Janus Snow Totals: Winter Storm 2014 Breaks Records In New York And New Jersey

Sno-M-G, there’s a lot of snow coming down out there! He might not have a name like Hercules, but Janus is no wimp.

Winter Storm Janus is already turning out to be one of the worst snowstorms of the season, and it’s not even over. The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast have been bombarded since snow began to fall Tuesday afternoon.

The inclement weather has forced schools and offices to close, has caused the cancellations of thousands of flights, has turned roadway upon roadway into a hazardous mess and has even broken records. According to the National Weather Service via NBC News, 6.1 inches of snow fell at LaGuardia Airport, and that beats the old record of 4.8 inches set in 2001. In New York City's Central Park, there’s been a record breaking 7.1 inches of snow -- and that put the old 6-inch record to shame. And there's been a reported 6.2 inches in Islip, N.Y., which beats the previous 5-inch record.

Additional snow is expected to fall from Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and though the current snow totals have been listed below, they are expected to grow within the next few hours, the Weather Channel wrote.
