The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm advisory for Durham beginning at noon on Monday, March 3.

Rain is expected to begin about 7-8 a.m., and temperatures are expected to fall throughout the morning. Sleet is forecasted to begin in Durham around 11 a.m. and is expected to continue through the afternoon and evening, when it will probably be mixed with snow. 

Duke officials are closely monitoring the forecasts for winter weather and will communicate updates about campus operations later Monday morning. 

During times of severe weather, some staff positions require on-site presence to continue operations. Given the possibility of inclement weather, staff members should review Duke's severe weather and emergency conditions policy and discuss with their managers what they should do if the policy is activated.

Duke officials will communicate updates as conditions warrant, and future updates will be posted on Duke Today as necessary.
