Lowell Area Forecast

UML Student Meteorologist: Matt Kaminsky
Merrimack Valley Regional
Good morning! After spectacular weather this weekend, a back
door cold front has ushered in a much cooler and moist airmass
overnight. A weak pocket of upper level energy will slowly drift to the
south of the region over the next 2 days, causing the periodic risk of
showers and periods of drizzle Today through Thursday. Weak flow at the
surface out of the northeast will continue to moisten the lower levels
of the atmosphere, helping to lock in a very shallow and stable
airmass. As a result, mostly cloudy conditions will prevail with
minimal temperature variation. By Thursday night, the combination of
the weak upper level disturbance exiting the region to the east, as
well as an approaching frontal system over the Great Lakes will cause
surface winds to turn to the south to southeast. After a cool start on
Friday morning, temperatures will rebound to the upper 60s under mostly
sunny skies. By Saturday morning, an approaching cold front will be
preceded by a period of moderate to heavy rain during the day Saturday.
An early look at Sunday and Monday reveals seasonable but cool
temperatures and dry conditions.
