Boston schools will open Wednesday, and the citywide parking ban and snow emergency will end at 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to Mayor Thomas Menino's office. 

“Our snow removal teams did great work throughout the night last night,” Menino said in a statement. “Our crews will be out there all day and again tonight as we continue to widen roads, make our schools safe for students, and respond to residents’ concerns about residential areas.”

The mayor's office said crews removed 1,350 "loads" of snow from city streets Monday night.
