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 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!
