Must read

HOBOKEN, NJ — A new forecast for the impending winter storm calls for as much as 4-8 inches of snow on Tuesday morning. A winter storm watch runs from 4 a.m. on Tuesday through 6 p.m. the same day.

The city of Hoboken issued guidance on Monday afternoon, saying they’ll suspend street sweeping on Tuesday and prohibiting parking on emergency routes.

The following is the city’s announcement:

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Hudson County including Hoboken from late tonight into tomorrow afternoon. Heavy snow is possible with total accumulations of 5 to 8 inches possible. Total accumulations will be dependent on when rain turns to snow, which the NWS predicts will be around daybreak tomorrow. Winds could gust as high as 40 miles per hour.

“The City of Hoboken is actively preparing for a substantial snowstorm tomorrow,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “Due to the forecast, I strongly encourage residents to exercise caution and limit travel, if at all possible, especially during the Tuesday commuting times. Thank you in advance to all of our emergency personnel who will be working around the clock to keep everyone safe.”

Parking to be prohibited on Emergency Snow Routes early Tuesday morning.

Snow emergency routes will be enforced as early as 6 a.m. tomorrow and are dependent on snow accumulation. Vehicles parked on snow emergency routes, when the streets are snow covered, are subject to ticketing and towing. This is necessary to allow emergency vehicles to move throughout Hoboken for the safety and welfare of all residents.

Emergency snow routes in Hoboken are labeled with street signs that read “No Parking When Road Is Snow Covered.” A map of emergency snow routes is available on the City website:

  • 4th Street – South Side – River St. to Jackson St.
  • Willow Avenue West Side – Observer Hwy. to 11th St. (County Road)
  • 3rd Street – North Side – Jackson St. to River St.
  • 9th Street – North Side – Jackson St. to Castle Point Ter.
  • 5th Street- South Side – Clinton St. to River St.
  • Washington Street (Both Sides)
  • Observer Highway – (Both Sides) Henderson St. to Hudson St. (County Road)
  • 13th Street – North Side – Washington St. to Madison St.
  • 13th Street – South Side – Washington St. to Hudson St.

Snow emergency routes will remain in place until after the snowfall ceases, and the streets are plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic.
