News weather

Sunny weather greets the incoming freshmen!

As they say, Boston has two seasons: August and winter. As freshmen arrive on campus for pre-orientation, the hot, humid weather is greeting our early returners with a heat wave mixed with occasional showers. Hopefully, everyone is remembering to stay cool and hydrated with lots of ice cream, iced water, and popsicles!

Meanwhile, heat advisories are in place for much of the southern plains and northeast, and critical fire weather threats continue to be in place for the central Rockies and CA. As we live through this historic summer, I urge you to check in with your friends and family for their safety, and especially your parents! Remember to call home to check in, even as we try to get (re)acquainted with the firehose of campus life.
