OTTAWA -- The City of Ottawa has issued a winter weather parking ban for Thursday as heavy wet snow falls in the capital.

The city says due to weather conditions, the winter weather parking ban will be in effect between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday across Ottawa.

During a winter weather parking ban, parking is prohibited on city streets so snow plow crews can plow roads easily and effectively.

Vehicles parked on the street during a ban may be ticketed and towed.

During the winter weather parking ban on Feb. 16, Ottawa Bylaw officers issued 2,777 tickets for on-street parking violations. The fine is $125, with an early payment option of $105.


Thursday will see cloudy skies with a 30 per cent chance of flurries in the morning. It will be clearing late in the morning. High minus 3.

Friday will see a mix of sun and cloud. High plus 1.

Above seasonal temperatures are in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday.
