Good morning from western Maine, and happy Fourth of July!

With skies turning mostly sunny, expect a high around 82 today for the Dracut area, with a mainly light and variable wind. Tonight will turn partly cloudy, with a low around 63, and a light south wind. Sunday will be partly cloudy and 87, with a southwest wind around 5 mph. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, some of which could be strong or even severe with strong wind gusts the primary severe weather hazard, in addition to heavy rain and lightning. Skies clear out Sunday night, with a low around 62, and a calm wind.

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!
