After a one-day suspension because of bitterly cold weather, classes on the U-M Ann Arbor campus will resume Wednesday.
In an all-campus email message Tuesday afternoon, Provost Martha E. Pollack and Dr. Robert A. Winfield, the university's chief health officer, say classes will resume because of improving weather conditions.
"Although weather conditions are expected to improve, temperatures continue to be low, particularly Tuesday evening," the message says. "Please stay well prepared for the cold and take precautions. Wear layered clothing, protect skin from exposure and avoid exertion when outside in extreme cold."
The UM-Dearborn and UM-Flint campuses also will reopen Wednesday.
The cancellation of classes Tuesday was believed to be the first time classes have been suspended because of the weather since January 1978.
