The snow band has shifted into the City. Travel Ban remains in place. Dangerous conditions are possible over the next few hours with high winds & blowing snow.

Snowfall within the band can be as high as two inches per hour. It is not safe to go outside and we don't want a repeat of the deadly blizzard of 2022. The best thing you can do is stay home!
