Ellsworth AFB reporting essential personnel only; A&FRC closed today; school closures; weather update

Due to today’s weather conditions and base reporting instructions, the Airman & Family Readiness Center will be closed today.

Today’s reintegration briefing is cancelled. Our next bi-weekly reintegration briefing will occur next Tuesday. Please call us (605-385-4663) on Monday, 14 January to register for that briefing.

According to the Ellsworth School Liaison Officer, Douglas and Rapid City Schools, Meade Schools, Rapid City Catholic Schools, Rapid City Christian, Calvary Christian and Zion Lutheran are closed today. Local news are also reporting that all school activities are cancelled.

Per 28 BW/CC: Ellsworth AFB is currently MIN ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL only. Group commander discretion to modify shifts, show times, and activities to meet mission requirements.

Per 28 BW/CC: Please use extreme caution today, especially if you will be out this afternoon/evening, as the high winds and blowing snow will likely cause white out conditions. High temps in the low teens tomorrow and Sunday. NOT a good time to get stranded somewhere.

Per 28 BW/CC: WINTER WEATHER UPDATE: The models remain consistent, with a likely increase in overall intensity. You should expect to see around 7 inches of snow today through early Saturday morning. High winds and cold temperatures all weekend. Because of the cold temperatures and wind, you can expect significant drifting and reduced visibility.
