The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 7 PM tonight until noon Wednesday. A wintry mix of snow, sleet, and rain is expected for our area. The wintry mix is projected to change to freezing rain after midnight with light ice accumulations of less than 1/10 of an inch in our area. Hazardous travel conditions may be seen especially on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued starting at midnight tonight (Tuesday, 1/22) through 10 AM Wednesday morning. There is the potential for patchy light freezing rain and a light glaze of ice may form impacting the morning commute. Elevated surfaces (bridges, sidewalks, etc.) will be the most impacted. Please allow plenty of commute time in the morning and watch your step. By 9 AM Wednesday temperatures will get above freezing and begin to melt any ice that formed overnight.

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.

Dear UNCG Community,

As anticipated, some winter weather is currently moving through the UNCG area. In Greensboro, we anticipate freezing rain may continue through the morning. Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing later today as the rain moves through.
This sort of weather can create challenging travel conditions, power outages, and other issues. Please be careful when traveling on the roads and across campus. Black ice and slick areas can be a hazard. Please also pay close attention to all relevant local weather and road condition information when making any travel plans.

Based on conditions on campus at this time, we are not canceling or postponing any events or activities, and all services will operate as normal. We recognize your local conditions may vary, so we ask employees to be in contact with their supervisors if there are any specific issues. We will communicate again by  5:00 p.m. today (Sunday) with any updates related to Monday classes and operations. Please continue to check your email and monitor our social channels and Spartan Alerts for all the latest updates.

Thank you.

Dear UNCG Community,

We continue to receive updates on a winter weather event that is likely to have some impact on the Triad and other areas of North Carolina this weekend.  The UNCG area is currently under a winter storm warning.  The latest forecasts indicate that snow and freezing rain may begin impacting our area at around 10:00 p.m. on Saturday and that precipitation could continue through Sunday.  We do not expect significant snowfall, but ice is the primary concern.  This sort of weather can create hazardous travel conditions, power outages, and other issues.

We urge everyone in the UNCG community — students, faculty, and staff — to exercise extreme caution when traveling and make any necessary plans and preparations now in advance of adverse weather hitting our area.  Please be careful when moving around campus and watch for slick spots and ice as weather changes.  Please also pay close attention to all relevant local weather and road condition information when making your plans.

At this time, we are not canceling or postponing any events or activities, but we will make additional decisions Sunday morning based on conditions.  We will provide another update by around 7:00 a.m. on Sunday.  Please continue to check your email and monitor our social channels and Spartan Alerts for all the latest updates.

Thank you.

Weather Alert: Potential Winter Weather

Dear UNCG Community,

We are currently monitoring a potential winter weather event that could bring freezing rain and/or snow to our region this weekend.  Most forecasts currently indicate this weather is likely to reach Greensboro on Sunday, but there is still significant uncertainty about the details (timing, type, and magnitude), as is often the case with winter weather in North Carolina.

This sort of weather, however, could make travel difficult, especially on Sunday and possibly into Monday.  We know many students are now making plans to return to campus and to our community in preparation for the upcoming semester.  We encourage you to strongly consider returning before Sunday to minimize any weather-related travel complications.  Please also pay close attention to all relevant local weather and road condition information when making your plans.

All campus facilities and services are open and operational as planned, including dining, health services, and other functions.  At this time, we are not canceling or postponing any events or activities.  We will monitor the situation closely, however, and communicate updates as needed.  We will provide an update by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday evening should the weather impact the beginning of classes and other campus operations on Monday.

Please continue to check your email and monitor our social channels and Spartan Alerts for all the latest updates.

Thank you.

The previous line of severe wind has passed. We ask that you avoid being outdoors as much as possible for the rest of the evening as there is still a threat of severe winds. Please monitor the local forecast and exercise caution when traveling.

Tropical Storm Michael

Updated 10/11/2018 @ 9 AM

As Tropical Storm Michael continues to move inland, UNC Greensboro and our Emergency Management Team have been in consultation with state and local officials while closely monitoring potential weather impacts here in the Triad. As of this morning, the National Weather Service has placed much of our region, including Guilford County, under a Tropical Storm Warning. This means we can expect heavy rains during the day, with potentially strong winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour through tonight. These conditions could result in power outages and other impacts.  

Based on these conditions, UNCG has elected to cancel classes at 2:00 pm. We will also cancel all events planned for this afternoon and this evening. Additionally, the University will operate at Condition 1 for employees beginning at 2:00 pm. Employees should use their discretion in making decisions about travel and work activities. Campus services, including dining facilities, will remain open this evening subject to any safety implications related to weather conditions.  

We are taking precautions on our campus by removing or securing loose items (umbrellas, tents, etc.). Please exercise caution when traveling or moving across campus. This is still expected to be a relatively fast-moving storm, and should exit our area by late evening.  

UNCG will return to full normal operations and all classes, activities and events will continue as planned beginning on Friday morning.The safety of the university community is of paramount importance. Please continue to monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel. We will continue to monitor weather conditions and provide updates as needed throughout the event via email, Spartan Alerts, and the University’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
