Sunday 6/28/20: PM Severe Thunderstorms Possible

Good morning!

With increasing clouds this afternoon, along with a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, expect a high around 87 today, with a southwest wind around 5 mph. Some thunderstorms may be strong to severe, with strong to damaging wind gusts the primary severe threat. Heavy rain and lightning are also expected, and hail is possible in some storms. The best chance for storms is after 2 pm (though a stray shower is possible before that), with the timeline for severe weather potential running through about 9 pm. Keep an eye to the sky and stay tuned for updated information and possible severe weather warnings this afternoon and evening.

Additional showers and thunderstorms are possible overnight, although severe weather is unlikely to continue too far after sunset. The low will be around 64 tonight.

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!
