Weather Advisory

September 18, 2012

To the Keene State College Community:

The weather service has issued a weather advisory for most of New Hampshire that predicts strong winds and heavy rain through this evening.

Showers will begin this afternoon and wind and rain will increase throughout the day. Wind gusts may reach hazard levels with the potential for gusts as high as 30-50 mph at times. In the vicinity of 9PM-11PM through 4AM, there is the potential for a squall line to move across the state from west to east. This may produce lightning and isolated damaging wind gusts as high as 55-65 mph. After 4am, winds will diminish significantly from west to east as the cold front pushes across the state. By daybreak Wednesday, winds will be out of the northwest at 10-20 gusting to 25-30 mph. Rainfall amounts will range between 0.75-1.50 inches. Isolated higher amounts to 2 inches cannot be ruled out.

Members of the Keene State community are urged to use caution when traveling during this time. Please check your campus email, MyKSC, and the college's website for important information or possible delays or cancellations during this weather event. Campus Safety will advise the community of any issues that would impact parking on campus.
