There are several snow emergencies and parking restrictions in effect across the Capital Region. 

In East Greenbush, a snow emergency is in effect until 4 p.m. Friday. That means no parking on public roads within the town of East Greenbush. 

Cars that do not follow this may be ticketed and towed.



In Nassau, there is no parking allowed on town roadways. Anyone who parks on the roads will also be towed.

Leaders there say residents should be prepared for power outages due to icing, sleet, and wind. 

In the village of Catskill, there are parking restrictions from 8 p.m. 

Vehicles will need to be parked on the odd side of the street until 8 a.m. Friday morning, then the even side until the snow emergency is canceled.

If you have to be on the road this morning, the DOT has advice on how to approach the roads.

"It means either try to leave early or just plan that it's going to take you that much longer to get home. You really need to drive to these conditions," said spokesperson Bryan Viggiani.

The DOT is also reminding drivers not to "crowd the plow." Snow plows usually drive 35 miles per hour on the highways, and you're asked to leave a good amount of room between your car and the plow.
