Transitions

As you transition from a summer of frolicking to a fall of problem sets or an orientation week of free food to a first week of sudden starvation, the weather seems to be the only thing somewhat constant this first week of the semester. September is considered to be the nicest month of the year, but it is not without its variety. Autumn’s chill can come barreling out of Canada and hurricanes can approach from the Atlantic, though none of that is in the cards the next few days.

Today and Saturday will feature a flashback to summer’s many weekends of sun and warmth. It will be a good opportunity to get out and escape some of your early semester obligations. On Sunday, a front will approach and stall overhead providing a good shot at some much needed moisture. An area of low pressure off the SE coast may wander up here next week. If it develops into a tropical storm, its name will be Gabrielle.
