Good morning!

With increasing clouds, and some showers or thunderstorms likely at times from late morning through mid-evening, expect a high around 80 today, with a wind turning out of the northeast at around 5 mph. While thunderstorms are obviously not guaranteed, most spots in central/eastern MA and southern NH will likely see something today.

The primary threat today is very heavy rain in thunderstorms, which may cause flash flooding. Storms have the potential to be strong to severe, with the primary threat for severe weather being strong to damaging wind gusts. Frequent lightning is also a threat as usual. Small hail is possible in some storms, though large hail is unlikely. The storm threat should wrap up toward the later evening hours with the bulk of the activity during the afternoon hours.

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!
