Record Low Temperatures Set Overnight in State College

We hate to be “those guys” that want to talk about the weather — we trust you already know it’s too cold for human life outside — but weather records are cool, and several were set last night in State College and University Park.

According to the Campus Weather Service, it got down to -9 last night on campus, shattering the previous record of -1. Their thermograph was off the charts.

State College also broke a record for the first time since 2002, with the midnight temperature reaching -3.

The temperature is still hovering around zero degrees in State College, but we’ll be back up into the mid-40’s for students to return this weekend.
