Wake Forest University continues to monitor the track of Tropical Storm Florence and its impact to the campus community. We encourage students, faculty and staff to prioritize safety, remain aware of weather conditions and take the duration of this storm seriously.

At this time, we are still planning to resume classes and normal operations on Monday, Sept. 17.

The latest forecast from the National Weather Service indicates that Florence is weakening. Forecasts predict 6-10 inches of rain; however, winds in excess of 30 miles per hour are increasingly less likely. Winston-Salem/Forsyth County conditions will vary significantly depending on the speed and track of the storm, both of which continue to be difficult to predict.

Students returning to campus from outside this area should continue to monitor roadways, airports and regional weather conditions. Students should contact faculty if they anticipate being delayed in returning to campus.

Wake Forest will provide a mid-day update tomorrow, or as weather conditions necessitate.

All Hurricane Florence-related updates will be posted on the Wake Alert website (wakealert.wfu.edu). Please continue to monitor the Wake Alert website, follow @WakeAlert on Twitter and Facebook (facebook.com/WakeAlert), and add the Wake Forest Weather/Emergency line (336-758-5935) to phone contacts.
