University of Texas student Rebecca Kivlovitz makes the most of the winter weather.

The snow is melting but freezing conditions overnight could make travel difficult. Here' s a developing list of cancellations and delays for tonight and tomorrow. If you would like to add anything, post it in the comments below.

  • Austin Community College continues to monitor the weather. Another update will be provided Friday by approximately 8 pm on the college homepage, Facebook, and Twitter
  • The University of Texas at Austin remains officially closed this evening.  Evening shift work (e.g., custodial) has been cancelled, however, essential personnel should continue to report as scheduled.
  • Capital Metro is operating on a Sunday level of service.  No UT shuttle are running.  MetroRail is also not running.  There's no e-Bus service tonight.  Cap Metro officials say they will close service tonight at 7 pm.  They expect to return to their normal Saturday schedule tomorrow, but there could be some route detours because of early morning icy conditions.
  • The David Bromberg show scheduled at the Cactus Café for this evening has been moved to Threadgills South on Riverside Drive. Doors at 8 pm. Show at 9 pm.
  • At the Zach Theater, Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Whit of Molly Ivins is still going on.
  • Because delivery of the Austin American-Statesman was affected by the weather, subscribers can download a free electronic edition (exact replica of print edition). Do that here.
