Waco, along with other parts of Texas, is expected to be hit with more freezing rain until Wednesday morning.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory lasting from midnight until noon.
Residents and commuters can expect less than half an inch of snow anytime before noon.
“We’re going to have the police officers evaluate the conditions in the morning,” said Leigh Ann Moffett, director of emergency management.
Representatives from Baylor Police Department, facility services, marketing and communications, campus services and Student Activities collectively make recommendations and send them to the provost and senior vice president for finance and administration, who make the final decision of whether to cancel classes.
Baylor delayed opening until 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Baylor campus and law school also closed Monday afternoon because of the dangerous weather conditions. The top levels of parking garages were also closed.
The decision to proceed with Baylor’s normal schedule was made before ice started to accumulate, Moffett said.
“We’re going to try to have a decision made and released by 6 a.m. [today],” said Moffett. “We always try to share information with our campus constituents that will impact them as soon as we have that information available.”
The cold front is expected to last through the weekend, with a chance of snow Saturday.
