CP, I would call it 3", but for official submission, I would say 2.75" was the highest measurement I could sign off on. A bit below what I thought we would get, but it snowed for much longer than I thought it would, and I got some of my beloved daytime snow.

For the year:

2", 1", 2.5", 2.75" = 8.25"

And fellow Seminole Quietace and I appreciate your nod to the 'Tally'.

Bill many have up here already it's the minimalist type superintendants who are non believers that wait. They gonna go with an early dismissal really?? 1 PM will be an absolute mess up here, you don't want that responsibility to go awry.
Anyway, it should an interesting day tomorrow.
Peeps remember sleet us counted as snow totals.

Yep. The only real option tomorrow would be to close. Open late and it’s when things are getting bad, close early and things are already bad. Better safe than sorry I say.

Massholes are the worst.

Bob, remember, G-dub came BACK to NJ from PA when he crossed.

And it looks like the radar just did the same. Looks like we are snowing a more steady now, but it's been about 90 min of virga so far, if it's even over. Still, WAAAY ahead of schedule, so...good sign.

I made this post on Facebook and I think it's worth repeating here:

"Wintry precipitation is on the way tomorrow. It looks like the snow will be coming into the area mid-morning tomorrow. It changes over to sleet early-mid afternoon and by evening, it is set to change to plain rain. The further north of the city you are, the more snow/sleet you will get.

Now, interestingly enough, the outcomes from the models are not too far off from what they were showing from the November 15th storm. As a refresher, that storm was predicted to change quickly to plain rain after brief snow/sleet. Instead, NYC had five hours of heavy snow, and two hours of sleet before the changeover to plain rain, causing a nightmare commute for many as the city was completely unprepared for the snow. Some vehicles, including school buses, were stranded for 10-12 hours! On the night of November 14th, models such as the 12-km NAM and 3-km NAM showed the quick changeover to plain rain with very little snow while the EURO and HRRR were showing the high end snow amounts (which came to fruition).

At the moment, those models (12-km/3-km NAM, HRRR, EURO) are developing along similar lines for tomorrow. The key differences: 1) The precipitation comes in mid-morning instead of early afternoon like the 11/15 event did. 2) The city is anticipating the wintry weather tomorrow.

Once it changes over to plain rain tomorrow evening, it should help to wash away at least some of the snow/ice and by the time it ends, temperatures in the city should be in the 40s. Some places a bit further north may not changeover to plain rain and will have quite a mess on their hands. But for NYC/LI, things should be cleared by Wednesday."

Radar shows snow overhead for the past 45 minutes. Nothing has reached the ground yet. Would be nice to get the dry air.out of the way for the main event Ina few hours.

Good post Mike. I noticed earlier that the HRRR was pretty snowy for my area. Hoping the colder solution wins out again.

Bob, for me was 45-60 min of mostly virga, with some light flurries, then about 30-45 min of light flurries with some virga mixed in, and now a steady snow for about 10 min. Still light, but getting there... Smile and again, with no rain forecast to hit till morn...

I hope things break like this for everybody tonight. With good timing, maybe we can all enjoy some heavy snow for longer and avoid the ice and slop mostly or altogether

I continue to believe the NWS is WAY too high with their forecast snowfall totals across the board, and would strongly caution everybody on this. Just my opinion, though.

They did leave themselves an out with that low end map of 1 inch or less.That was listed as "if the snow changes to sleet and rain much earlier".LOL, well THAT clarifies things.

Chester NY schools were closed at 6:30 PM last night.A good move because even if we get a later start to this at 10 AM, they would still have to get home.Looks like it will start later to me looking at that radar.

My dew point dropped another five degrees to zero the bad news is that it's already freezing rain in Philly and South Jersey that warm nose is going to be tough to keep back at 700mb. it really has nothing to stop it coming north

I’m with you rb. As I said yesterday the only way I could see it hitting some of the higher numbers they put out there was if we got an earlier start and the snow hung in longer. Don’t see it. Radar so far is consistent with where the modeling went yesterday which is to say this isn’t going to start in most places until 8 or 9. That combined with what I think will be a quick changeover to sleet makes me (as I did yesterday) question some of those higher snow totals NWS put out there.

I suppose it’s possible if the snow gets heavy quick around 9 or 10 we could get there but it will really have to dump on us for a couple hours before the sleet sets in..
