Updated Friday morning with additional information from the University

Despite warnings that Winter Storm Nemo may bury New England in up to two feet of snow, Cornell plans to hold class Friday, a University official said Thursday evening.

“I spoke with Joe Lalley, [director of facilities operations], Cornell’s most faithful weather watcher, and he says the storm will definitely clobber [New York City] and New England, but Ithaca will be relatively unaffected,” Claudia Wheatley, director of press relations said Thursday.

According to Wheatley, the University has suspended its Campus to Campus bus service between NYC and Ithaca Friday evening.
