Good morning! Welcome to September!

With partly cloudy skies today, expect a high around 77, with a southeast wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will be mostly cloudy and 59, with a southeast wind around 5 mph. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and 75, with a chance of showers, and a southeast wind of 5-10 mph. I would expect any showers to be intermittent, with most of the day being dry. Wednesday night will be mostly cloudy and 67, with a south wind around 5 mph.

Just a quick tidbit regarding the month of September and daylight – if you thought August was bad in terms of the sunset time being earlier, just wait. Today’s sunset is 7:18 pm; on September 30, the sunset time is 6:27 pm….just in time for the start end of the NHL season playoffs. Yes, I will still watch hockey despite the Bruins getting knocked out last night. In terms of overall daylight, we lose over 80 minutes this month.

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!
