Below is an excerpt from the Raleigh National Weather Service Forecaster Discussion which outlines the threat…

Confidence continues to grow with respect to the severe weather potential Friday afternoon and evening. The latest update from the Storm Prediction Center has upgraded the risk for all of central North Carolina into a Moderate Risk (4 of 5) for severe weather today, the first of it`s kind in our forecast area in over three years (Last time: February 24th, 2016). Primary threats with today`s setup are widespread damaging winds, hail, tornadoes (possibly long-track tornadoes), and localized Flash Flooding. This severe setup has the potential to be a very dangerous situation, with several severe ingredients rarely seen across the eastern seaboard coming together over portions over central North Carolina. NOW IS THE TIME TO FINALIZE EMERGENCY PLANS, REPLENISH YOUR EMERGENCY SUPPLIES IN YOUR SAFE PLACE, AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A RELIABLE WAY TO RECEIVE WATCH/WARNING INFORMATION. Once you are completely prepared, check on your nearby family members and neighbors to ensure they are also prepared and aware.

Dear UNCG Community,

After experiencing some freezing rain across the UNCG region this morning, conditions have generally improved as temperatures have risen, and impacts to our campus and community have been relatively limited. However, freezing temperatures overnight could still create difficult travel conditions, especially early in the morning. Black ice and slick areas can be a hazard. Please pay close attention to all relevant local weather and road condition information when making any travel plans.

Based on current conditions, this is our last communication concerning this weather event. UNCG will operate as normal and classes will begin tomorrow (Monday). We recognize your local conditions may vary, so we ask employees to be in contact with their supervisors and students with their faculty if there are any specific issues.

Thank you.
