The City of Springfield has declared a snow emergency, effective at 8pm tonight. The declaration means that cars should not be parked on-street along designated snow routes, in order to clear a path for snow plows. Vehicles that are still on those routes after 8pm could be towed. The city expects the snow emergency to remain in place for 48 hours.
Several surrounding communities have also issued snow emergency declarations, including Riverton, Sherman and New Berlin. Some schools are dismissing early and some events are cancelled… call ahead before you venture out, and be sure to check our closings list at wmay.com.
