Because of potential winter weather, UT will delay opening until 10 a.m., and classes will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

Classes that are scheduled to already be underway at 11 a.m. will also be canceled or be delayed, according to an announcement on UT's website. UT shuttles will begin first pickups at 9:15 a.m., according to a tweet from the University's official Twitter account.

University officials are concerned about precipitation freezing on roads overnight, according to University spokeswoman Cindy PoseyUniversity officials will continue to monitor weather conditions through the morning, according to the announcement.

"Temperatures are well below freezing throughout the country," UT Incident Meteorologist Troy Kimmel said. "So if it were to rain, it would probably freeze."

Kimmel said he expects temperatures to rise above freezing by midmorning Tuesday.

AISD will also operate on a two-hour delay.
