    “It was gonna be 70 degrees and you know what they say, suns out dogs out,” sophomore Dorian Dudley said.

    Dudley was decked out in a tank top, shorts, and sandals, eager to enjoy the warm weather.  Little did he know, it would be 53 degrees when he walked in the door.

    Students enter the school at 7:30a.m., the frost biting their fingers. The cold greets everyone a good morning, just to disappear around lunchtime. When the bell rings for dismissal, everyone leaves to go home, and realizes it’s 40 degrees warmer than when they arrived. They tear off their coats and jackets, enjoying the warmth. Despite this nice weather, how should one prepare for the drastic temperature change throughout the day?

    On March 4, it reached 73 degrees. The low of the day was 53, making it difficult to choose an appropriate outfit.  Dressing for weather like this takes a lot more thought and planning than a regular day where the temperature maintains a steady range. A great way to prepare for the drastic weather change is dressing in layers such as jackets, so when temperatures rise one can shed layers. This makes it easy to stay warm in the morning, then stay cool when its warm. Wearing clothes too thick or not having enough coverage can lead to overheating or being too cold.

    Another option for diverse temperature days is wearing light clothing. Something in the middle like a three-quarter sleeve shirt will keep one warm enough in the morning and just cool enough in the afternoon. Things like thinner pants and shirts make it easier to regulate temperature.

    Listed below are five tips for dressing appropriately in the Spring:

    1. Bring an umbrella, in case it rains
    2. Wear shoes that can get wet
    3. Wear layers, in case the temperature rises or falls
    4. Wear long pants
    5. Avoid thick or bulky clothing
