CLEVELAND – With snow in the forecast for the weekend and frigid temperatures next week, City of Cleveland crews are gearing up again for another round of winter weather. With three to six inches of snow expected by tomorrow afternoon, and a forecast of high winds, we encourage everyone to stay indoors as much as possible and limit travel.  However, if you must go outdoors, take proper precautions to stay safe. Click here for a list of cold weather tips.

Roads: Currently, 23 crews are continuing to clear City streets of last night’s snow. Our primary and secondary roads are in fair to good condition and traffic is moving throughout the City. At midnight tonight, we will increase staffing to 48 crews. We have 6,600 tons of salt on hand and a delivery of 1,100 tons on its way.

The City of Cleveland encourages residents to:

  • Park off-street whenever possible to give snow plows the ability to plow streets curb-to-curb.
  • Stay off the streets as much as possible for their own personal safety and to allow snow plows greater access to the city’s roadways.
  • If you must travel, use caution, allow extra time, and remember not to “block the box” at intersections.
  • Visit ready.gov for more information on how to make an emergency plan and supply kit.
  • Pay attention to local news for weather advisories and visit http://www.city.cleveland.oh.us/ and clecityhall.com for up-to-date information from the City of Cleveland.

Updates will be available as the forecasted snow event progresses.
