Baltimore City's phase 3 snow emergency ends at 6 a.m. Sunday.

The mayor's Office of Emergency Management tweeted that phase 2 is still in effect and that motorists should only drive if it's imperative. 

Non-emergency vehicles were banned from the streets of Baltimore Saturday evening due to poor road conditions. 

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called a phase 3 snow emergency, similar to what the city of Annapolis announced early Saturday. 

Phase 2 snow emergencies requires vehicles on the road to be equipped with snow tires, all weather radials or chains, and prohibits parking in designated Snow Emergency Routes.
