Please be advised that due to the impending winter storm, a snow emergency has been declared for the City of Pittsfield effective 7 a.m. Tuesday Jan. 26 through 7 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 28.

During this time, residents are asked to use off-street parking. If unable to park off-street, please follow the alternate side parking regulations:

• Between 7 a.m. on Tuesday and 7 a.m. on Wednesday: vehicles may be parked on the even side of the street;

• Between 7 a.m. on Wednesday and 7 a.m. on Thursday: vehicles may be parked on the odd side of the street; and

• All existing and signed parking regulations remain active.

Non-permitted vehicles are prohibited from parking or standing in any open municipal parking lot between the hours of 12 a.m. and 7 a.m.

Officials are as always asking residents to keep fire hydrants and sidewalks shoveled and accessible in case of emergencies.

Forecasters are expecting Berkshire County to see anywhere between three and six inches of snow this afternoon through Wednesday morning. It appears that parts of the county, including Nothern communities and higher elevations, could see even more.

Temperatures overnight tonight will hover around 25, with gusts around 10 miles per hour, which could certainly cause drifts in some areas too.

The City of Pittsfield thanks you for your patience and please stay safe.
