1/18/20 AM Update

Good morning! Here’s the latest on this evening’s storm.

Timing: starting after sunset today and likely after 7 pm. Heaviest snowfall late this evening and into the overnight hours, wrapping up around sunrise tomorrow.

Amounts: widespread 4-8″ for much of the region, with most places including Dracut probably being right in the middle of the range. Higher amounts closer to 7″ or 8″ will likely be confined to higher elevations, with the amounts closer to 4″ likely in southern and far eastern sections of the zone. Lesser amounts of 2-4″ are expected from Boston and other coastal regions to the south, where rain or ice may mix in at the end of the storm.

Have a great day!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 19 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am going into 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, helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
