Classes at Stamford Public Schools were cancelled again Friday because of the additional snowfall overnight.

And there apparently isn't an end in sight as the National Weather Service is predicting more snow over the President's Day Weekend.

And with more snow on the way, the Stamford Fire Department is asking for the public's help. Here's their posting on Twitter Friday morning, "This storm was a whopper! We need your help digging out hydrants. Please adopt a hydrant today!" 

The Ferguson Library is open today but the Babytime program is cancelled.

With the sun shining during this lull in the snowfall, the city of Stamford reminds residents and businesses:

"Property owners must remove snow as per City Ordinance which mandates the removal of snow and ice on sidewalks in front of homes and businesses within twelve (12) hours of the ceasing of such snow fall or freezing; or if such fall or freezing is in the nighttime, before 10 a.m. of the succeeding day so that such sidewalk shall be safe for public travel."

Here is the weekend forecast:
  • Today: Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 39. Breezy, with a west wind 20 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 37 mph.
