Weather forecasters are predicting a winter blizzard bringing 16-24 inches or more of snow and strong wind gusts to arrive in our area starting at some point on Friday, Feb. 8 -- with light snow in the morning, heavier in the afternoon, and continuing through midday Saturday.

As a result, Harvard Kennedy School will be curtailing operations on Friday beginning at noon. Friday afternoon classes and major events will be cancelled, and offices will be closed except for essential personnel. As of noon, entry to the Littauer, Belfer, Rubenstein, and Taubman buildings will be restricted to Harvard ID holders via the courtyard entrances.

We expect to resume normal operations on Monday, Feb. 11.
