Thursday 5/28/20

Good morning!

On the heels of our first 90-degree day of 2020 (high of 91 yesterday in Dracut), today will be a touch cooler, but just as humid and still quite hot. With mostly sunny skies early, followed by skies varying from partly cloudy to partly sunny, expect a high around 86 today, with a southwest wind of 5-15 mph.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with a chance of a few showers overnight after midnight. The low will be around 70, and wind will be southwest at 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow will feature a chance of showers and thunderstorms, primarily in the afternoon and evening. This chance is fairly limited in nature, however, and severe weather is unlikely; the high will be 84 tomorrow with partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies. The chance for showers and thunderstorms increases overnight Friday night and Saturday, with a low around 69 and a high around 84, with mostly cloudy conditions, but breaks of sunshine are possible at times Saturday. When compared to Friday daytime, Saturday has the higher chance of daytime showers and thunderstorms. A cold front passes  Saturday night, with the wind flipping to the northwest and leaving much drier and cooler conditions for Sunday.

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!
