The City of Winnipeg is preparing for a long night of snow clearing.

Crews will be out clearing Snow Routes after a low-pressure system left around 5 cm of snow in the city Wednesday evening and early Thursday. As a result, the City will begin clearing those Snow Routes earlier than usual.

The Extended Snow Route Parking Ban goes into effect between midnight and 7 a.m. Friday. The ban remains active until the city announces the return to its usual time.

Vehicles left on the street are subject to a $100 fine and possible towing.
