Ahead of Monday's snow storm, some Berkshire County towns have called for snow emergencies, which include parking bans.

With weekend forecasts predicting “substantial amounts of snow, perhaps double-digits," according to NewsChannel 13 and WAMC forecaster Paul Caiano, some Berkshire County towns have already declared snow emergencies for Sunday evening into Monday.

The following municipalities have declared winter storm emergencies:

  • Adams: From midnight Monday, Jan. 17, through midnight Tuesday, Jan. 18. "No vehicle is permitted to park or stand unattended upon any street, highway, traveled way, or public parking lot during a storm emergency. No vehicle is permitted to park or stand unattended on any open municipal parking lot during a storm emergency permitting the lot to be effectively cleared of snow."

  • Pittsfield: From 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan 16 through 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18. "For the duration of the snow emergency, which covers the period of snow fall as well as the time required for the city to clean up and treat the streets after the storm ends, residents are asked to use off-street parking. If off-street parking is not available, residents may park on the street observing the following alternate side parking regulations: Between 7 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Monday, vehicles may park on the even side of the street. Between 7 p.m. Monday and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, vehicles may park on the odd side of the street. Residents in and around downtown Pittsfield are encouraged to use the McKay Street parking garage for overnight parking, which will be open to the public free of charge starting today through the duration of the emergency."
