Due to limited parking availability, the city of Fort Wright announced it will not be issuing a snow emergency at this time. The city is still asking drivers to park their cars at off-street locations to make way for emergency vehicles.

Snowfall is expected to start Sunday night, but it will be light. Monday afternoon is when accumulation will start to post a threat to drivers.
