Summary:  Winter Weather Update
Last Updated: Jan 03, 2018 10:36:01 am Message ID: 163712

Yale’s emergency operations team is monitoring the forecast and making preparations for the winter storm expected tomorrow. For New Haven, there is a winter storm warning in effect predicting 5 to 9 inches, and we will send an update this afternoon as the forecast becomes more detailed.

Faculty and staff may wish to consult with department business offices for any specific preparations needed in their areas.

Staff members who are not required to be at work to perform critical functions should consult a supervisor to discuss taking leave time (PTO). Managers are encouraged to be flexible whenever possible, such as granting leave requests or allowing staff to work from home where feasible. As a reminder, those performing critical functions in departments that are responsible for life, health, safety, and security must report to work. More information is available at Yale’s Hazardous Weather Policy.

As of 10:00 a.m:

  • The City of New Haven has not instituted a parking ban. To receive notices from the City of New Haven: https://www.newhavenct.gov/gov/depts/emergency_info/alerts.htm
  • Yale transportation expects to be running as scheduled in the morning, however shuttles may experience delays or stop service depending on road conditions. CheckYale Transloc for the most up-to-date information on shuttles.

We will continue to assess the situation and will add any updates affecting Yale to the Emergency Management website, and will email an update this afternoon. We continue to work closely with New Haven’s emergency operations.
