A mild Thanksgiving

As seniors get ready to bid farewell to the MIT campus, they will be facing relatively calm weather for the rest of the week. With cold weather leaving us behind, we will see some moderately above-average temperature in Boston for the rest of this week. While you may be busy packing, take some time and appreciate the nice weather in the coming days. For those of you who will be going home, note that most of the South and the Midwest will see above-average temperature during the Thanksgiving break.

A bit of weather trivia for your Thanksgiving table talk: Hurricane Iota, which hit Nicaragua this week, is the latest category five hurricane to ever be recorded. The only other November Cat-5 ever seen occurred back in 1932. This November is also the first on record to experience two Cat-3+ storms. Overall, this Atlantic hurricane season has been a record setter, with the most named storms ever (30 so far), and the second-most hurricanes (13). Here’s to hoping Iota will be the last this year.
