St. Paul to residents: Move your parked cars


St. Paul city officials on Monday morning asked people to move their parked cars off north-south and east-west residential streets until crews have come through Monday, the Pioneer Press reported. Plowing and salting continue through Tuesday.

Crews in St. Paul plowed the arterial routes. Here's part of what St. Paul put on its website, noting that more precipitation is expected Monday night:

"What we don’t finish on residential streets today we will complete tomorrow. We would appreciate residents moving their cars off the street. That would help our operation tremendously. Tonight we will be out on the arterial streets salting as freezing rain is forecasted."

Snow emergencies were not declared in St. Paul or Minneapolis Sunday, but emergencies were in effect in other cities, including Bloomington and Golden Valley, and St. Louis Park banned street parking, Fox 9 noted. Fox 9 had some images of the snowfall Sunday, which amounted to 3 inches in Chaska, 2.5 in North St. Paul. About 3 inches of snow, followed by freezing rain, fell in Rochester, Patch reported; many schools in southeast Minnesota were closed Monday due to snow and ice.

The State Patrol reported 367 crashes across the state, KARE 11 reported.

Here's what the National Weather Service says about Monday night: "A chance of rain and snow before midnight, then snow and freezing rain. Low around 31. Light and variable wind. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. Little or no ice accumulation expected. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible."
