Weather: Heat Today, Gone TomorrowBy Mary Obelnicki and Annie S. Choi
Today we take a vacation from the heat wave as a cold front approaches from the west, leaving us with drier, cooler air. Expect sunny and warm weather, comfortable for actually leaving the confines of air-conditioned buildings and participating in outdoor activities. Tonight will also be cooler, allowing us to sleep in our own beds, instead of the couches of the 55°F (13°C) Stratton Student Center.
Pleasant temperatures will continue throughout the week. Thursday welcomes arctic temperatures in the lower to middle 80s and a slight chance of rain. Thursday evening is forecasted to bring temperatures in the lower to middle 60s -- you may want to bust out those down blankets.
Friday’s weather will continue the cooling trend, with highs in the lower to middle 80s and fair conditions at night.
Today: Breezy with clear skies and lower humidity. High of 87°F (31°C).
