The following message was sent to the campus community from the university's Emergency Management Team - Ed.
Dear William & Mary community –
The National Weather Service is forecasting a wintry mix of precipitation for the Williamsburg area overnight into Sunday. The mix could include up to two inches of snow and some ice. Sidewalks and steps, especially, might be slippery in the morning. Please use caution if you have to drive and/or are out walking on campus.
For those on campus, facilities management personnel are preparing and pre-treating areas today and will be clearing and/or de-icing in the morning as necessary. Please use the cleared and treated pathways. If you see an area that is a safety concern please contact WMPD dispatch at 757.221.4596.
Temperatures are predicted to rise midday tomorrow turning any additional precipitation to rain. We don’t expect any schedule changes. If we need to make additional updates, they will continue to be communicated through the university's mass notification system. Local media, as well as the W&M News Facebook and Twitter pages - http://www.facebook.com/wmnews and http://www.twitter.com/WMNews - will also be sources for updates.
If you need local bus transit please call the Williamsburg Area Transit Authority's (WATA) weather line at 757-220-5493 and press option 1, or visit the WATA website for the latest scheduling information.
Stay safe,Ginger Ambler, EMT Co-Chair
