You are right, and it looks to me on the loop on Accuweather the precip shield has moved south and a little west.I'm thinking that's the retrograde movement.

rb predicted:
-Snow south to the Mason Dixon (check)
- Blizzard-like conditions in some areas (check)
- Accumulating warning criteria snow north of I-78 (check - in many areas)
- Snow reaching the coastal areas (check)

For a storm where up until Wednesday night (and even Thursday morning) many were saying would be pretty much all rain, I'd say that's a good report card.

Okay settled everything I could today for the insurance BS. I've decided to start drinking now and enjoy this storm.

Here in Hopatcong visibility is down to a few hundred feet at best and the winds are howling. Heavy snow and tree limbs down everywhere. Somehow we still have power. If you stop hearing from me you know why haha.

Yeah hats off RB...I should have listened to you more and not gone to work in the first place! Can't believe how bad it got up here.

My face for the past hour pretty much matches my avatar right now

Will that be because the power went out or stupification from drinking,LOL.

Seriously, I'm happy nobody was injured and all is settled.Same up here, high winds, heavy snow!

I think you should as the deformation axis starts shifting east. Right now you are right on the periphery of it, but once it shifts overhead you should go to snow. How much accumulation, I can't say, though.

From the radar, looks a total hose job for the city. Just a no snow zone. Could it be the urban heat is just enough to keep it rain?

Yes. Great job by RV. But in most areas my map verified much better than both him and Franks. Should I post it again?

Thank you I appreciate it.
This was really one of the first times I strongly took issue with what I was seeing on the models at the surface, decided it wasn't making any sense, and really threw myself into digging deeper into what was really going on and not just defaulting to "well the models must be seeing something I'm missing, so guess they're right". With much guidance from rb, WeatherBob, sroc and borrowing from many others I've followed on here over the years (Frank, Al, Mugs and others who I'm sorry I probably have left out) I really tried to make an effort this time to dig into the upper level data and figure out what was really going on and then form my own opinion from it. While rb was really on this from the get-go so he deserves the props (and our LR guys sniffed this out awhile ago as well) it has been rewarding to dig a little deeper -- and have that digging validated to a large degree today. Even when some people I was trying to explain this to (not on here) thought I had no idea what I was talking about ("It's 60 degrees Bill and all the TV guys say its going to be rain, what are you talking about?" lol). This has been a fun ride this week.

Thanks man. Glad to hear you're cashing in as well! And no stupification YET, just easing into it with a beer Ive been saving for a couple of months here waiting for a special occasion. Founders CBS for those playing at home.

Back to the weather-- I'm going to attempt to take an accurate measurement of snow for you guys in a bit. It's going to be tough as most of doors are piled up with snow and there is drifting everywhere but I'll do my best. Right now I can tell you for sure we have cleared 10 inches of snow easily here.

I'd rather not be a party to an actual re-posting...but I will say that from what I recall of your memorable map, yeah your totals do seem to be verifying...and they were against the grain when you posted them!

Jimmy, it's that warm tongue that Mugsy posted.That's a new one on me, never saw anything like that.You usually see that along the coast or areas near the coast, but for this to happen while I have had heavy snow all day, just bewilders the crap out of me.

That map should definitely be posted again. It will serve as a great example of what the arts and crafts program at the OTI Sanitarium can produce.

WeatherBob wrote:I have to say, this is a cool storm!  Rain up north, snow down south!, snow out east, rain in the middle, Blizzard conditions out NW, winds gusting to 50 here and there, winds light to calm here and there

I totally agree, and I've been stuck in that warm zone in Essex County with nothing more than a layer of slush on my deck. I think we'll be talking about this storm for years to come. The complex dynamics, the epic battle of the NAM vs. all the other models, the odd way it's all playing with precip types in different places, the warm air intrusion screw zone (Grrrrrr). Amazing storm.
