Impending snowstorm halts campus activities

TUr Door and Owl Loop bus services will be canceled Saturday, and two basketball games were rescheduled as an impending snowstorm approaches Philadelphia this weekend.

“Conditions permitting, TUr Door and the Owl Loop will resume service as soon as possible Sunday,” the university wrote in an alert sent to the Temple community.

The men’s basketball game against Southern Methodist University was rescheduled to Sunday, Jan. 24, at 12 p.m. The women’s game against the University of Houston, which was scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m., will now be played Friday, Feb. 12. The time has not yet been determined.

Early Friday forecasts predicted 12 to 18 inches of snow that could arrive in full force as early as 4 p.m. in the city. Some forecasters had upped predictions to 20 inches by 3:30 p.m. Friday.

The impending snow also canceled Free Food Fun Friday in the Student Center.
