Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies, and a slight chance of an afternoon shower, expect a high around 60 today, along with a southwest wind at 10-15 mph, with gusts up to 35 mph. Tonight will be mostly clear, along with a low around 31, and a west wind at 10-15 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph.

Tomorrow will be sunny and only 43 degrees, along with a northwest wind at 10-20 mph with gusts up to 45 mph possible! That’ll be a chilly wake up call in the morning for sure with the strong winds. The winds should subside by the evening on Thursday, giving way to a clear and cold Thursday night – low around 27, northwest wind around 5 mph. If the strong winds end up keeping us just above the 32 degree freezing night tonight, then we will definitely have our first freeze tomorrow night. Regardless, a hard freeze can be expected going into Thursday night.

Friday will be much warmer than Thursday during the day, however, with a high around 55 with sunny skies. Friday night will see increasing clouds and a low of 44, giving way to a chance of showers on Saturday and a high also around 55. Saturday night will feature decreasing clouds and a low of 38 before skies turn sunny on Sunday, but with a high only around 46.

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!
