Complete and total sleetfest. The curse of March 2001 lives on.

Well that one didn't even warrant school closures here, and they closed for two days! This definitely warranted closures. So not as bad but still a bust.

If schools were open today in NYC, it would have been a disaster. Roads are a disaster and conditions are extremely bad.

So pretty much all of NYC will change back over the snow once the LP tracks NE... looks like the low is further offshore than the models depicted?

I think even if NYC changes back over, there may not be much precipitation left.  Dry slotting in central Jersey and you can see the intensity of the precip dying down in the metro.

Offshore buoys all gusting near or above 50 knots, wind backing at 44066, pressure falls on the order of 13 mb per 3h.

The center now appears to be about 986 mb located 100 nm e.s.e. ACY tracking northeast, should pass close to 44066 at about 15z. 

Link is here for this and other nearby buoys south of Long Island and east of the Hudson.

Even if the city dry slots soon, I hope the snow/sleet on the ground can survive the March sun angle and potential bump in afternoon temperatures if not precip falling. With tonights cold, this sleet on top snow should freeze into a solid block of ice, if it can. And you won't even be able to plow it off at that point.

Looks like 12" OTG. Been going back and forth between sleet and snow, with sleet winning out last 90 minutes.

Yes but it will melt out from underneath, the lower layers are all slush and the ground is warm.

It will survive, it's going to be in the upper teens tonight and NYC will near 10" of snow.
