5/1/20: Significant Improvement in Weekend Weather

Good morning!

With additional showers possible today but the bulk of the rain over, expect a high around 59 today, with a south wind at 5-10 mph. Given the earlier timing of the system’s departure, the overall weekend forecast has improved significantly since Wednesday; tonight will have decreasing clouds, a low around 46, and a calm wind.

Tomorrow now looks to be mostly sunny, with a high around 68, and a northwest wind of 10-15 mph and gusts over 20 mph possible. Saturday night will be partly cloudy and 49, with a light northwest wind. Sunday looks to be a little cloudier than first forecast, but still with at least partly sunny skies and a high around 72. Given the improvement in Saturday’s forecast I still think the overall weekend forecast has improved, compared to the original possibility of showers on Saturday from earlier this week.

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!
