Saturday 6/20/20 – Afternoon Update

Good afternoon from Plymouth, Massachusetts!

The forecast from this morning covering this afternoon is on track to verify with a high of about 93 or 94 degrees still expected (Dracut has reached 92 degrees thus far, as of 2 pm) along with generally sunny skies. (I’m a few miles inland in Plymouth so it’s only a few degrees cooler here, in the upper 80s, with a few more clouds.)

This five day forecast runs from tonight through Thursday. With mostly clear skies, expect a low around 69 tonight, with a southwest wind around 5 mph. Sunday will be sunny and 92, and Sunday night will be mostly clear and 67, with a southwest wind around 5 mph throughout. Monday will be mostly sunny and 91, with a southwest wind around 5 mph.

Going forward, Monday night will be 67 and mostly clear. Tuesday will be mostly sunny and 92, and Tuesday night will be partly cloudy and 71. The thunderstorm chance will be on the increase Wednesday and Thursday, with a high around 92 Wednesday, a low around 70 Wednesday night, and a high around 88 Thursday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies at times. Sunday through Tuesday currently look dry, but it’s not impossible that a low shower or thunderstorm chance could enter the picture Monday or Tuesday as things evolve.

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!
