As of Monday, 3/13, at 4:30 PM, the forecast continues to show blizzard conditions for Tuesday, beginning between 3:00 to 5:00 tomorrow morning, with heavy snow of three to four inches per hour through the afternoon, and wind gusts of up to 60 MPH. The snow is expected to taper off between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM Tuesday, with strong winds continuing through Tuesday night, and total accumulations between 22 to 30 inches across Western and Central Connecticut, with l0 to 18 inches expected for New Haven.

We will continue to monitor conditions and the university has teams in place to handle essential campus functions.

The City of New Haven is issuing a parking ban that will go into effect at midnight tonight. The City will be towing vehicles so that it can plow the roads, so please make arrangements to get your car off the road, and move it to either a driveway or parking lot, to avoid being towed. Beginning at 6:00 PM today, public school parking lots and the Temple Street, Crown Street, and Granite Square parking garages are also available to residents.

The Mayor has issued a citywide travel ban for tomorrow that prohibits use of city streets except for essential employees – as designated by their employers – on their way to and from work. 

Staff members performing essential functions who have been asked to come to work tomorrow should carry their Yale ID when traveling.  

As noted in our message this morning, the university will be closed, except for those performing essential public safety or other life safety or critical functions, starting tomorrow morning, Tuesday, 3/14 at 7:00 AM through Wednesday, 3/15 at 10:00 AM.

If conditions change, we will share the updates with you and will post information to emergency.yale.edu
