Boston schools closed Tuesday, Pats parade rescheduled

UPDATE:
The city of Boston has canceled classes for all Boston Public Schools for a second day in a row, the mayor's office said Monday evening.

"We already have 12 inches of snow on the ground and up to six more inches coming, on top of the snow from last week's blizzard," Mayor Martin Walsh said in a statement. "The safety of our children and families in Boston is always our top priority. Our crews will be working hard to clear all streets and schools tonight and tomorrow as we recover from this ongoing winter storm."

The Patriots victory parade has also been rescheduled for Wednesday, according to the mayor's office. The team will roll from the Prudential Tower on Boylston Street to City Hall beginning at 11 a.m. The post-parade rally is still canceled due to extreme temperatures and unfavorable snow conditions.

A citywide parking ban is in effect as the storm is expected to dump between 8 and 14 inches of snow by early Wednesday morning. Parking is also banned along all DCR roadways, including Morrissey Boulevard and Quincy Shore Drive. A winter storm warning is in effect until 1 a.m. Tuesday.

The community meeting on home sharing that was rescheduled for today has been again rescheduled for another later date: Nov. 9 at the Boston Public Library, beginning at 6 p.m.

Busses are replacing trolley service between Ashmont Station and Mattapan Station for the day due to weather, according to the MBTA.

Despite closures in the Boston Public Schools, nearly everything else remains open, according to city's snow center dashboard.

Monday's trash pick-up continues as normally scheduled beginning at 5 a.m.

All city community centers, libraries, and municipal offices, including City Hall, are open regular hours.

Parking meters and the city's tow lots are also in effect as normal.

Story will be updated as the day progresses
