Northwestern University has announced that it is cancelling all classes that were scheduled to start after 5 p.m. this afternoon and that the university’s libraries will close this afternoon.

The announcement says that shuttle buses will operate for as long as it is considered safe to drive but delays are likely. Riders can call the Shuttle Hotline 847-467-5284 for updates.

A decision on whether to cancel classes and close the University on Wednesday is expected to be made early Wednesday morning.
