Residents are reminded about the winter parking ban that is in place. No parking is allowed overnight between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m., and any vehicles that are illegally parked will be ticketed and towed at the owner's expense if they interfere with snow removal operations, according to the town.

Below is what you need to know about the latest winter storm. We will be updating this storm center article when warranted during the storm, so be sure to check back throughout.

Current Forecasts

All indications are that Acton and the surrounding area is likely to get a minimum of six inches of snow.

That total, according to several forecasts, could climb up to as much as 10 inches in town. The snow isn't expected to be the light, fluffy stuff. Meteorologists are expecting this to be a heavier snow.

School Closed

There was no need for students to get up early on Wednesday to check if they had to bundle up and head to school.

That's because Acton Public Schools made the decision on Tuesday night to cancel school on Wednesday due to the snow.
