Hoboken is preparing for the heavy snow, near-blizzard conditions and below zero wind chills expected the next few days.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for all of North Jersey from 6 p.m. Thursday to 1 p.m. Friday.

Vehicles parked along emergency snow routes will be ticketed and towed once streets are snow-covered, according to a statement released by the city. A map of Hoboken's snow routes can be found here.

The city will offer reduced-rate parking in municipal Garage B on 2nd Street between Hudson and River streets and Garage D at 215 Hudson St. from 8 a.m. Thursday to 8 a.m. Saturday.

Residents with valid resident parking permits or temporary parking permits can park in the garages for $5 per day during this time. City residents with disabilities or who have handicapped license plates or hang tags can park for $5 per day in the Midtown garage at 371 4th St.

Alternate side of the street parking enforcement will be suspended during and up until at least 24 hours after the storm.

The NWS predicts 6 to 10 inches in most North Jersey areas and blizzard-like conditions Thursday night into Friday morning with wind gusts up to 35 miles per hour and wind chills as low as 15 degrees below zero.

Hoboken will use the Wallace School gymnasium at 1100 Willow Ave. as a warming center from 4 p.m. Thursday until Friday afternoon.

NJ Transit will also cross-honor all tickets Thursday.
