The second half of that forecast concerns me far more than the snow. It would be very unusual to have such a prolonged period of sleet/ice and I think that's what could end being the real story up here.

Now I know that ice forecasts generally bust in this area. Is there any indication that this storm will be any different and buck that trend?

Most of the models are pretty consistent on keeping the cold in place at the lower levels for prolonged sleet and freezing rain, so while its not common, I wouldn't be surprised if that's the way it goes. Where you are I think you will get a nice front end thump of snow, because the warm upper levels will take longer to move in there so the transition from snow to sleet (which may happen quickly for some people especially if this starts late) will take longer there.

Interesting. Well I'll take whatever I can get at this point. Thanks for the insight

I also see the morning commute being extremely impacted if the timing of this holds true. If this thing doesn't get going until 4-5 AM, you may have quite the situation on the roads if people leave for work under the impression that this will all quickly transition to rain. I'm thinking the I-80 and I-78 corridors are especially at risk here.

In a way, a later start could make this worse (thinking back to November). If we had a few hours of snow before the rush hour, many people might just stay home. But if the snow is just starting at rush hour and then changes over to prolonged sleet, many people will be on the roads already as they deteriorate. I think for most people north of I-78 the PM rush could be a mess too.

The Nam crushes NNJ with a long period of sleet after some snow... travel is going to be quite hazardous tomorrow. And ironically, North Jersey Weather Observers who I am part of had a meeting with meteorologist Jeff Berardelli scheduled for tomorrow night! Time to follow obs moving in...

Anyone have the latest NAM? Would love to see how long it forecasts the sleet to last.

Also as far as timing-- I would think we are close enough to the event at this point that we should be able to tell approximately when the precipitation will truly begin (or at least within a few hours). Any early indication on when this will ACTUALLY start based on what they are seeing on the radar as this storm takes shape?

I ask because I know there was a big discrepancy between models as far as start time, so I'm curious as to what any more experienced Mets out there are seeing as this thing sets up.

For you in Pequonneck it will be a A LOT of sleet and the rains may not come in until 8-9PM - and that is the back end of the storm with little rains. The latest EURO is much colder at the surface and at the mid levels of 850 and 700 as well as at the surface. We need to see if other guidance follows this suite the 12Z GFS was teh first to show this and then the NAM and now the EURO so a colder solution seems to be on tap - less front end snow overall but way more sleet and possible ZR as we transition into rain for NNJ peeps.

Here the progressions:

Ugh! I am starting to forget what an all snow 12 inch event is like, it's been nearly 3 months here since that occurred Nov 15th.Enough with these slop scenarios already

This would be bad.

DAY it is just showing how you hold onto the cold through the 8PM hour as Sleet adn ZR as teh surface temps are about 30* up by you.
This has evolved from a snowstorm to an ice storm basically but it wont qualify as one.

Gotcha. So I'm guessing I shouldn't be heading to work tomorrow morning. Start time still looking around 3-4 AM?

Also curious why won't this qualify as an ice storm up here? More sleet than ice?

Models are continuing to show the surface level cold air refusing to budge tomorrow. The 18z NAM doesn't bring temperatures above freezing anywhere north of I-78 until between 5 and 7 p.m. and not really north of I-80 until after 7 p.m. This would indicate that we could be in sleet (and in spots maybe a little freezing rain) for up to 8 hours (!!!). Some areas of North Jersey (especially NW) and the Hudson Valley are in freezing rain or sleet until 10 p.m. or after. The NAM continues with a late start time for NYC area (7 or 8 a.m.) with a short period of snow before the sleet storm sets in. To be honest, if we only see a couple inches of snow but then have heavy sleet for that long, I think you're still going to have noticeable sleet accumulation. Sleet does accumulate, just not as fast as snow.

Frank, right now, NYC does not appear to go to all rain until after 5 p.m.

The newest nam continues to delay the onset of precipitation for the New York City metro area until 10 a.m. tomorrow morning. It's an hour or two of snow and then sleet. We really needed this thing to move East some to get into the better Dynamics they are too far west over Pennsylvania and southern New York

Yes at this time it should start around that time frame.
I do not know the criteria for ice storm warnings but I woudl say you are close to that.

From Allan weather - and I think he nails this pretty well

Yeah mugs, that includes my area. They seem to believe the precipitation starts earlier than the NAM and that it stays snow longer before the change to sleet. That is the only way to get to those higher (4-6") totals. We shall see how this all plays out tomorrow, but it is going to be a very interesting nowcast as it happens!

I'm in the town next door to you right on the border of Hunterdon Co. I'm a little surprised they went this high. I agree though that it needs to come in earlier to even get to the low end of those projected totals.

Yeah, while the "wishcast" part of my brain wants to buy into this, it does seem a little high. The only way I see this happening is if its snowing no later than 6 a.m. and it doesn't change over to sleet until at least noon.  Right now I think 2-4" would have been a safer bet for our immediate area, but the truth is, I'm not sure anyone can predict this thing for certain. It really will just be a wait and see as tomorrow rolls around.

NWS Albany just changed my WWA to WSWarning for 6-8 inches of snow and sleet plus up to 1/4 inch of ice. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I am pretty sure surface stays below freezing for duration of event by me.

Winter storm warning for Orange County and Western Passaic County in NJ for 5-7 inches of snow followed by sleet and ice.

A bad time to be without a snow blower but I never had mine repaired after the last snow and ice storm. I may call a plow guy this time I'm not shoveling that crap again. To bad Mikey P lives in Pennsylvania.

Could be. Not looking forward to shoveling sleet.

Just a slight snow gradient here. I'm prepared for 1-6".
