ALERT FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3, 2018
Please be advised that the National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for all coastal areas in New Jersey. Expected snowfall totals have increased over the past few hours.
Along and east of the New Jersey Turnpike, significant impacts to travel are expected due to snow covered roads, lower visibility, and blowing snow. Snowfall amounts are expected to be in the range of anywhere from six to thirteen inches. Wind chills are likely to fall below zero at times on Thursday evening and continue through Saturday. Temperatures will be in the single digits and teens.
Minor tree damage is possible due to winds gusting up to 50 mile per hour. Winds will also contribute to significant blowing snow. Minor roadway flooding is also possible. Be aware that stagnant flood water may freeze on road surfaces. Using extreme caution is advised. Do not drive unless you absolutely have to, as the roads will be extremely icy.
Please park all vehicles in driveways if possible so that our snow plows may effectively clear the streets.
Residents should take all necessary steps to protect themselves and their property. This includes, but is not limited to, moving vehicles to higher ground and securing outdoor furniture and items, as the winds will be very strong. Taking outdoor Christmas decorations inside is highly recommended.
If anyone needs assistance during the storm, please contact our Police Department at 732 892 0632.
