BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Mayor Michelle Wu is declaring a snow emergency for the City of Boston ahead of a massive storm heading to New England this Saturday.
This comes as Saturday's storm is expected to dump around 18 to 24 inches of snow in the city, combined with winds of around 40 to 50 miles per hour.
A parking ban for the city will go into effect at 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28, which means any vehicles parked on major roads or main arteries during the storm will be towed. Any drivers with a resident sticker will be able to park their cars in parking garages either for free at a discounted rate.
Space savers will also be allowed during the snow emergency and can be used up until 48 hours after the end of the emergency. After that point, all space savers must be removed. Space savers are permitted in all Boston neighborhoods, except the South End.
