Potential for Winter Storm Next Sunday-Tuesday

The National Weather Service is currently monitoring an increasing threat for a significant and potentially prolonged coastal storm system to impact the region late this weekend into next week. Precipitation could arrive as early as Sunday around midday into the afternoon and will likely start as snow for most areas. Snow and rain, potentially heavy at times, are likely to affect the region Monday along with strong northeast winds.

The storm may linger into Tuesday but should be easing in intensity before moving out by Tuesday night. The rain/snow line may shift back to the south and east into Tuesday on the back side of the storm as it starts to pull away.

Please monitor our social media accounts and website, www.hamiltonnj.com, for any weather related updates.

Governor Phil Murphy announced today that the State is extending the health insurance enrollment period for uninsured residents to sign up for coverage through Get Covered New Jersey, the state’s official health insurance marketplace, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The coverage effective dates will be as follows:

  • Enroll by February 28, coverage effective March 1;

  • Enroll by March 31, coverage effective April 1;

  • Enroll by April 30, coverage effective May 1;

  • Enroll by May 15, coverage effective June 1.
