The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for all of North Jersey from 6 p.m. Thursday to 1 p.m. Friday and predicts 6 to 10 inches in most North Jersey areas and blizzard-like conditions Thursday night into Friday morning with wind gusts up to 35 miles per hour and wind chills as low as 15 degrees below zero.

All Parsippany-Troy Hills schools are closed on Friday due to the weather.

    Can someone explain to me why we shutdown so quickly at the first sign of any uncomfortable weather? The schools shut down yesterday, 5 hours before any ill weather. Today, the snow stopped well in advance of first bell. This isn't South Carolina. It snows here every year deal with it.

    Because The new generation and their parents are a bunch of whiny, (ready to sue in a second if their poor little babies fall in the snow and scuff an elbow) pansies.
