George Brown College open Thursday

George Brown College will be open on Thursday, Feb. 7, according to a tweet from the college. 

On Wednesday, George Brown College closed at noon due to freezing rain and ice pellets. All continuing education classes in the evening were also cancelled.

According to Environment Canada, a freezing drizzle advisory is in effect for the Toronto area.  

Periods of freezing drizzle are expected to continue through tonight and into Thursday. There is the potential for a brief period of freezing rain Thursday afternoon before temperatures rise above zero and the precipitation changes to rain or drizzle.

Challenging winter travelling conditions are expected through Thursday due to the prolonged period of icing.

Strong westerly winds with gusts in the 60 to 80 km/h range may be possible Thursday night into Friday.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

Some students were critical of the decision to open the school on Thursday as well as Wednesday morning.
