Good morning!

With increasing clouds, expect a high around 85 today, and a west wind of 5-10 mph. Showers and thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and more likely this evening, with a few severe thunderstorms possible; damaging winds, heavy rain and lightning are all in the cards. The low will be 70 tonight, with a chance of continuing showers and storms.

Have a great day!

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!

  1. Hey Nathan can you do me a favor and see what the weather next week in Kure Beach North Carolina looks like it’s telling me thunder storms. Suppose to be going there but don’t want to go if the weather is gonna be bad. Thanks for any help buddy!!!


    1. Ronnie- yeah there’s a chance of storms each day down there. Not exactly a washout at any point, though showers and storms could be more frequent toward the end of next week. Low to mid 80s throughout during the daytime. Hope all is well with you guys!
