Hoboken Schools Closed Today- March 2, 2009

The National Weather Service said that the heaviest snowfall for the Hoboken/New York region swept across the area between 7 and 8 a.m. on Monday prompting the closure of all Hoboken Public Schools. Many areas then saw a two or three hour lull in the storm, but the snowfall resumed in late morning and was expected to drop at least another three inches across the Tri-state area. By the evening, total accumulations were predicted to reach as high as 10 inches in the city and 14 inches on Long Island and parts of Connecticut. Wind gusts could reach up to 35 miles per hour, which would classify the storm as a northeaster, meteorologists said.
