BREAKING NEWS: GW cancels Tuesday classes after 4:30 p.m.

Posted Jan. 27 3:50 p.m.

The University canceled Tuesday classes beginning after 4:30 p.m. due to inclement weather, said Bob Ludwig, interim director of Media Relations.

Ludwig said he does not know if classes will be canceled or delayed Wednesday.

“It’s a case-by-case basis in terms of what information we’re getting from local authorities, weather forecasters and what’s actually happenings,” Ludwig said in an interview Tuesday afternoon.

American, Gallaudet and Georgetown universities have also canceled late afternoon and night classes in anticipation of the storm.

The city will see between one and two inches of snow tonight, said Cindy Woods, meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Baltimore-Washington Region Forecast Office.

At Dulles International Airport, snow has already begun to fall, said Woods, adding that District suburbs could see up to 3 inches of snow by 10 p.m.

She said the storm, which originated over the Gulf of Mexico, will taper out by midnight.

“This is the end of things, it’s winding down,” she said, referring to the recent snow storms.
