MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia University is asking students to be prepared for frigid temperatures when they return to campus this week for the spring semester.

Residence halls open at 8 a.m. Monday and classes begin Wednesday.

Wednesday's outlook is warmer, with a high temperature of 29 degrees.
