Auburn University -
The National Weather Service has placed Auburn University under a WINTER STORM WATCH from Sunday afternoon through noon on Monday. The winter weather is expected to begin as snow by 3:00 p.m. on Sunday and transition to freezing rain after midnight Sunday. Freezing rain is expected to continue through around noon on Monday.
The Auburn area is currently forecast to receive 2 to 3 inches of snow on Sunday, followed by an accumulation of up to ¼" of ice as a result of the freezing rain. At this time, the forecast indicates that the temperature will not rise enough on Monday to melt any snow/ice accumulation.
No changes to normal university operations are planned at this time. Any changes will be announced via AU ALERT and the Auburn University home page at www.auburn.edu
We will maintain regular contact through the weekend with the Lee County Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service for updated information about the approaching storm system, and will issue updates as needed.
The safety of all students, employees, residents and visitors of Auburn University is our highest priority. Please keep informed about this winter weather event, be prepared for all types of winter precipitation, use caution while driving, and be prepared to implement your personal emergency plans for severe weather.
