1/1/20 AM Update

Good morning and happy 2020!!!! I’m continuing a fairly new tradition of making a full forecast right after midnight (it’s just before 1:15 AM as I type this), and for the new year and decade, I’m going to try and get back on track with how consistently I post. I’ve let that slip a lot in the last two years and that doesn’t reflect well. New year, new decade, new start!

With skies turning sunny today, expect a morning low of 26 and a daytime high of 39, with a west wind of 5-15 mph. Those winds continue into the overnight hours (though mainly on the lower end), with a low around 24 and mostly clear skies.

Thursday will be 45 and mostly sunny, with a west wind of around 5 mph. Expect increasing clouds Thursday night, with a low around 30 and a calm wind.

Rain is likely at times throughout Friday and Saturday (especially Friday and Friday night), with a high of 45 Friday, low of 39 Friday night, and a high of 49 Saturday. Saturday night will have a low of 32, with a chance for some of the last rain showers to end as a mix with snow overnight after the Pats game is over. Sunday will have a high around 37, with decreasing clouds.

Happy New Year!!

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!
