The city issued the warning on its website around 12:30 p.m.

"As the snow continues, road conditions are beginning to deteriorate. Roads are icy and becoming treacherous," the city posted. "Please stay off the roads if possible while we are under the winter snow warning."

Drivers should use caution and "leave plenty of stopping distance between you and the vehicle in front of you."

The storm is anticipated to continue through tomorrow morning.

A variety of school activities have been cancelled, and the city is under an emergency snow ban through Dec. 27 at noon.
