This is one the most intense bands I've ever been in. Lost power for 5 minutes.

Conditions are treacherous.

Upton wake up.

Too late now. Updated WSW  right now. Says 8-12 total.

Yeah it won't make it here. Still been pretty heavy though.

Some of the bands have hit me but not as bad as to the immediate ( and I mean immediate ) east, but I think we are good for the 4-8 forecast. We gotta be close to 4 or more now.

Places like Carteret (extreme eastern NJ) that border SI will do way better than other parts of Middlessex.

Definitely a lull now here but hopefully it’s short lived. Looks like a band from Suffolk might push in soon. 

Ya I think we are in a good spot.  More bands rotating in off the ocean and the deform will eventually rotate through as the storm pulls east.  Slight lull here in Lindenhurst now (still mod snow and intense wind), but I think we have plenty of action left!  Just awesome!  Definitely not taking this for granted.

Carteret is next town north of me; we usually have about the same but in this crazy storm they are doing a little better..

I can tell you we are probably at 6.0" or a little better here now, been getting hit very hard by these heavy bands.

Holy crap! All hell broke loose in the last five minutes. I can no longer see across the Major Deegan (my windows face it). I also had a house shaking gust of wind. I have dust flying out from underneath my moldings and walls and snow coming in through the walls. Might have more to do with the fact that I live in a 120 year old townhouse, but still, never had wind like this before!

Just to put it into perspective, I live about 35 miles NW of you and I might have 2" on the ground.

Window rattling winds, haven't had that during a winter storm since boxing day. Absolutely ripping.

It will get worse. Band moving on top of you in the next 20 minutes or so.

Here in Brooklyn - Bensonhurst 66th St and 17th Ave - white out condition with heavy snow and very strong gusting winds. Temp around 22 degrees. This is the worst of the storm so far . Reminiscent of the Boxing Day storm. Won't go out to clear snow until conditions get better.

Have only had light to moderate snow here for the last hour, sounds like you are doing quiet a bit better!

I expect the same throughout counties north of Middlessex as well. Port Elizabeth will do way better than Plainfield, Springfield, Union Twp, and Scotch Plains, classical divider.

No shot. Look at their radar. 

 

JFK has shut down.

Boston and E MA has its coastal front convergence area that enhances snow often in storms like these. But you can see west of that breaks are appearing outside of the main deform band. Some weenies in E CT and central MA might get relatively jipped.
