Hazardous Weather Outlook

Message from the Vice President for Student Development, Judi Biggs Garbuio, Ph.D. to the The Gonzaga Community

February 28, 2014

In our continuing effort to keep all community members safe, I am alerting you to a HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK that has been issued by the National Weather Service in Spokane for the coming weekend.

Today and tonight, a strong Arctic cold front is expected to push through the region, with winds gusting to +30 MPH overnight. Colder temperatures will accompany the winds, and wind chill values could drop to -3 degrees in Spokane, with blowing and drifting snow.

Saturday and Sunday temperatures will remain very cold, with brisk winds. Wind chill values may range from 10 to 15 degrees below zero. High temperatures are expected to climb only into the teens to mid-20s. Additional snow is expected over the weekend.

Warning, links and helpful tips for staying safe in cold weather can be found on Gonzaga’s website under Winter Weather Preparedness or at the links above.

We urge students and all members of the GU community to monitor forecasts carefully and take precautions to stay safe.

Thank you,

Judi Biggs Garbuio, Ph.D.
