Gloucester County extends Code Blue through Friday, Dec. 15

Temperatures are expected to remain in the low 20’s overnight through the rest of the week

A look at the National Weather Service forecast for the next five days shows overnight temperatures, beginning Tuesday, Dec. 12, will consistently be in the mid-to-low 20’s. Additionally, there’s a moderate chance of snow showers Wednesday night into Thursday, and again on Friday.

Given these conditions, and the criteria associated with the Code Blue Law, Gloucester County will extend the Code Blue provisions through Friday night, Dec. 15.

As a ready reference, listed below are the arrangements in place to assist the homeless and others in need of relief from the winter weather.
