“Areas in and around Hartford are expected to get upwards of 6 inches of snow by early Tuesday morning. The problem is, it will be snowing on and off all day so it makes sense to have school cancelled,” said Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Sam Kantrow.

There will also be a city wide parking ban beginning Monday at 6 a.m. This after last week’s snow storm resulted in a record number of cars being towed that did not follow the ban.

“We need as many cars as possible off the streets to plow effectively,” said Mayor Segarra. “The storm is expected to be the heaviest during the day tomorrow and it’s much more difficult to move vehicles when snow is on the ground. Residents should start preparing for the storm as soon as possible.”

Residents without access to off-street parking should move their vehicles to one of the following authorized parking areas before the start of the parking ban:

  • Morgan Street Garage
  • 2 Holcomb Street Lot
  • Keney Park Entrance Lot-Ridgefield Street
  • KDA Center Lot-Naugatuck Street
  • Pope Park Center Lot-Park Terrace
  •  Metzner Center Lot-Franklin Avenue
  •  Colt Park Lot-Wawarme Avenue
  •  Elizabeth Park Lots
  •  All Hartford Schools Parking Lots

Residents whose vehicles are towed during the parking ban can contact the Hartford Police at (860) 757-4000. The cost for retrieving your towed vehicle is $93.59, with an additional $99.00 ticket which owners are responsible for paying before the answer date.

Anyone in need of shelter is urged to call 2-1-1. If temperatures are below 25 degrees, the following 24 hours shelters will be open in Hartford:

  • McKinney Shelter: 34 Huyshope Ave, (860) 722-6922
  • Immaculate Conception Shelter: 560 Park St, (860) 724-4823
  • South Park Inn: 75 Main St, (860) 724-0071
