3/13/2017 - UPDATED - Weather Advisory for Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Weather Advisory for Tuesday, March 14, 2017


Beginning late Monday evening and continuing through Tuesday afternoon, forecast models indicate with high confidence that Winter Storm Stella will likely produce between 16 – 20 inches of snow for our area.  If sleet mixes in with the snow, final accumulations could be slightly reduced.

High winds, including wind gusts between 30 – 45 mph are expected.  


Prepare for Possible Power Outages

Due to the expected high winds, be prepared for power outages:


  • Report Power Outages or Downed Powerlines to PSE&G:






Please Move Vehicles Off Road

·        We are asking residents to voluntarily NOT park along road curbsides (please move vehicles into driveways or onto properties, if possible) until plowing operations have been completed

o   Please note some roads (marked with signage) specifically prohibit parking during snowfall


Snow Plowing Expectations 

·         The plowing of neighborhood roads will not begin until after snowfall ends and until primary roads are clear


·         Neighborhood roads will NOT be down to asphalt following plowing (plowing efforts intend to make neighborhood roads passable for motor vehicles)  


·         This storm will produce significant snow accumulation that is heavy and will be difficult to plow.  Residents should expect the plowing of neighborhood roads to continue throughout Wednesday (i.e. into the evening).
