Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for the city, with 15-25 cm of snow expected to fall.

The plow-out is scheduled to begin at 6 a.m. and continue until all roads and sidewalks are cleared.

Any vehicles on the road past 6 a.m. could be ticketed and towed.

The city added that it takes crews about 24 hours to clear the roads after a storm has stopped, but a significant snowfall and changing weather conditions could cause delays.

Main roads are plowed first, followed by secondary roads and residential streets last.

The city’s sidewalks and paths usually take about three days.

The city’s snowplow operators will be kept busy this week with another snowstorm expected to hit the area on Thursday, according to Global News Meteorologist Anthony Farnell.
