A snowstorm that made it's way through Winnipeg Wednesday night has left behind a significant amount of the white stuff.
Upwards of 10cm of snow fell on Winnipeg and Southeastern Manitoba.
Due to the extensive amount of snowfall, a Declared Snow Route Parking Ban has been put in place. Vehicles parked on any street designated as a snow route between midnight and 7am, will be ticketed and may be towed.
The public is also advised that the plowing of residential streets will begin Saturday morning, to improve the overall condition of residential streets. As a result, a Residential Parking Ban has been declared and will be in effect starting Saturday morning.
Winnipeggers are urged to confirm their snow zone by contacting 311 or by visiting knowyourzone.winnipeg.ca.
Starting at 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning, February 15, residents of snow zones C, F, I, M, N, S, U will need to move their vehicles as plowing will be underway in those zones until 7:00 a.m. Monday. Please refer to the entire schedule below for details about when snow zones will be cleared this week.
