Good morning!

With partly sunny skies today, and a chance of some afternoon thunderstorms – some of which could be strong to severe – expect a high around 84 today, with a southwest wind at 5-15 mph, perhaps gusting to over 30 mph at times. Even higher gusts are possible in any especially strong storms, along with heavy rain, potentially frequent lightning, and perhaps some small hail.

The storm threat will wane by mid-evening, giving way to clearing skies, a low around 54, and a northwest wind at 5-10 mph for tonight. Thursday will be mainly sunny and 75, with a north wind at 5-10 mph. Thursday night will be partly cloudy and 50, with a light east wind.

Friday and Saturday will feature cooler and cloudier conditions – 70 on Friday, with partly cloudy skies; 52 on Friday night, with mostly cloudy skies and a chance of showers; and 69 on Saturday, with mostly cloudy skies and a chance of morning showers – as the outer edge of what is now Hurricane Dorian passes by. The storm center will pass southeast of Nantucket early Saturday morning, and while southeastern Massachusetts could see gusty winds and heavy rain, we probably won’t see any more than some showers – if even that – from the system.

Skies clear out Saturday night with a low near 53, and Sunday will be a bit warmer – mostly sunny and 75.

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!
