HILLSBOROUGH, NJ  - The National Weather Service weekend forecast for New Jersey calls for varying amounts of snow, with heaviest accumulations at the shore and less snow inland. Predictions range from a dusting to upwards of 5 inches.

It is the same storm that has blanketed Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina and other southern states.

Township residents are reminded that a local ordinance prohibits parking on snow covered roads. When snow is anticipated, use off street parking as an alternative.  Vehicles are subject to summonses and the potential of being towed at the owner's expense.

It is necessary to have the streets accessible and free from vehicles parked on the side to allow for the plows to complete their work.

The above parking prohibitions shall remain in effect after the snow has ceased until the streets have been plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic.

Additionally, residents are reminded that there are motor vehicle statutes that require all snow and ice to be cleared from a vehicle before operating said vehicle on the roadway. This is to avoid flying ice and snow, which can potentially cause visibility problems for other drivers.

Snow should not be shoveled, thrown nor deposited in the roadway from sidewalks and driveways. When clearing sidewalks and driveways, please pile snow on the side of the driveway and do not throw it in the street.
