Just in time: spring has sprung!

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Flowers are beginning to sprout up around campus and people are putting away their winter coats. It must be spring — just in time for SpringFest! Boston may have procrastinated on bringing around the season of rejuvenation this year, but now that it’s here, go out and enjoy the weather — when the April showers aren’t getting you down, of course. Today and tomorrow will bring some rain, but this weekend and next week are shaping up to be quite beautiful with sunny days and temperatures in the 70s. Time to banish the remaining piles of snow back to liquid form!

Late April is full of juxtapositions when it comes to the weather. On this day in 1988, Rochester, Minnesota, was blanketed by over a foot of snow. Meanwhile, the next year, 33 cities in the southeastern U.S. reported record high temperatures for the month of April. 

That's the weather. Good evening and have a pleasant tomorrow!
