Friday 6.4.21

Good morning!

With mostly cloudy skies, expect a high around 88 today, with a southwest wind of 5-10 mph. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon; the latest guidance has honed in on a line of showers and storms forming this afternoon. Some showers may form ahead of the line, but guidance is in agreement on the back end of the storms exiting the Dracut area by 6 pm. Outdoor graduations look safe as a result; however, you may want to bring a towel, so your rear end doesn’t get soaked if the seats are wet. We will be near the northern edge of the line, so it’s not impossible that we miss the rain entirely. In any case, it will be a nice night for graduations with decreasing clouds, as well as temperatures falling from the mid 70s to the upper 60s. Congrats to the Class of 2021!

Expect decreasing clouds to continue overnight, with a low around 61, and a southwest wind around 5 mph. Saturday is the first day of an extended stretch of heat, with a high around 88, and a southwest wind of 5-15 mph. Saturday night will be mostly clear and 69, with a west-southwest wind of 5-10 mph.

Sunday will crank up the heat further, with sunny skies and a high around 93. Sunday night will be clear and 71. Expect a high around 95 Monday with sunny skies, and a low of 72 Monday night with mostly clear skies. Tuesday will probably be the last day of the big heat, with a high around 97 as well as mostly sunny skies. Wednesday will likely be in the 80s, and the rest of the week will likely be in the 70s. Wednesday also looks like the next potential chance of any rain after today.

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!
