THON_line

With THON taking place every year in the middle of February, the weather is usually an issue with the long line that generally forms outside of the BJC. Last year, frigid temperatures caused numerous people in line to suffer from hypothermia. This year, we decided to give prospective spectators waiting in line to get into the BJC the weather forecast for the weekend and let me say, the weather is looking much better this year. Without further ado, here is your forecast for THON Weekend.
