Mayor Marty Walsh said at a noon press conference the decision whether to close Boston schools tomorrow will be made later today.

The parking ban on major routes will end at 5 p.m.

Walsh also pleaded with people to stop throwing their damn snow into the streets (paraphrasing here). And he pleaded with younger residents to help shovel out their elderly neighbors.

If you're on foot and you find yourself walking in the street, take your headphones off, he said.

Also, the city will start using some big-ass snow-melting trucks tomorrow, initially downtown.
