42 Photos Of The Powerful Snow Storm Clobbering The East Coast

A storm The Weather Channel dubbed Janus dumped up to a foot of snow on Tuesday and is forecast to plunge many areas into a deep freeze.

The radar looked like this Tuesday evening as a winter storm dropped snow from North Carolina to Maine.

And traffic around major cities looked like this:

The National Weather Service recorded 7.6 inches of snow in New York’s Central Park, smashing the daily record, and snow was still falling across the region.

The storm grounded thousands of flights, closed government offices in Washington, D.C., and led to several emergency declarations. Here’s a look at how the snow affected the East Coast and other parts of the country:
