The City of Portage la Prairies snow cleaning crews have started the big job following a white Wednesday.

“City crews work as fast as possible to remove snow from the streets, but parked cars can get in our way. Please do not park on the street during snow-clearing operations.”

Snow stopped falling late Wednesday night and even though there is a slight chance of some light snow Thursday, no significant accumulation, if any, is expected.

According to Environment Canada, 11.6 cm of snow fell in Portage on Wednesday.
