The snow emergency has been declared for 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Here are some guidelines from the city's website:

-- During a snow emergency, parking is prohibited on all major arteries in Boston. These streets are posted with “Tow Zone No Parking During Snow Emergency” signs.

-- On streets other than major arteries, do not park within 20 feet of an intersection or further than one foot from the curb, as this impedes access for both emergency vehicles and snow plows.

-- City Hall will be open for business on Tuesday. All employees are directed to report to work.

-- Do not throw snow back into the street. “Throwbacks” force the city to remove snow from the same street twice.

-- Property owners are reminded to shovel snow from sidewalks that abut their homes and businesses and any handicapped ramps close to your homes or business.
