WATERTOWN PATCH STORM CENTRAL UPDATES, CLOSINGS & MORE:

Saturday, Dec. 29:

 

10:15 p.m.

Snow continues to fall steadily in Watertown, and about 4 inches has fallen on the streets of Watertown, according to official Patch measurements (using a yard stick!) What few cars have ventured onto the streets are crawling along, near Watertown Square.

 

7:50 p.m.

The snow really started falling in Watertown around 4::30 p.m., and now is falling fast and heavy. It appears about 2 inches has accumulated on the ground.

  • While the Watertown overnight parking ban was lifted this week, the heavy snowfall means that cars should not park on public streets in town. In addition, the DCR has a parking ban.
  • Cars can park in municipal lots around town, at schools, and other selected sites. 
  • MBTA buses are running in Watertown, but some routes have delays due to the weather. As of 7:30 p.m., the 57 Bus from Watertown Square to Kenmore Square is delayed 15-20 minute delays, according to the MBTA's Twitter feed.
