Winter welcomes IAP

Boston’s weather started the new year with a consistent (and boring) pattern of chilly, dry days. Temperatures have been fairly cold, but we have not yet experienced a day with temperatures below the climatological average for this time of year. With the weekend ahead bringing warm rain, it is unlikely that temperatures will drop below average before next week. For those of you hoping for another big snowstorm like we saw at the end of last semester, the long wait continues. 

Elsewhere in the United States, there are lots of clear skies and warmer weather. If you’re somewhere in the west, like Arizona for instance, you should make time to head outdoors. Some possible outdoor activities include walking your dog or going for a leisurely run. No matter where you may be, make sure you are prepared for whatever the weather may bring your way!
