Going into the rest of the week, conditions turn mainly sunny but very cold. Wednesday will actually be a little warmer than tomorrow, with a high around 36, but things go downhill from there. Expect a low around 8 on Wednesday night, with sub-zero wind chills for Thanksgiving morning. It will be a very cold Thanksgiving, with a high around 19, and even after the coldest wind chills end late in the morning, wind chills in the single digits will continue with a strong northwest wind. The wind will calm for Thursday night, with a low around 6. Friday will be a bit warmer, with a high around 25, but much less windy.

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!
