SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – A fast moving winter storm dropped approximately four inches of snow in South Plainfield today. Snow accumulations estimates continued to increase throughout the day as the pesky storm lingered into the early evening hours.

The Borough of South Plainfield issued a number of Nixle alerts and a reverse phone call asking residents that live on emergency snow routes to remove their vehicles from the road. A number of high school sporting events were canceled and the South Plainfield Police Athletic League building closed at 5:00pm.

“The Department of Public Works has been out salting roads throughout the day, and we will be plowing and salting throughout the night,” said South Plainfield Mayor Matthew P. Anesh. “Residents should use caution when driving and refrain from parking on roadways when possible.”

According to the National Weather Service, temperatures are expected to fall into the mid-teens by the early morning hours. All precipitation is expected to remain frozen as temperatures are forecast to remain below freezing until at least Tuesday.
