Are you kidding me? Using the Kuchera ratio for a storm like this where ratios are poor because of the strongs winds aloft alone?

It's also counting some of the snow that will melt as accumulation.

Even up here, there is some rain mixing in still occasionally.

I still have the occasional burst of pellets mixing in but it's nearly all wind driven snow and it's piling up in a hurry. Looks like the temp is hovering right at freezing around the whole area. 

Alright heading out now for a fun 85 mile round trip over the top of the Taconics and up to the north side of Poughkeepsie.

NJ 23 is a mess. Have not heard a single plow truck.

 

 

I don't think anyone thought the snow would be accumulating this quickly.  NWS had forecast 2-4 inches in the valleys and 6-12 over higher elevations.  I am only at 650 feet so this is a big surprise to me.

Yeah at 6:30 this morning I noticed the sleet pounding against my window. My Wife, who works in Yonkers decided she wasn't going to risk it, and I would say at around 7:45 we changed over to a very heavy, wet snow.

I work in Montclair and also stayed home. (Although I see now on Twitter that it’s snowing there too.)

Still raining up your way?

Flipping back and forth from rain to snow. Right now mostly rain. 

Whats amazing is that its pretty much snowing all around me and at lower elevations.
