ORIGINAL POST: 

With a few inches of snow on the ground and a winter weather advisory in effect through 4 p.m. Saturday, the City of Farmington has declared a snow emergency, effective at 1 p.m. on January 19.

All vehicles must be removed from the roadways by 1 a.m. on Sunday, January 20, to allow Department of Public Works crews to plow snow.

According to the National Weather Service, snow depths of up to four inches may accumulate, and gusty winds will lead to blowing snow in open areas. Drivers are urged to be careful on snow-covered roads with limited visibility.

Tonight’s Glow Skate at the Riley Park Ice Rink will go on in the snow. From 7 p.m.-9 p.m., skate to disco lights and dance music, warm up by the fire, and enjoy s’mores. Cost is $5 per person, $20 per family. There’s no skate rental, but you can borrow from about 40 pairs available on a first-come-first-served basis.
