11-15-2018 AM Forecast

Good morning!

Expect a high around 32 today, with increasing clouds and a light wind.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect from 7 PM to 7 AM. (Update 2 PM: Upgraded to a WINTER STORM WARNING. Now in effect 4 PM to 7 AM. The rest of the forecast is not changed.) Snow starts during the mid evening hours of 5-9 PM, and will ramp up in intensity causing travel problems with heavy snow going through the overnight hours. 4-7″ of snow is expected before a switch to sleet and freezing rain during the middle of the overnight hours, most likely in the 12 to 2 AM timeframe. This combination will make for extremely hazardous travel conditions, before a switch to plain rain with temperatures rising above freezing by 8 AM or so. Expect school delays as roads will be extremely dangerous, even for a time after temperatures rise above freezing.

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!
