It’s shaping up to be a second wet KSUnite, with storms in the forecast for much of Tuesday pushing the KSUnite event into the K-State Student Union Ballroom.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a 90 percent chance of rain Tuesday, with the possibility of heavy storms throughout the day.

The main event is still planned to start at 1:20 p.m., with overflow opportunities in the Union Courtyard. There will be a live stream available as well.

The rain has not affected planned breakout sessions in the morning or the afternoon. Classes are still cancelled after 12:45 p.m., excluding labs.
