Snow, Extreme Cold Headed to Hoboken

A winter storm warning has been issued for Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday with as much as 10 inches of snow possible.

Nearly a foot of snow and frigid temperatures are headed to Hoboken.

A winter storm warning has been issued for all of North Jersey with as much as 10 inches of snow possible by Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Hoboken released a Nixle alert Monday afternoon, reminding residents cars parked on snow routes while roadways are covered could be towed. Snow routes for emergency vehicles are labeled with street signs that read: "No Parking When Road is Snow Covered." A list and a map of the emergency snow routes can be found on the city's website.

The city is also providing discounted parking in several municipal garages. Garage B on 2nd Street between Hudson and River streets and Garage D at 215 Hudson St. will be available from 8 a.m. Tuesday to 8 a.m. Wednesday for $5 per day for residents with valid parking permits or temporary placards. Residents with disabilities who have handicapped license plates or hang tags can park for the same rate in the Midtown Garage at 371 4th St.

The winter storm warning is in effect from noon Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday with snow starting Tuesday morning and intensifying in the afternoon and evening hours, the NWS said.

The storm will bring more extreme cold weather with wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour, making it feel as low as 10-below zero during the overnight hours Tuesday, the NWS said.

Temperatures are not expected to get out of the teens on Tuesday and Wednesday with lows in the single digits before slowly warming up to the low 20s by the end of the week.

Hoboken property owners must also clear all sidewalks near the property as well as wheelchair ramps and curb cuts within six hours after the completion of the storm, the city's Nixle alert said.
