10-31-19

Good afternoon!

Expect a high around 71 today, with cloudy skies and rain at times; when it’s not raining steadily, expect lots of drizzle in between. The rainy theme continues overnight, with a low around 55. Winds will be south at 10-20 mph, turning southwest at 15-25 mph overnight; expect frequent gusty winds, with peak gusts of 45-60 mph. The National Weather Service has issued a HIGH WIND WARNING from 11 PM to 6 AM tonight; scattered power outages are possible along with downed tree limbs.

It’s not going to be a pretty night for people trick-or-treating, but it appears the worst of the wind will be a few hours after that wraps up.

Tomorrow will have a high around 57 during the day, with a chance of showers in the morning, followed by skies gradually clearing. Winds will be west at 10-20 mph, with gusts of 30-45 mph possible.

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!
