The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Northern NJ as snow accumulations are expected to reach around 6 inches of snow through the day and last until 9 p.m.
According to officials at The National Weather Service, heavier snow banding is expected in parts of the state as the fast-moving storm will accumulate snow from the Mid-Atlantic to the North-East Sunday.
NWS forecasters said snowfall rates around 1 inch per hour are possible for a period of the late morning and early afternoon. "If heavier snow banding stays south and east of these areas, snowfall amounts will fall to the lower end of the forecast range," forecasters said.
Newark Public Safety officials expect heavy snow to result in some flooding Sunday in some areas of the city.
Officials said residents are asked to observe the city’s “No Parking on Snow Covered Roads” regulations due to the expected snowfall. Signs have been posted on streets throughout the City of Newark to notify motorists of the roads designated for no parking during snowstorms.
According to Newark Public Safety officials, motorists and residents are urged to look for the sign pictured below to identify the streets where the parking ban will be enforced.
Police remind residents that tossing snow into the street is against the law, and violators will be fined.
Newark officials believe that snow, which may be heavy at times, is predicted tomorrow before 7 p.m. with anticipated accumulations of 4 to 8 inches possible and wind chill values between 5 and 10 degrees.
