The conditional clause of this loop is simply "temperatures.length", which will be considered true because it is not zero. This causes the loop to run continuously.

Normally the conditional clause would contain a test that determines when the loop should continue. It's commonly done by comparing something to the loop variable, so you probably intended to write "i < temperatures.length".

check your exit clause. currently it will always evaluate to true, and as a result it is creating an infinite loop.
