Boston Weather: 32.0°F | Fair

Weather: Muggy Rush

By Annie Choi

Photo Editor -- As the weekend begins we can expect uncomfortable conditions. Humid and sticky through the weekend, there will be about a 30 percent chance of showers although the hopes and prayers of Interfraternity Council members make rain distinctly less likely at least in the Killian Court area. Today brings morning clouds and highs in the low 90’s.

Muggy conditions may be alleviated with light 10-20 m.p.h, winds, though staying in a climate controlled environment is much more appealing. Such a strategy, however, could limit one’s rushing possibilities to, well, New House. We might as well stay in our air conditioned news room or those 15-passenger vans that most living groups will be using to cruise Memorial Drive today. Tonight will be clear and cooler, with balmy temperatures in the low to mid 60’s. The weather will be less humid and comfortable for sleeping if the hectic orientation schedule grants you that opportunity.

Sunday will be partly cloudy, but slightly muggy, with a high of 81° that will cool down to the low 60’s by dinnertime. The weather will be better than today, though we are far from blue skies and picture perfect conditions. All we can do is imagine we are lounging on a beach in Cancun instead of the steps of the Stratton Student Center.

Today: Morning clouds, high near 91° F (33°C).

Tonight: Clear and cool. Low 66°F (18°C).

Sunday: Partly cloudy, muggy, high near 81° (25°C).
