St. Paul and Minneapolis have both declared snow emergencies Sunday after several inches of snow fell in the metro Saturday night.

In St. Paul, parking on night plow routes is off-limits starting 9 p.m. Sunday, followed by day plow routes at 8 a.m. Monday. The snow emergency lasts 96 hours, or until Thursday at 9 p.m.

Night plow routes include all of downtown and streets marked with night plow routes; streets not marked with a night plow sign should be considered day plow routes. A winter parking map is available online

Minneapolis' snow emergency also starts at 9 p.m. Sunday. The city's three-day snow emergency rules are as follows:

  • 9 p.m Sunday to 8 a.m. Monday: No parking is allowed on either side of a snow emergency route until 8 a.m. or the road is fully plowed.
  • 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday: No parking is allowed on the even-numbered side of a non-snow emergency route until 8 p.m. or the parkway is fully plowed.
  • 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday: No parking is allowed on the odd-numbered side of a non-snow emergency route until 8 p.m. or the parkway is fully plowed.

More information is available on the city's snow information website.
