APSU officials announced that campus activities Monday have been switched to a remote system, and city and county officials advised people to stay off the roads when possible.
Snow is expected to begin at midnight Sunday night and continue into Monday. The National Weather Service in Nashville said 3 to 7 inches of snow could fall.
“Based on the information we have been monitoring, this is likely to be a significant snow event,” Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett said in a statement released Sunday afternoon.
Durrett and Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts are urging people to stay home on Monday.
“Road crews and equipment are ready to go, but with the amount of snow predicted and the freezing temperatures, it will take crews longer to clear the streets,” Durrett said.
Pitts added, “We are asking for patience. The fewer vehicles on the roads, the faster the streets can be cleared and the safer everyone will be.”
APSU officials also are monitoring the situation and will provide updates as soon as possible, according to a Rave Alert issued Sunday afternoon.
Monday is an academic holiday, and classes are not in session. Non-essential facilities will be closed, and employees should contact their supervisors for remote work assignments or to find out whether they need to report to work.
People who lose power or Internet disruptions should notify their supervisors. For updates about on-campus dining, go to apsu.edu/dining.
