Expected snowfall could cause delays for students and faculty commuting

Cameron Craig, a geographer and climatologist at Eastern, advises students to leave the flip-flops at home today as students make their way to classes.

“People just need to be wearing appropriate clothing; no flip-flops,” Craig said.

Craig said Charleston should expect to get three to five inches of snow on through out the day.

As of Monday afternoon, temperatures for today are expected to be in the mid-20’s and drop to the single digits overnight.

Craig said no rain or sleet expected, only snow. This “all snow event” may affect the morning commute he said. Craig suggests students and staff commuting to work or school take their morning drive or walk very slow. Because of weather conditions, Craig suggests students and staff to give themselves enough time for travel to get to their destinations on time because of the weather.

Despite the warmer weather a few weeks ago, temperatures are currently about where they should be, if not colder Craig said.

“These people who love snow, this is their season,” Craig said.
