Warminster Declares Winter Storm Emergency

Residents are required to remove all parked vehicles from public roadways and make room for snow plows.

Warminster Township officials have declared a weather emergency in advance of the looming snow storm approaching the area. The alert will be in effect until 1 p.m. Friday.

Latest predictions project an accumulation of four to right inches of snow beginning Thursday night into Friday morning, with temperatures dropping to the 20s and winds between 15 and 25 mph, sometimes gusting to 35 mph.

The activation of the weather emergency means that township residences are required to remove all parked vehicles from the street. Township officials also remind residents of other snow-related ordinances.

Residents must remove all snow and ice from sidewalks and fire hydrants 24 hours after the snow stops. Snow cannot be shoveled, pushed or plowed onto public roadways. Basketball courts or other objects that protrude onto the roadway must also be removed.

On Friday we'll face blowing and drifting snow and a dangerously cold wind chill, according to the National Weather Service at Mount Holly, N.J. The temperature on Friday will be about 5 below zero with the wind chill.
