According to Weather.com, which is calling this the coldest air of the season, it’s 18 degrees Fahrenheit right now in Middletown and going down to 12 degrees later tonight (which will feel like 0 with the wind chill). On the bright side, it’s supposed to warm up to a tropic 25 on Friday.

If you’re arriving in Bradley tonight from a warm locale like Florida or Los Angeles, consider boarding another flight home. If you’re thinking of going outside, consider not doing that:

Upperclassmen might recall the first weeks of Spring Semester 2011, when Wesleyan was repeatedly hammered by wintry weather that also cancelled classes and collapsed Middletown roofs.
