The snow emergency is in effect beginning at 9 p.m. Thursday and will continue until noon on Friday, Hatboro Police Chief James Gardner said.
"This declaration may be extended depending on conditions," he said.
The potential for eight inches of snow, coupled with "dangerously cold temperatures" and high winds which could create problems with blowing and drifting snow resulted in the snow emergency declaration, he said.
What to do during a snow emergency declaration
- All vehicles operated on Hatboro streets and roads must have snow-rated tires or chains.
- Parking is prohibited along designated snow emergency routes and certain streets (see attached list).
- Temporary parking restrictions may be posted on other streets as conditions warrant.
- Public works crews are able to more effectively remove snow from the streets when vehicles are not parked on the roadway.
- Residents and property owners must remove snow and ice from their sidewalks within 24 hours after the storm has ended.
- If you must travel during the pending storm, please use caution.
