A city ordinance forbids motorists from parking vehicles on public streets any time wihtin twenty-four hours after a snow fall of three inches or more. Such parking is allowed after the snow has been removed. Streets designated as snow removal streets in the city are:
Level 1 Snow Alert — Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy; drive carefully.
Level 2 Snow Advisory — Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.
Level 3 Snow Emergency — All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to arrest.
NATIONAL SUMMARY Periods of snow will make for slow travel from the northern Rockies eastward into the Dakotas tonight. Some rain will dampen the Texas and Louisiana coasts. More snow will be in northern New England. Tuesday will be a dry, mild day across the mid-Atlantic and southern New England with high temperatures running around 10 degrees above average. It will be unusually warm from central Texas northeastward into the Tennessee Valley as well. Temperatures will be closer to normal across the central Gulf Coast as a disturbance delivers rain to the area. A storm ejecting out of the northern Rockies will spread a bit of rain and snow from Montana to Colorado and into Iowa. A slushy coating to an inch will accumulate in the Plains, but up to 3 inches can be expected in the higher elevations of Wyoming and Colorado. Dry weather will be the rule along the West Coast with abundant sunshine across much of the region. SPECIAL WEATHER Heavy Snow Reaches South A major snowstorm tracking from the South up to the mid-Atlantic dumped over a foot of snow from Virginia to Tennessee back on this date in 1960. The heaviest snow fell in Kentucky where some areas picked up as much as 2 feet in snow accumulation. Accumulations of 10 inches were also seen as far south as Georgia.
