Your THON 2022 Weekend Weather Forecast

After months of preparation, it’s officially THON Weekend.

THON is back in person, and although it might look a little different than years past, the 46-hour event is in full swing. So, if you’re heading across campus to get in on the action, you’ll likely need to think about the weather sooner or later.

While the atmosphere outside the Bryce Jordan Center will be dreary, students will be moving and grooving inside.

Friday

Friday will be a cold one with a high of 35 degrees, according to AccuWeather. Although it will be sunny, dancers and volunteers should prepare a jacket for the Human Tunnel.

If you’re rolling into the BJC after sunset, expect frigid temperatures in the mid-20s, but at least there’s still no indication of yesterday’s wind or rain. Bring a coat for that graveyard shift!

Saturday

Saturday will be cloudy and the high temperature will drop to 32 degrees. The wind will come back with a vengeance (and gusts up to 40 mph!), and some snow might make an appearance. We suggest layers!

Once the sun sets, precipitation will vanish, but the temperature will drop to 16 degrees. Maybe the cold will wake you up before the last day of THON?

Sunday

On the final day of THON, the sun comes back out, and participants and spectators will exit the BJC and be greeted by a high of 40 degrees. Celebrate the end of the 46 hours in the warm air, but make sure to get home before it drops down to 26 degrees.
