News weather

A warm and sunny welcome to campus!

Welcome to MIT, first-years, and welcome back, upperclassmen! It looks as if the MIT weather machine is back up and running, with some beautiful weather for this weekend and the start of orientation. This past week was much cooler (and wetter) than the past few weeks of summer, but clear skies, sun, and mild warmth will be returning this weekend for the end of FPOP week and the beginning of REX. 

In other areas of the country, the weather is not quite as forgiving. Keep on the lookout for news about Hurricane Lane, now a Category 5 hurricane nearing Hawaii. There is some uncertainty in where the hurricane will hit, but it looks to be a powerful storm.

Today: Mostly sunny. High around 75 °F (24 °C). Northwest winds at 5–10 mph.
