MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The City of Minneapolis has declared its eight snow emergency this winter, which sets a new seasonal record.

The snow emergency begins on Monday. Drivers may move their cars to either side of non-snow emergency routes starting at 4 p.m. An allowance for winter parking restrictions will be made during the snow emergency.

However, drivers will once again be banned from parking on even sides of non-snow emergency routes beginning on Thursday at 8 a.m.

Meanwhile, the City of St. Paul remains in a snow emergency, which was declared on Sunday and went into effect at 9 p.m. that day. Crews were focusing on night phase routes even as morning broke, owing to the high moisture content of the snow.

A number of other cities were under snow emergencies or were observing parking restrictions to help crews clear Sunday’s snow. Click here to see the full list.
