Waltham officials have announced a snow emergency and parking ban effective at midnight tonight as local officials prepare for a wet, heavy snowstorm that is expected to pound the region with up to a foot of snow.
The parking ban will start at midnight, but cars can park in municipal and school lots starting at 6 p.m. tonight, according to Waltham police. Anyone who does so must be prepared to move their cars after the parking ban is lifted, police said.
Snow will begin falling early Wednesday morning, between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m., and is expected to fall hardest from 7 a.m. through 1 p.m., according to meteorologist David Epstein.
