You will want to make sure your car or truck is off the street after a messy storm hit the province Sunday night.

The city is putting its winter parking ban in place to help with snow clearing.

It means you could get a ticket or end up being towed between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. if you park on the street.

The city is expected to receive up to 20 centimetres Sunday into Monday.

Environment Canada has put snowfall warnings in place ahead of the system.
