Wow 0z NAM was a great run for me, still having trouble buying it though. Feel the shaft coming.

**EPAWA FINAL SNOW MAP, MAJOR NOR'EASTER LIKELY** Here is our final snow map. The areas located inside the red circle are under a "high volatility zone" which means we are not 100% confident for that area since short range models are going bonkers with accumulations. We will have an updated map in the morning.

Special addition/feature to the final call tonight, courtesy of Nick Reilly: we have an interactive map through google maps that you can now view to answer your "in my backyard questions" or for those that have map troubles.... click on this link (google maps) and follow the instructions below to see the snow totals right in your home town!

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=202407961812140110759.0004d52cfcf73b30e2a8f

Here is how to use the map:

1. Click on the link
2. Enter your address in the search bar
3. On the top right of the map screen, there is a drop down menu. Click on "Snow Totals" to reapply the shaded totals area. You may have to zoom out to see where your location lies on the map.

Cool feature Frank. I'm right in the middle of your 20-26 bulls eye. I saw the last NAM had me in the 40-45 range. The 20-26 if it happens will suit me just fine. I look forward to the morning update. Hope nothing changes drastically overnight.

I don't know about you guys, but I somehow smell a bust for this storm, at least in some places...

Math inevitably someone will "bust" But it looks like a bust will be getting 8-12" instead of 20-30"

I like what i see, as long as this phases, 996 low off the outer banks already and cold air poised to infiltrate, i see huge snow amounts coming

Yea, there will be major "bust" in some area. We updated the EPAWA snow map early this morning but I was unable to post it here because I have been working all day. We took out the 20-26 area and made it a 10-18, so I do think that is still attainable for our area. As for areas to the south and west though, not looking good.

Bust, an inch of snow and sleet, storm didn't come together in time, snow ending soon.

There is a wave coming from your west and it could stall out over your area once it gets there. Cause that wave will try and phase with the secondary low located offshore. So I would wait to see what the radar looks like by 11pm.

*Godzilla Blizzard, Final Snow Map, New Discussion Thread 46728_508149632570134_103427488_n

I was going to put a video together. I do not usually do videos, but for a Godzilla, I usually like to. I changed my mind since not many people in here are from the LI/SNE area. Many folks from NJ/PA and obviously they're not seeing the worst of this storm.

Anyway, this is the 18z NAM hi-res radar for later on tonight. There WILL be back-building occurring later on as this wave in eastern PA begins phasing with the secondary off the coast. Long Island is in for a very long night. I think 30-40 inches if EASY there. I have a friend in Port Jefferson LI and he is at 11 inches already.

I will be the first to admit the snowfall amounts in SNJ and SE PA are most likely to bust. The northern stream energy was just way over-modeled and the secondary offshore is not west enough to get captured and get some bands over that area. I do think CNJ, NEPA, NNJ, and NYC still have a shot for good snow. We have to see what the radar looks like around 11pm tonight. I think people will be pleasantly surprised.
