The National Weather Service is forecasting below normal temperatures, and a wind chill warning is in effect for much of southeast Ohio beginning at 5 p.m. tonight. Due to these forecasts, Ohio University leadership is closing all campuses and centers effective at 5 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 27.

Classes that are underway before the 5 o'clock hour are instructed to conclude by 5 p.m. All classes and activities after 5 p.m. are cancelled. Everyone is advised to stay indoors and avoid prolonged outdoor exposure.
