Many students at Montclair State University took advantage of the unusual weather today by sitting outside around campus and enjoying the warmth and the sun.
According to Weather.com, the high temperature of today was 74 degrees, which made students feel like it was spring, even though it is only February. Some people were staying active by playing frisbee in the quad, while others did homework outside rather than in their dorm or the library.
Freshman biology majors Briana Marte and Merilin Manashirov, pictured above, spent the morning sitting outside of the student center. They were casually going over notes on their computers, hanging out and peeling oranges.
“I’m going to go running outside when I get home,” said Marte, who was worried that the warm weather would be gone in a few days. She had an indoor party to attend tonight, so she wanted to make sure that she got to be outside as much as possible.
Manashirov was already done with class for the day, but she was waiting around on campus until Marte was done with class. “I’m going to Edgewater tonight to walk around since it’s so nice,” she said.
According to Weather.com, temperatures for tomorrow are expected to hit 63 degrees with a 60 percent chance of rain.
