Graduation Weather

Congratulations to all the graduates!

As we sit in Killian Court to receive our 2000-plus diplomas, we will experience temperatures of approximately 75°F. It will be cooler in the early hours of the ceremony, with a cap later in the day of about 77°F. There will be a few clouds gowning the sky, hopefully shielding us from the intense sunlight that is usually awarded to Killian Court.

Elsewhere, it looks like the tropics have taken a break to celebrate our graduation with us. No tropical storm development is expected over the next few days.

Enjoy your day, but watch out for a few showers as your night of celebration makes its procession towards morning. For those of you sticking around after graduation, expect next week to be sunny and warm, with high temperatures in the 70's °F.
