4/29/20

Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies, expect a high around 59 today, with an east wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will see skies turning cloudy fast, with a low around 41, and a light southeast wind.

Tomorrow will be cloudy, with a high around 50 and a chance of showers, primarily around midday. The wind will be southeast at 5-10 mph. Tomorrow night will feature similar wind conditions, cloudy skies, a low around 46, and rain becoming likely late in the overnight hours.

Going forward, Friday will be a pretty crappy weather day, but it’ll still be far from the worst weather day we’ve had in recent weeks. Expect rain throughout most of the day, and perhaps heavy rain and wind gusts over 20 mph at times; rain amounts may be over a half inch. The high will be around 59, which is around 5 degrees below normal, but 5 degrees below normal seems like a win at this point. Friday night will have a low around 48 with some showers possible.

With the Friday system still nearby, some showers are possible Saturday as well, with a high around 62, but at least some breaks of sunshine are possible amid mostly cloudy conditions. Finally, skies clear out Saturday night with a low around 47, giving way to what is shaping up to be the nicest weather day in a while on Sunday: sunny skies, with a high around 72.

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!
