Snow Emergency Declared in Golden Valley

In the City of Golden Valley, if two or more inches of snow fall, a snow emergency is issued.

Golden Valley, along with a few other metro cities, declared snow emergencies on Sunday morning.

According to the City of Golden Valley's website, when snowfall continues for long periods, crews plow main roads and "through" streets that connect neighborhoods to state and county roads. 

Don't plan on parking on public streets today until snow has been plowed to the curb line. In addition, according to the City's snow rules, vehicles in violation are cited by patrolling police. Vehicles found to be obstructing traffic or snow plows, and those still in violation after 24 hours, may be towed.

Along with snow, weather service forecasters say that some wind gusts may exceed 45 miles per hour on Sunday, making travel conditions "nearly impossible."

Patch first reported on potential for Minnesota's first snow storm on Friday, when a winter weather watch was issued. That watch turned into a warning on Friday evening.
