The City of Spokane has upgraded to a Stage 2 snow condition, meaning crews will work 24 hours a day and complete a full city plow.

Spokane upgraded from Stage 1 to Stage 2 at 11:00 Monday morning. That means cars parked on arterial streets and fixed bus routes need to be moved off those roads. By 6 pm, vehicles should be parked on the even side of the street on residential hill routes. In other areas, parked vehicles need to be moved to the even side of the street by 11 pm.

Under a Stage 2 snow condition, cars cannot be parked downtown between 2 am and 6 am. The restrictions in place are so that plows can more easily move through the streets. Things in Browne's Addition are a little more complicated; crews typically reach that neighborhood after the city plow is complete. Watch in the coming days for updates on parking restrictions there.

The official reading indicates Spokane received 6.9 inches of snow overnight.
