Looks less in north west jersey, no?


Have not looked at specific LE outputs but suspect the LE will be lower in NW NJ than areas to the east and SE but ratios, on average will probably run a little higher up this way or at least get to higher ratio quicker than areas to the SE. That should somewhat counter the lower LE we likely receive. Hard to favor a jackpot area but I lean slightly to east central NJ & LI.

Its that darn CT rivery valley dry nose again...it always advects down through ERN NJ and NYC when these storms start...sometimes worse than others but you clearly can see it on radar now...the band over Monmouth Co may be enhancing it too with increased subsidence occurring north of it...won't last long though

Can someone please explain the washboard ripple look on the echoes over central coastal jersey?

 

Looks like gravity wave feature if I'm not mistaken.

I believe some of those bands were coming in from the ocean before the western precip arrived

Wow, nice. It's solid mod snow now and that band isn't quite here yet

It's because you are getting enhancement from the ocean.
