GFS is a solid 1-3", more on Long Island maybe.

The worst part is this comes in during morning rush hour. PLAN TO WORK FROM HOME.

Hoping we get a delayed out of this for school. Last time they brought us in on a snowy morning last year 2 buses skidded off teh road and 30 teachers were late by 30 minutes plus - hopefully they will learn from t5his and not American Amnesia!! The trend is very good with this and I see about 50 mile more lean NW IMO. WHy you ask tis has been a trend with most of our coastal in teh last year

My major concern is that with a fresh dry air mass, we may loose a bit of the precip to virga. However, if the west trend continues, that won't really be an issue. To get the 2-4" storm, I would like .3-.4" qpf to start showing on the models

I thought u said 2nd event was only a small step back. This however is wow nearly nada. Not even worth ur time for a snow map if u think euro is right. I'm thinking the Sr prolly better since this within 72 hrs. Closer to 48 actually.

The 1st wave I was never enthused with. I just feel the gradient is too far S&E so we're kept out of the best lift. Couple that with 500mb energy west of the area, I don't see an impressive event here.

It looks like nothing but flurries west of the City, but it looks like 1-3" east of the city, and obviously closer to 1" west and 3" east

Personally I am not too upset of this one doesn't pan out though I'd live to have two storms back to back I'll take the one that has chance to produce way more.

Yeah it did but its still LR for the SR model, so we shall see, I am hoping as much as the bext guy, if this came much closer this could have been a big snowfall too, but as Frank said its not going to come that close.

With little QPF, sufficient amount of lifting and VV within the dendrite growth zone (mind you its about 200-300mb deep) and enough relative humidity could make for higher ratios. The 18z NAM and hi res including the RGEM did put down a not too shabby output of QPF. Take that and higher than the standard 10:1 ratio (using ~14/15:1), and you're good with a 1-3/2-4" event with more as you head closer to the coast. Atmosphere is pure saturated during the "peak" of this event as well. Maybe some surprises with this one, but again, not talking anything over 5" for NNJ lets say. Still, it's an interesting light event.

Burnt out from flip flopping model runs! Very Happy I'm hoping for just enough snow to enjoy a white birthday! I think I will see 2"-3" here in NNJ. I finally have a break from the rat race tonight, so I am going to look at the short range models... hopefully they will give us a few inches!
