NORMAN — Hometown libraries in the Pioneer Library System will close at 7 p.m. this evening because of the threat of severe weather. Libraries are scheduled to reopen at 10 a.m. Tuesday to allow additional time for road conditions to improve in the morning. Management will continue to monitor the conditions. If the weather worsens this evening or overnight times could be subject to change.

The Norman City Council Community Planning and Transportation scheduled for 5:30 this evening, has been canceled due to the forecasted inclement weather. Once rescheduled, information regarding the meeting will be posted on the city website. Additional information is available at .

The University of Oklahoma Norman campus closed at 130 this afternoon, but the OU women’s basketball game against Baylor is still on. Due to inclement weather, admission to Monday’s women’s basketball game at 6 p.m. between Oklahoma and Baylor at Lloyd Noble Center will be free.

“Because of the expected winter storm, the OU Norman campus will close today, Monday, at 1:30 p.m.,” President David Boren said in a press release earlier today. “Please consult the university website for weather updates. The OU-Baylor women’s basketball game will likely be played tonight. Please consult for the latest information.”

Cleveland Area Rapid Transit will move to Alternative Schedule at 3 p.m. Since some routes are primarily used by OU students, some CART routes are affected by alternate schedule and no service, specifically Lindsey East, Lindsey West, Campus Loop and Lloyd Noble Center Shuttle.

“Tune into local television stations, visit CART on Facebook or at CARTNorman on Twitter for service changes. CART will continue service as long as conditions are safe,” CART advises.
