ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – The City of St. Paul declared a snow emergency Wednesday afternoon following the winter storm that struck the Twin Cities metro area earlier in the morning.

The snow emergency will begin at 9 p.m. Wednesday and no parking will be allowed on night plow routes. Parking is banned on those streets until the snow is plowed completely to the curb. Day plow routes will start at about 9 a.m. Thursday and continue until all snow has been plowed to the curb. All cars must be removed from day plow routes before 9 a.m. Thursday.

The City of Minneapolis has opted not to declare a snow emergency. City officials said more than 30 plows have been out on the roads since the snow started falling.

Officials said because only a few inches of snow fell and the temperatures will let the snow melt, a snow emergency is not necessary. Plows will remain on roads through Wednesday and into Thursday until streets are clear.

Here is a list of all the current snow emergencies and event cancellations.
