Several police agencies and municipalities are asking residents to avoid parking on the streets Wednesday evening and Thursday morning to assist plows clearing off streets.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Ocean Counties.
Snow is expected to begin just before midnight Wednesday, with the strongest part of the storm happening during Thursday morning’s commute, said Press Meteorologist Joe Martucci. Sustained winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts 35 to 45 mph will create blowing and drifting snow.
As of early Wednesday afternoon, the following areas have issued alerts reminding residents to move their cars off the streets: Harvey Cedars, Long Beach Township, Middle Township, Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Surf City and West Wildwood.
Additionally, Ocean City and Sea Isle City are reminding residents it is prohibited to park along the Emergency Evacuation Route.
Cape May, eastern Atlantic County, and southern Ocean County are expected to receive between 5 and 9 inches of snow, Martucci said.
Western Atlantic and Cumberland counties are expected to receive between 2 and 5 inches of snow, he said.
