The central New Jersey area may receive a few inches of snow tomorrow.
We're in for snow this weekend, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), which has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Saturday for central and northern New Jersey. They are predicting snowfall starting here by mid-morning and continuing to as late as 7 pm, which they say may dump up from 2 to 4 inches in the area. A winter weather advisory means that the snow may cause travel problems, particularly on bridges and overpasses, which tend to ice up before regular road surfaces. Temperatures should be from the upper 20s to below freezing, the NWS advised, with visibility reduced to about half a mile at times during the snowfall.

The ordinance passed with a 3-0 vote Monday.
Residents and business owners will now be required to remove snow from sidewalks in front of their property within 48 hours of the end of a snowfall, according to Cranbury committee member Jay Taylor. The Cranbury Township Committee adopted the ordinance with a 3-0 vote, which also allows Cranbury police officers to ask those who have not cleared sidewalks to do so. People who do not comply will not face a fine, according to the committee. "We've had a need for an ordinance like this for awhile," said committee member Glenn Johnson, citing a story he was told by a resident whose son was almost hit by a vehicle, because he was forced to walk in the street due to snow not removed from a sidewalk. "Unless we have something on the books, we're…

A new measure could dictate residents' responsibilities once winter hits.
While many people’s thoughts turn to summer, the Cranbury Township Committee injected a shot of cold into this week’s committee meeting. Snow removal was a topic of discussion Monday as Committeeman Jay Taylor introduced the issue, noting the township does not have a snow ordinance on its books. Taylor said a number of residents in town sent letters and emails asking the committee to consider a snow ordinance that would have two components, one pertaining to snow removal on sidewalks and a second addressing the creation of a snow route for vehicles on Main Street. During the work session, committee members and residents raised many questions, not about adopting an ordinance, but how it would work. Those questions included how long it would…
