What is a snow alert?

City officials will declare a snow alert for plows to clear the streets after at least 2 inches of snow. Plow drivers focus on emergency snow routes first, then move into each of Sioux Falls' three zones to clear off all city streets.

During a snow alert, cars parked on the street will be ticketed and towed.
