So as of 9 pm we now have 4.0" of snow on the ground, which was a 1.5" per hour rate the past half hour. Pouring out there. Seriously pouring. Just made an abstract snowman,lol - great packing snow. Still 32F. Will absolutely make 5" now, but hoping for 6" of snow.

Snow slowed down a bit the last hour as we "only" got 3/4" - at 4.75" now and will easily make 5", but not sure beyond that, as the back edge is getting closer.  Great storm.

passing shirley airport - mostly snow- grass coated

passing LIE - all snow - about 1" but roads wet

passing RT25 - all snow - maybe 2" and roads covered and started to get slippery. Turned around and went back home

Rain line now collapsing south. Brooklyn should remain all snow now.

We will see what it foes but just never bought into with all the mid-level lows going south.  R/S lines also don't advance much past the barrier islands in systems where we don't see the lows track overhead or west, especially if you've laid down a solid blanket of snow and you're relying on anything below 925 to go above freezing.  We saw this on 12/5/03 and March 92 just to name a couple of cases where all the lows stayed south but models wanted to switch everyone over
