City of East Orange Issues Winter Weather Advisory for January 28-29, 2022

Urges Residents to Exercise Caution and Adhere to All No Parking Rules 

East Orange, NJ, January 28, 2022: Mayor Ted R. Green and the East Orange City Council have issued a winter weather and parking advisory for the City of East Orange for Friday, January 28, 2022 and Saturday, January 29, 2022.


According to the latest National Weather Service forecast, a winter Nor’easter is expected to bring snow fall in the East Orange region on Friday, continuing through Saturday afternoon, with snow expected to accumulate as high as 18 inches.


In addition to snow, strong winds of up to 50 miles per hour are expected to impact the area. City officials are encouraging residents to exercise extreme caution when traveling and to adhere to all snow parking regulations. 


Parking and Snow Removal: All snow emergency parking rules are in effect. Motorists should adhere to all NO PARKING WHEN ROAD IS SNOW COVERED signs on county and city roads. Overnight parking rules will be strictly enforced. Illegally parked vehicles will be ticketed and towed.


As the storm progresses, residents are asked NOT to shovel snow into the street. Residents and business owners are encouraged to remove snow from fire hydrants located in front of their residences or businesses. Plowing will begin when snow depths reach two inches and freezing temperatures indicate no melting.  


The only way to avoid additional snow removal is to wait until DPW work crews have completed their final clean-up of your road.

  • Most streets will require three or four passes
  • Some streets may require as few as two passes, or, as many as five passes
