Weather

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning from midnight tonight until 8 AM Thursday morning.

Snow will move into the area overnight tonight and continue through Wednesday night. It will start off slow and possibly mix with rain. Heaviest snow starts mid-morning Wednesday morning and continues through Wednesday evening. Total snow accumulation is expected to be 4 - 8 inches with locally higher amounts of 10 - 12 inches possible. Snowfall rates of 1 – 2” inches per hour are possible in the heaviest snow bands.

Winds will be 15-20 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH. This may cause blowing and drifting snow.

Temperatures will remain around 32 F.

Heavy wet snow may cause downed trees and power lines.


Parking

The "No Parking When Road is Snow Covered" ordinance will be in effect as soon as the snow is of a sufficient quantity requiring the DPW to commence plowing operations. If you live on a street covered by the ordinance, please remove your vehicle(s) prior to the arrival of the snow. If you do not have a driveway, you may use the municipal lots on Elm Place, Beechwood Place or the Public Library.
