Wednesday's weather is expected to bring a wintry mix, but not nearly as much snow as the Jan. 13 storm, pictured here.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for our area in effect from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday. Residents and visitors are advised to closely monitor weather forecasts and conditions during this period. 

The latest forecast calls for 1 to 3 inches of snow accumulation before the precipitation turns to rain on Wednesday evening.

Travel conditions could be hazardous, roads slippery and visibility limited for both the morning and evening commutes. Please be advised that West Avenue is an emergency route and parking is prohibited on both sides of the street when the road is covered by snow.

Forecasts predict a water level of 5.2 feet (MLW) for the high tide at 8:33 a.m. Wednesday. That falls just below the NWS threshold for minor flooding, but residents should be prepared to move vehicles if conditions change.

For Police and Fire Department emergencies, call 911. For non-emergencies, call 609-399-9111 or 609-399-6111.
