Good morning!

We encountered a very rare May snowfall this morning. As of this writing (just after 6 am) steady flurries are falling, although they will not accumulate. With snow showers changing to rain showers before ending by mid-morning, then a chance of scattered rain showers through the rest of the day, expect a high around 45, with otherwise cloudy skies and a west wind of 5-15 mph, increasing to 15-30 mph by late morning, with peak gusts of over 50 mph possible. This could cause minor damage in spots, with a wind advisory in effect. As a best case scenario, today will be extremely cold, raw, and bitter for this time of year.

Tonight will then feature the potential for a sub-freezing temperature! With decreasing clouds, expect a low around 31, with a west wind 10-20 mph and gusts over 25 mph possible.

For tomorrow, expect mostly sunny skies, with a high around 55, and a west wind at 10-20 mph, with gusts over 30 mph possible. Beyond that, we may break into the low 60s Monday, before two more days in the 50s followed by the possibility of a real improvement in the weather toward Thursday and Friday.

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!
