Camden County College and the Camden County Library System will close early today due to the severe weather.

Camden County College will close at 2 p.m. today. All day and evening classes and activities are cancelled at all locations. Please monitor their website and Facebook pages for updates regarding their operating schedule on Tuesday.

All branches of the Camden County Library System will close at 4 p.m. today and will remain closed tomorrow. It is anticipated that they will return to their regular operating schedule Wednesday.

“The general public should stay off the roads as this storm starts to pick up steam later on tonight into tomorrow. I can’t repeat that enough, if you can stay home please do,” said Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “Anyone on the roadways tomorrow should be prepared to encounter adverse road conditions. In addition, please be conscious of DPW trucks as they work to treat and clear our highway system. Motorists that have to be on the road should be at least six car lengths behind our vehicles while they work.”

Snow flurries will become steadier through the day as a coastal storm ramps up this evening. Overnight, the snow intensifies to a rate of an inch per hour. The current forecast is estimating totals of 6 to 10 inches across the county. Strong winds will result in lowered visibility and drifting snow. The weather system is expected to continue to impact our area through the day tomorrow before it winds down Tuesday night.
