if we don’t get below freezing Wednesday night, we will almost certainly do so Thursday night. Friday will be a bit warmer, with sunny skies and a high around 56.

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!
