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 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!
