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 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!
