The City of Watertown will be under a snow emergency beginning Saturday evening. The storm that is forecast to begin hitting the area on Saturday evening could drop six inches or more of snow on Watertown, according to the WBZ Channel 4 forecast.
See the City’s announcement below:
The Superintendent of Public Works is declaring a snow emergency effective 6:00 PM, Saturday, January 6, 2024. On-street parking will be banned, and any motor vehicle left on the street will be subject to towing.
Watertown is expecting 4- 8 inches of snow Saturday into Sunday. The snow emergency will remain in effect until further notice. Please do NOT throw snow into the roadway; doing so can create a health and safety hazard and is an enforceable violation of the City’s rules and regulations.
The Superintendent thanks you in advance for your cooperation during the snow emergency and requests that every resident assist in clearing fire hydrants and catch basins in your area. Please also clear the sidewalk in front of your property if you are able as it benefits all.
Finally, please check on your neighbors as this storm could produce high winds and possible power outages.
Further updates will be posted on the City of Watertown’s website: www.watertown-ma.gov and on the City’s Facebook and Instagram.
We are all in this together.
