Township of North Brunswick
Wednesday January 3rd, 2018 :: 03:20 p.m. EST

Winter storm to affect area Thursday (3-6 inches of snow). Bitterly cold wind chills Thursday night through Saturday

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the area tomorrow with the potential for 3 to 6 inches of snow. The start time is anticipated between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. with snow ending anywhere between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Blowing and drifting snow will be significant with strong winds, gusting between 35 and 45 miles per hour. This will make traveling very difficult as visibilities will be greatly reduced.

The wind gusts may also cause scattered power outages due to fallen trees. Please be sure to charge your cell phones and have flashlights available in the event of a power outage. To report power outages, please contact PSE&G at 1-800-436-7734.

The Township of North Brunswick advises residents to remove their vehicles off the street in order for DPW crews to clean the roadways and make it safe for the public.

Residents who live on a designated Snow Emergency street must remove their vehicle from the street. A complete list of Snow Emergency and partial Snow Emergency streets may be found at

Another big concern during and following this winter storm is the bitter cold temperatures and wind chills from Thursday night into Saturday. Temperatures will struggle to reach 15 degrees on Friday with wind chills ranging from 10 to 20 below zero Thursday night and Friday.

Please take extra precaution when venturing outdoors. Dress in layers with the outer layer of your clothing tightly woven and preferably wind resistant, to reduce body-heat loss caused by the wind. Wear a hat, as 40 percent of your body heat can be lost from your head.

Keep your skin dry. Stay out of the wind when possible. Drink plenty of fluids since hydration increases the blood’s volume, which helps prevent frostbite.

For your vehicle, check tire pressure, antifreeze levels, and heater/defroster.

Be sure to check on your elderly family members and neighbors.

Also, keep your pets warm and indoors. No matter the temperature, wind chill can threaten a pet’s life. Pets are sensitive to severe cold and are at risk for frostbite when outdoors during extreme cold.
