(Lindenwold, NJ) – As snow continues to blanket the region, all Camden County offices, libraries and Camden County Community College are all closed today.
Snow began falling in the early morning hours and has recently turned moderate with some briefly heavy pockets. While treated surfaces have been holding up this morning, pavements can be covered and may require some shoveling. A bulk of the accumulation will fall through the midafternoon hours with 3 to 5 inches expected. Snow turns lighter in the late afternoon, tapers to showers after sunset and ends this evening. Temperatures will still plummet overnight, so any wet or slushy surfaces will freeze up.
“We have closed all of our offices ,” Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the DPW. “We are clearing snow and treating roads to avoid any dangerous buildup of snow or ice. We are recommending that residents stay home and off the roads due to potentially slick conditions but if you must travel, just do so carefully.”
