A snow emergency for the City of Bowling Green has been declared. This snow emergency is effective noon on Wednesday.

Vehicles must be moved off designated snow streets and from cul-de-sacs within two (2) hours of this emergency declaration by 2 p.m. Vehicles not removed are subject to being towed and/or issued a citation.

Snow streets are marked with blue and white signs. A full list can also be found on the City’s website:

Even those who do not live on snow streets are asked to remove vehicles from the street whenever possible. Doing so helps crews remove snow along the roads quickly and safely.

A level one snow emergency was declared by the Wood County sheriff at 9:20 a.m.

This means roadways are hazardous, with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Drive very cautiously.

This morning, there has been no significant change in the forecast, according to the Wood County Emergency Management Agency.

The heaviest snow band will be moving through between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.  After that, some light snow will intermittently persist into the early portions of the overnight hours, however snow is expected to largely end around 9 p.m.  Cumulative snow totals are still expected to be around 6-8 inches and be wet and heavy.

“We encourage everyone to limit travel on the roads to essential needs.  This will help the road crews keep the roads clear and safe for those who need to travel,” the EMA stated.
