From the City of White Plains
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the White Plains area. Snowfall is expected to intensify during the afternoon and evening hours. The National Weather Service is currently predicting total accumulations of 6 - 8 inches. Please stay tuned to local media for up to date forecasts and current conditions.Our Department of Public Works crews are working now and will continue to work through the night to clear the roads as quickly and completely as possible. In order to enable them to do their job it is important that vehicles not be left parked on the street this evening. As a courtesy, the City is offering free parking to White Plains residents for vehicles registered to addresses within the City of White Plains in the Hamilton-Main and Chester-Maple parking garages starting at 2:00 PM today through 12:00 PM NOON tomorrow, Wednesday, January 22nd. All other garages, lots and on-street parking will remain subject to normal enforcement. There will be strict enforcement of the City's ban on overnight on-street parking as vehicles left on the street severely impair our ability to clear the snow and can create hazardous road conditions.
