With up to 9 inches of snow and subzero temperatures expected by morning, motorists have been told to stay off the roads.

Local officials declared a snow emergency with a travel warning Sunday afternoon, meaning only emergency vehicles or motorists with an emergency should be driving so plows can clear the streets.

Police can issue tickets to motorists who shouldn’t be on the roads, Johnson County Emergency Management Director Stephanie Sichting said.
