With a snowstorm expected to blanket Boston before dawn Wednesday, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh moved Tuesday night to cancel school and impose a parking ban.
Between 6 and 10 inches of snow could fall in Boston, most of it before 1 p.m., National Weather Service meteorologist Eleanor Vallier-Talbot said. Worcester County could get 10 to 14 inches.
“It looks like most of the heavy snow is going to be along and below the [Massachusetts Turnpike] and into Worcester County,” Vallier-Talbot said.
A winter snow emergency and parking ban took effect at 11 p.m. Tuesday night, Walsh said in a statement. Boston public schools will be closed Wednesday.
Parking will not be allowed on most major streets during the ban. A list of the streets affected by the ban and alternative parking areas can be found on the city’s website.
