The City of New Bedford  as well as all local communities are preparing for another winter blast.

The city's snow czar, Ron LaBelle, tells WBSM News, his crews are getting ready to battle the storm. 

He says sanders were dispatched around the city early this afternoon, and the Department of Public Infrastructure has 110-pieces of equipment ready to roll.  LaBelle is optimistic about when the city's roads will be cleared.

The parking  bans in New Bedford and Dartmouth are now in effect.
