Updated: February 21, 2013 3:37PM
Snow is expected to over spread the area between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. The heaviest period of snow should fall between midnight and 6 a.m. After that the snow is expected to taper off to light snow, flurries and freezing drizzle. Total snow accumulation is expected to be in the range of 2.5 to 3 inches.
The forecast following the snow calls for sunshine with rain on Monday.
According to James Maiworm, superintendent of Streets and Sanitation Overnight Public Works, will have a full crew and expect to be in a full plowing operation. The overnight objective is to manage the storm by clearing main streets and opening up residential streets. Crews will refocus on main streets just prior to rush hour to have them as clear and passible as the storm allows.
Cleanup operations will continue all day Friday with the anticipated focus on clearing residential streets curb to curb.
Based on the forecasted amounts and the warming temperatures no parking restrictions are expected at this time.
