Yes...that's why IVT are tough to forecast. Let's see what other short range guidance shows later on.

Not everywhere. Still encased in a solid white 3 inches of sleet that isn't going anywhere courteously of that storm. I get your point though. I never went above 33 that whole storm and received 6 inches of snow and sleet and freezing rain that should have been 24 inches of snow.

I'm hoping February finally brings us something we have not had since March 2015 and that is above normal snowfall in a Month with normal or below normal temperatures. That would be a refreshing change.

This is something that always fascinated me, how I could see flurries or snow showers in the mid 40's but heavy rain at 33.Guess it's a function of how thick the warmer layer of air is close to the ground.

26.6, 83%, 29.39R, mostly cloudy ATM. Calm wind. 2 inches of sleetpack still around so at least it looks like winter up here.

Skins you have a great chance to see unexpected snow fall from the system overnight as does all of cenral to southern NJ and LI esp the S shore.  I have to get my son ready for soccer otherwise I would actually put out a snow map and a discussion.  When I'm home later this afternoon I may try to put something together if someone else hasn't.  Just look at vertical velocities through southern and central NJ.  All we need is a trigger above and we may get some thin bands of heavy snow develop for a short period.  Skins it would not surprise me if you ended up with a surprise 2-4".  iTS NOT DEF OF COURSE

Who wants to chip in on a snow maker machine on a flat bed? Doc and I could drive it around to members' home and bring some snow happiness around. It would get a lot of work around and above I-84.

Here's an update on the 3 storm threats. The SCI is updated on the homepage.

IVT: If this sets up, it will bring accumulating snow to southern and coastal NJ into Central and eastern LI. A coating to an inch is possible for the rest of NJ, including NYC Since these are largely unpredictable, I'm keeping probability low. As much as 3 to 5 inches of snow is possible if it sets up. Timing would be late tonight through 10am Monday (tomorrow).

Clipper: I downgraded chances for accumulating snow from 40 to 20%. The upper air energy is simply not digging nor strong enough to bring about a strong surface low capable of dropping a few inches of snow. We'll see how this trends today and tomorrow, but models aren't impressed. The H5 energy is literally strung out from coast to coast. If a piece was able to break off and become it's own entity we would have seen a good storm.

February 6th: this one remain out in the LR but it's clear a storm will only happen if the Pacific cooperates. A ridge out west or over the EPO domain will allow the polar energy to dig into the eastern CONUS and interact with southern stream energy to bring about a coastal low. This no longer looks like a SWFE since we're reliant on the northern energy. This no longer looks like southern stream dominant storm. The EURO flattens the PAC ridge while GFS keeps it intact to bring about a storm. Will look at this more on Tuesday.

As a betting man our 3 snow chances look a lot closer to not happening then happening. Swing and a miss. If these 3 events were forecast to be rain storms then we'd be in!!

LOL, Damian, I think you have a great idea there! Kinda like ski resorts, we could put 6 to 12 on the members property,lol.

looks like any chances of snow are way S and E of us tomorrow.
