I definetely agree with those earlier mentioning power outages with the heavy wet snow. Another factor to add is that the buds are also now on the trees adding even more weight.

Yes the 6z. I think the 6z got the tightening of the NW gradient right, I just think it had the low center a bit too far east.

that's why I was concerned nws has basically an all out bluzzard including nyc 12 to 16 gusts to 45 mph. But 06z runs came in half that if even that. Let's hope it's just another model wiper. I'd live to see nws on pt that's a perfect storm

Old timer. I defer to Frank and Scott on this, but from what I can tell the storm is not two separate waves really. The first wave slows down and weakens waiting for the trailing energies to catch up to it. This firms our storm which then blows up tomorrow and moves off the Delmarva towards the BM. As far as today we will have nothing on LI. Tonight after midnight through the morning commute we get light mixed precip until the storm starts cranking

Do you still think the storm gets close enough to cause mixing issues for coasts?



Yes. The 850 temps seem to stay higher than surface at outset. This time of year that makes sense at coast with east flow. That’s why I think the NAM is more on target with the mixing early than gfs which has almost all snow. But cold air aloft should eventually crash to coast and go to snow.

WOW at Upton.
They basically have Godzilla for the area. Interesting to see the discrepancy between them and the TV mets.

Ughhhh. Simply cannot trust models more than 12 hours out. Of course you know who was warning of this south and east, flatter exit of the storm all night last evening. Now we're seeing models catch up to the idea. I'd be worried anywhere north of a line from Philly NE thru central NJ tbh for a very sharp cut off and not much more than advisory snows.

Going to be interesting just how far north this precip gets with the 1st wave and how heavy it gets. Temperatures only around 32 in CNJ and with dew points in the teens, could be quite the sleet/freezing rain event this afternoon
