Boston Schools Open, No Parking Ban in Effect
City officials urge caution during the remainder of Friday's winter storm.
Boston Public Schools remain open Friday morning, though Mayor Thomas Menino is urging residents to use caution and take advantage of public transportation as much as possible for their morning commute in light of the ongoing winter storm.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for eastern Massachusetts until about 1 p.m. Friday. The weather advisory calls for heavy, wet snow with an accumulation of 6-10 inches as well as strong wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour.
As of 8 a.m., the city had not issued a snow emergency or parking ban; regular parking rules remain in effect.
