People are encouraged to stay off the roads today after the National Weather Service has issued both Blizzard and Winter Storm Warnings that will make driving conditions dangerous.

As of 7:45 a.m., Geneva had received about 4 inches of snow. The City's snow parking ordinance is in effect.

The main arterial routes are in decent shape at this point, and crews were finishing up creating passable driving lanes in residential areas this morning. However, snow is expected to fall continuously throughout the rest of the day.

The Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 2 p.m. Sunday when the Blizzard Warning will take place through midnight. Snow is expected to be heavy at times with snowfall totals reaching between 10 to 15 inches with isolated totals of 18 inches possible.

Heavy snow combined with strong winds will make travel conditions extremely difficult, even more so in open areas. White out conditions may take place today. The Geneva Police Department suggests that you avoid traveling unless absolutely necessary.

If you do need to travel in an emergency, please make sure to bring a charged cell phone, food, water, blankets and a flashlight. If you become stranded, stay in your vehicle and call for help. Even though our plows will be out working today, authorities are strongly discouraging driving given the hazardous weather conditions.
