Emergency Over. Greenwich Weekend Forecast for More Snow

Though the emergency was lifted Friday afternoon, the weekend forecast is for some more snow.

The NWS predicts snow on Saturday mainly after noon, with 1-3 inches possible.

On Saturday night there is a chance of snow before 9:00p.m. with a gradual clearing, a low around 19° and less than one inch additional snow possible.

On Sunday there is a chance of flurries after 3:00p.m. with a high near 26°.

Though the snow emergency was lifted Friday afternoon, Greenwich Police Capt. Kordick said Public Works crews are working on the roads over the weekend and asks residents to voluntarily avoid on-street parking as best as possible.

Careful Where You Toss Your Snow
Kordick’s message to residents warns against tossing snow onto public streets or sidewalks as Greenwich Police will “aggressively enforce” violations with fines of $118.

What is the Town rule about removing snow from your sidewalk?
Residents have 18 hours to remove snow and ice from sidewalks from the time the snow has fallen or the ice has formed.

Fire Hydrants – True Lifesavers
According to Kordick, many fire hydrants are becoming obstructed and residents with a fire hydrant on their property are encouraged to shovel them out.  “Even if you do not have a fire hydrant on your property, please do not be afraid to adopt a nearby fire hydrant in your neighborhood,” Kordkick’s announcement said.
