Anyway this can trend colder and bring the jersey coast some snow or will it be just rain like it is showing?

This will turn to snow for you to Track. I’m pretty confident. How old are you by the way?

Jimmy I actually agree with you.  I am willing to bet we see surprises.  From NYC and points east on LI if you live N of the LIE you have a chance for surprise snowfall accumulations.  It will me light, but it might occur.  There is also the possibility of IVT type enhanced mesoscale convective bands set up somewhere in the area.  This may occur to our N somewhere over Ct, but these features are tough to predict.  

The key will be when does the wind shift at the surface relative to the precip.  Look at the GFS for when the precip moves in compared to the temp profiles.  






At the onset surface temps are way to warm along the coast, but Look at where the temps are just to the N of the LI Sound. They are very cold. Now notice how fast temps drop in a 6 hr period.  As the low passes S of LI the wind direction will be E off the warmer ocean, but as it passes E and centers itself just E of Cape Cod the wind direction should swing around to NE and N.  As it does it will immediately usher in that very cold air mass just to the N. They key will be how fast does it happen, and where is the precip when it does.

Global models do not have the resolution to see this potential with the temp drops.  The strength of the max is still trending and only slight shifts, 25-50 miles N or S as it swings through and how strong it is important because these features will dictate surface wind direction and timing of such.  This is why additional trends are still likely coming as there are still differences.  The area I have circled have the best chance for surprise accumulations IMO.  The twin forks and S half of LI I think will still struggle.

So Sroc you think there is no chance for the jersey coast then. Is there a chance of it being nothing then because I would rather nothing then rain

The RGEM cont to come in with a stronger vort max when compared to the global models.  This has been the trend all season thus far: stronger vort max trend inside 48hrs.  The stronger the 500mb vorticity the stronger the lifting mechanisms as it swings over head.

I think the immediate Jersey coast will struggle mightily for an accumulation, but there may be a period of "white Rain". Surface temps wont allow accumulations but the rest of the atmosphere will be cold enough to support snow as the low departs.

You have been amazing right from the beginning with this one Scott. Al, RB and Frank and mugs also saw this one coming four days before the pros. Even if it doesn't snow just the fact that it will be in the 30s on Christmas day and not the 50s or even 60s like some warmists (torch mongerers) were predicting a week ago is a huge victory.

1 to 3 inches of snow would be a nice touch for Christmas morning, that's all I'm hoping for and if I get it great, but like I said whether we do or don't just the fact that you guys were on top of this when everyone else wasn't is another feather in your caps.

I will be just happy to see snow flakes on Christmas...my son just turned 13 and I don't recall us every having any flakes fall on the 25th..so even if a flurry or two he will be excited..we talked about the possibility of it happening last night...We did have that storm in 2010 but that was the 26th... Math you can correct me if I am wrong...I just do not recall.. Very Happy  MERRY CHRISTMAS and AS ALWAYS YOU ALL DO SUCH A GREAT JOB!!

Track you gotta relax. Nothing has changed for the worse. Wetter means more qpf. West is not necessarily bad depending on the strength

NAM is colder than GFS. C-2" with 3-4" amounts N&W of NYC is my call for this system

Rain comes overnight Sunday then switches to snow early Monday morning. Most of the day Monday will be cold/dry.

No rain on Christmas. It will feel and potentially look nice.
