Erin Crawley snowshoes along Jenifer Street during a winter storm in Madison on Tuesday.
Early afternoon snowfall totals across the region ranged from 7.5 inches on the UW-Madison campus to over 10 inches near Beaver Dam.
A snow emergency was declared for Madison Tuesday night and Wednesday night, meaning parked vehicles throughout the city, including the snow emergency zone Downtown and on the Isthmus and Near West Side, need to park on the odd house-numbered side of the street Tuesday night and the even house-numbered side of the street Wednesday night.
The Madison snow emergency could be extended beyond Thursday morning, depending on how easy or hard it is for plows and snow removal crews to get the big snowfall off the streets.
The Streets Division said everyone, especially in the snow emergency zone, should abide by the rules, but rule breakers stand the chance of a ticket and a tow.
