Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies today, expect a high around 84, with a south wind of 5-10 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph possible, primarily in the afternoon and evening. Skies turn partly cloudy tonight, with a low around 67, and a south wind of 5-10 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph possible early. A brief shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out overnight with humidity increasing quite a bit overnight, but most locations will stay dry.

Tomorrow will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy, with a high around 87, and a southwest wind of 5-10 mph with gusts to 25 mph (except possibly higher in thunderstorms). Showers and thunderstorms are possible, mainly in the afternoon and evening; a few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible. Damaging wind gusts, heavy rainfall and frequent lightning are the main hazards, with hail also possible; the highest risk for severe weather is to our north, however.

Going forward, highs in the upper 80s to near 90 will remain in place for Thursday and Friday before a low pressure system approaches the region Friday night. The National Hurricane Center is indicating that this low pressure system could potentially develop into a tropical depression or a tropical storm; regardless of whether the low organizes into a tropical system (and if so, whether it stays tropical into our area), at least some rain is likely Friday night into Saturday, with the chance increasing for a widespread soaking rainfall, which could lead to some flooding. Some gusty winds can’t be ruled out either, depending on the track of the low. There’s still a few days to go before this system to see how things play out, so stay tuned.

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!
