Thursday 5/27/21 Evening

Good evening!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the forecast for Memorial Day weekend has gone from bad to much, much worse. I thought what I had to write yesterday was garbage. This is next-level garbage.

Expect a morning low of 49 and a daytime high of 64 for Friday, with a generally calm wind during the day, and mostly cloudy skies. There will be an increasing chance of rain in the afternoon as a low pressure system approaches the area. Rain is now expected throughout Friday night and most of Saturday morning, before gradually giving way to a chance of showers Saturday afternoon. Expect a night low of 43 Friday night and a daytime high of just 51 on Saturday, with cloudy skies and a northeast wind of 5-15 mph.

Saturday night and Sunday will be a bit better, but not much: a low of 43 and a high around 53, with mostly cloudy skies throughout, along with a chance of showers developing again Sunday evening and a continued northeast wind. Rain is possible Sunday night, with a low around 46 and mostly cloudy skies.

Some showers may remain Monday morning, but the afternoon may actually be decent for Memorial Day proper, with a high around 68 projected along with mostly cloudy skies. There is a wider range in temperature possibilities for Monday: a third straight day in the 50s is not fully out of the question, but we also could break into the 70s. At this time, upper 60s to near 70 is the most probable scenario for Monday. Conditions finally stabilize by Monday night and Tuesday, with decreasing clouds and a low of 49 Monday night giving way to mostly sunny skies for Tuesday, with a high around 78. It’s almost like this pattern is planned to provide as crappy a long weekend as possible. Guess we’ll all have to roll with the punches. Again, if any of this changes significantly, I’ll update the forecast.

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!
