(Austin/KJCE) University of Texas officials say they're still on track with plans to hold the outdoor, university-wide commencement tomorrow, but have a rain plan as a backup.

Individual colleges will hold their commencement ceremonies starting today and running all the way through Saturday afternoon; the university-wide commencement on the Main Mall, south of the UT Tower, is planned for Saturday evening but officials will be keeping an eye on the weather.

If commencement is rescheduled for Sunday, all activities will start one hour earlier than originally planned, weather permitting.​

If the university needs to reschedule due to weather danger, it will announce the decision Saturday.
