Area communities declaring snow emergencies ahead of incoming storm

Local communities are declaring snow emergencies ahead of the upcoming storm.

Both the city and town of Beloit have emergencies declared starting at 10:00 p.m. Monday night.

The city’s declaration lasts 24 hours, while the town will maintain the snow emergency until the end of Tuesday night.

Janesville officials are waiting a little longer for their snow emergency, which won’t go into effect until 8 a.m. tomorrow morning.

As always, a snow emergency means that all parked vehicles must be removed from city streets until snow plowing operations are complete
