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 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!
