ORIGINAL, 5pm Jan. 20:

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Midland Park area beginning noon on Tuesday to 6am Wednesday. The Weather Channel has named the storm Janus.
According to NWS, the storm brings heavy snow with accumulations predicted between 6 and 10 inches and wind chills as low as -10 late Tuesday night and temperatures in the teens. Visibility of one-quarter of a mile or less at times. Snowfall will begin late Tuesday morning and will continue through Tuesday night, tapering off early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfall will occur Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Falling, blowing and drifting snow will cause hazardous travel and walking conditions across the area, possibly impacting the afternoon and evening commute. Extreme cold and low wind chills could cause frost bite.
A winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Only travel in an emergency and if you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of emergency.
Please remember to dig out the fire hydrants in your neighborhood. The home you save could be your own. State law requires you to remove all snow from your vehicle before driving.
