3/2/23 Weather Monitoring Message to TCU Campus

Dear TCU Students, Faculty and Staff,

Please be aware of the weather, as there is a potential for severe weather in the Fort Worth area.

Storms may develop later this afternoon and into the evening, ahead of a rapidly advancing cold front. Some of these storms could become severe. Damaging wind gusts, tornadoes and large hail are all possible hazards.  Contact TCU Police if emergency services are needed at 817-257-7777. Weather can change at any time, so you are encouraged to monitor local news reports.

Be Safe and Use Good Judgment

Above all, the safety of Horned Frogs comes first. Students, faculty and staff should always use their best judgment regarding their ability to travel safely during inclement weather. Students who are not able to report for class due to inclement weather impeding travel when the university is open should contact their professor, and faculty and staff employees should contact their supervisor.


The TCU Alert system, the University’s direct mass notification system that reaches out via text, phone and email, will be activated in the event of a Tornado Warning. The information also will be available on tcu.edu and via TCU’s social media accounts.

If a Tornado Warning is issued for the TCU campus, we will send a TCU Alert to Seek Shelter. Review shelter protocols and locations BEFORE a warning is issued: https://publicsafety.tcu.edu/seek-shelter/

Thank you,

TCU Emergency Management
