Possible frontal wave snow

I can't speak for your specific location, but surface temps. were definitely an issue (as expected) for many locations in the area based on official and unofficial obs.  Lots of 0.2 - 0.3" QPF totals with mostly sub 32F at 925mb.

Yes true...I was speaking for my station where the LE  was less than seen further east.

Winding down in SW Suffolk.  Roads are wet with slushy patches, but I measured 2.2" on the grass.

 

Brings me to 4.4" on the season so far.  Not too bad after last year's shutout.  Here's to keeping it going and hoping the leadup to Xmas has some fun in store for us!  :santa:

The Raritan Bay effect snow was fun for about an hour this morning in Long Branch. We were at Pier Village on the boardwalk.  When it combined with the band moving from the West it dropped visibility down to about 1/3 mile and coated everything even pavement at 9 am.

North shore Long Island micro-climate shines through again.  6.2” on the year for me here in Syosset.  3.2” from this one.  

I measured 3.2" which is on the PNS from OKX.  I only expected 2" from the storm but I'm not complaining about getting more.  Liking the start to winter so far compared to last year.

I was going to ask too. Repositioning flight or legit someone just avoiding the bridges? How long would that flight be?

It's usually re-positioning aircraft.  I have seen Delta move planes from JFK to LGA on flightradar24 app.  United I think is big at EWR, so wonder if he was flying for them.  If private, that is one heck of a short flight to avoid traffic, helicopter would make more sense.

2 snow events before Christmas  is way better than last year .

We had a 6" snowstorm by this time last year. Roughly 1" total between two storms that only accumulated on colder surfaces doesn't compare, at least in my area.

Model analyses and short-term forecasts of vertical velocities are one way (RAP/HRRR especially), but they're subject to model depictions being correct.

RAP analyses are used in the SPC meso products - check out the winter weather and upper air sections for the relevant info.

The 12Z OKX sounding showed no dry air issues and had the dendritic growth zone centered near 500mb. So any parcels lifted from below into that layer will give you the better snow growth. 700mb (or likely just above this) frontogenesis is doing the trick now.

Very interesting. Thanks for the link. Will definitely gonna keep my eye on this during future storms, when DBZs aren't matching my window.

Yeah most likely.  Not bad considering it was backend after two days of rain.
