Yep if there are high wind warnings for tonight and sun obviously looks worse I cannot see us not getting our 2nd warning in one week. Pretty rare.

Snow squalls will move across portions of the Northeast NJ, New
York City, and Long Island through 1030am.

While these snow squalls will be hit and miss and brief.  Visibility
may suddenly drop to near zero in localized squalls, creating
whiteout conditions and icy roads. Also, minor accumulations will
be possible.

2 separate heavy squalls have left a solid coating on everything here in Syosset.

I'll issue a final call snow map tomorrow morning. Not much will change, though I may bring the C-1" line further north, and change 4-8" to 3-6" for N&W areas. Models are kinda getting drier.

So far they are yes Frank, but look at the vertical velocities between hr 42-54 when the precip is coming in and the freezing line is moving out. There is an strong low level jet streak at this time as well enhancing the vertical motion. I have a feeling the true dynamics are not being picked up on and wont by models. This might be a true nowcast set up. Location, and timing will be everything, but I have a feeling a true thumping could still occur for many locations. GFS trended a little stronger with the pressure gradient between the HP off the coast and the LP to the north however which I dont like. Well see if Euro does the same.

For sure Scott. These type of events tend to have enhanced 700mb lift. I always say if you can smell the rain but it's 32 degrees, you'll see heavy snow accumulating quickly. I'll evaluate everything in the morning. I still like the general idea of where I placed the highest snowfall amounts.

Here is one reason I feel inclined to lessen snowfall amounts across the area. Warm air advection working its way north faster on latest guidance.

7am 6z GFS



7am 12z GFS - notice how warm air is moving in faster.

Well sorc4 if we had blocking we wouldn't have this issue so I guess we have to blame the teleconections that have sucked for the past 5 Years!!!

jroll  The teleconnections in the N Atlantic have def sucked for the past 5yrs but CPK has still managed to be above normal snow for 4 of the last five and 7 of the last 8 yrs, so not every teleconnection has sucked.  So far this month La Nina type conditions has led to a storm track that tracks to the west and unfavorable HP to our east instead of to our N or NE.

I'd argue he could put on a sing or dance performance halfway through. But he keeps it professional. Probably best.

Short range models are the coldest right now. The RGEM tried to develop a low off the coast. That's a big development, because it would prevent winds from turning easterly if true. If the GFS or EURO grab onto this idea tonight then my 1st Call Snow Map won't change.

Sunday we're looking at rain all day. Between 5-7pm, it could change to snow. Sunday looks like a crappy day

Yea I think the gradient between the High and front could cause gusts near 50mph or greater Sunday morning.
