A shorts and T-shirt afternoon

On an afternoon in which a balmy 69 degrees broke the all-time Boston temperature record for the last day of November, area student-athletes were dressed as if it were summer at a local school.

At the Rivers School in Weston, students dressed in shorts and T-shirts ran through conditioning drills and kicked around soccer balls on the school's recently-installed synthetic turf field.

The record-high temperature, established at 1:43 p.m., broke the previous mark of 68 degrees set in 1881.

There won't be any balmy breezes on Sunday, though. The forecasters say it may snow.
