In an abundance of caution, city officials announced Tuesday afternoon that a local snow alert would begin at 9 p.m., even though the overnight forecast only called for a 30% chance of rain around 3 a.m.

Police spokeswoman Beth Kerr said the department wanted to give the residents the opportunity to move their vehicles before they go to work Wednesday morning.

A snow alert is an advance notice to move cars and vehicles off the main routes, so crews can clear the streets more easily if heavy snow falls.

Forecasters are calling for snow starting around 8 p.m. Wednesday.
