At the afternoon or morning update package the NWS will convert watches to Advisories for 2-4" with isolated amounts of 5" in the heavier bands

Perhaps they will change their minds by later this afternoon, but as of 11:30 this AM, they are still calling for 4-7.

From a group I am in on FB
"Still some uncertainties remaining, but the Euro/UKIE solution is how to succeed w/ this event on the coast. Evacuate the column, induce adiabatic expansion, cool dynamically (with a bit of help melting+evaporational - but mostly dynamic), and the boundary layer will respond. What was/is missing on the GFS is precisely the process that would cool the lower boundary layer. Mid-levels are supportive, so the contingency is sufficiently strong vertical velocities to countermand the surface warmth. The Euro holding this afternoon was slightly surprising me to be completely honest, but I think the probability of more than a couple inches has increased for the coast. We should still fall below WSW criteria (6"), but it looks like a solid event in the midst of an otherwise unpropitious synoptic." - Tom AKA isotherm. This right here is $$ and why i mentioned above about the diabatic processes/mesoscale dynamics

I'm stating the obvious here I guess, but what a difficult forecast this is. I usually have a good sense of what I THINK is going to happen by this point (not that I'm always right), but I really am at a loss here. Usually you're dealing with either how far north or south the heaviest precipitation field extends, where the rain/snow line will be, or how long it will snow before it changes over. Here we are dealing with all three uncertainties AND the possible complication of warm ground temps after several days of spring-like weather. This is a tough one. Right now I think somebody is going to get a good dump of several inches of wet snow, and my guess is a line along and north of I-78. But I'm far from confident.

The RGEM continues to have more wet than white for the coast. While the 18Z RGEM was a bit more encouraging than the prior run, it's still going over to rain for NYC and LI.

I firmly believe the N&W members will do the best in this event.

Mike I don't know what rgem you're looking at but that's 3 to 6 inches for the borough's highest amounts in the Bronx of course

updated NWS bulletin

Sussex-Warren-Carbon-Monroe-Berks-Lehigh-Northampton-
Including the cities of Newton, Washington, Jim Thorpe,
Stroudsburg, Reading, Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton
359 PM EST Fri Feb 16 2018

...WINTER STORM WATCH NOW IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON
THROUGH LATE SATURDAY NIGHT...

* WHAT...Heavy snow possible. Total snow accumulations of up to 5
 inches are possible.

* WHERE...The Lehigh Valley and Berks County, the southern Poconos
 and far northwestern New Jersey.

* WHEN...From Saturday afternoon through late Saturday night.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on difficult travel conditions.
 Significant reductions in visibility are possible. There
 remains some uncertainty with how much precipitation extends
 this far westward, however there is the potential for a short
 period of heavy snow Saturday night which could lead to a rapid
 deterioration in road conditions.

now we wait and see i guess

I said i wouldnt post about this threat till Friday evening cause im so disgusted with this pattern so here it is. Two things give me confidence. One is that Frank is in on this storm which says a lot. Secondly the NWS which is VERY CONSERVATIVE is bullish about it as well.

As far as the spring like weather goes Bill, the temp is dropping fast right now. 10 degrees in 2 hours. we are going down to the mid 20s tonight and only 35 or so tomorrow. the ground will be frozen solid. The precip comes in at night. I think we are good. Then it will all melt in 24 hours and we go back to torch.

This low pressure system initially was developing today in SW
Pacific and this will have tracked through South Central US
through Tennessee Saturday. From there, it heads ENE into the
Mid-Atlantic Saturday evening and then deepens off the coast of
the Delmarva by late Saturday night. It takes a track to the SE
of the 40N/70W benchmark with boundary layer temperatures and
the magnitude of deepening of the low crucial to the amounts of
snow. The deeper the low, the more dynamic cooling there will be
and this goes with the intensity of the snow as well. It`s a
positive feedback loop, heavier snow would also force colder air
to the surface. The timing of this event Saturday night leans
more towards a colder solution compared if this were to occur
during the day.

Models have trended a little farther south with the low pressure
center and without a large pressure gradient between the
departing high and the approaching low, lowered snow amounts by
around an inch. Also on this side of a slight decrease will be
marginal boundary layer conditions at onset of snow. The
temperatures will be slightly above freezing and unless the snow
is quite intense, it will take an hour or so to decrease the
surface temperature to wet bulb temperature. So for first 1-2
hours, snow may not accumulate much. Looking at a general 9pm to
3am timeframe for much of the snow to fall.

Still see potential for banding with the snow with 1 inch per
hour snowfall amounts possible, so 4-6 inch snow amounts
forecast but with locally higher amounts possible. Where this
streak of higher amounts occurs is quite uncertain at this time
and that is why the winter storm watch was maintained and it
can`t be ruled out over Orange and Putnam New York, so watch was
expanded to those counties as well. Some higher snow
accumulation in the 6 to 8 inch range was shown in the latest
SREF but there are members on the lower end showing a few inches
as well. Snow rapidly trends down from west to east early
Sunday.
