BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - After one of the coldest Februaries in history, March appears to be offering much of the same winter weather.  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for 10 a.m. Sunday through 4 a.m. Monday morning. The storm is forecasted to drop 1-4 inches of snow with a period of icing Sunday night into Monday morning. 
.
Sunday brings a familiar story for us: Snow is forecast statewide for Sunday afternoon, with a wintry mix in the overnight hours and snow again Monday morning. Precipitation will change to rain between 8 a.m. and noon for most places. Warren will see mostly snow, and southern counties may have mostly rain after 1 a.m. Monday. Temps will be in the 20’s and lower 30’s statewide. Roadways and untreated surfaces may create slick roads and sidewalks Sunday and Monday.

Police ask drivers to remember, "Four-wheel drive helps you drive, not stop. Please drive slow and keep your distance between the car in front of you. Stay safe "

I- 78 and I-287 will be impacted along with local roads. Bridges and overpasses are the first to ice over. If driving, reduce speed and allow extra time to reach your destination.

If you do have to go out on the roads, bring emergency supplies and a fully charged mobile phone.

If you lose power, contact your local power provider and not Police Communications unless an emergency exists:

PSE&G: 800-436-7734
JCP&L: 888-544-4877

Treat all downed power lines as if they are still live. Do not approach or touch any downed line. It is encouraged to charge all cell phones and have extra batteries in the event you lose power.

Please help the Department of Public Works with snow removal by removing your vehicle from the side of the road. Do not push snow from your driveway back onto the street. Do not call 9-1-1 about snow removal from your street.

After the storm, remember to clear all snow and ice for your vehicle, sidewalks and fire hydrants.
