Just went for a nice walk with the wife in the snow, doing some eating and shopping downtown. As of about 12:30 pm we had 1/2" of snow and we got another 1/4" in the last hour, so we have 3/4" on the ground at 23F. It really is gorgeous out there folks!

After the lull, moderate snow started back up about 10-15 minutes ago and we're now up to 1.0". Guessing another hour or so before the sleet gets here, assuming it moves at its current rate - that would likely put us near 2" before what would likely be a few hours of sleet. Temps up from 23F to 25F over the past 2 hours so the warm air advection is certainly ongoing.

The models were a lot warmer with the temps didn’t factor in evaporative cooling and dynamic cooling as always. Cold with moderate snow here in the Bronx at 27 degrees. 1.5 inches easily.

Hey Walt. I've never been any good at figuring out storm movement speeds and when they get to different places. When do you think that line makes it to the I684 corridor?

I find 1.5 hard to believe I’m 3 miles from the Bronx and I have 0.5 if that

Show a pic then because I’m trying to upload one and there is still grass poking through and I’m on the tallest ridge south of White Plains. 

Okay next time I go outside which will be as soon as my wife feeds the baby, I will take a picture with a measuring tape. By then it should be around 2 inches

This looks like a mainly snow event with some rain at the end for the NYC area. Temps are still in the upper 20s.

Looks nice out, but goes in the books as entirely forgettable. Started up the snow blowers to see if they still work, my 10 year old MTD from Costco ran and sounds better than the Sears Craftsman single stage which I bought last year. Maybe there wasn't enough snow for it to work well, but it was loud and ran rough. God help me if I need to change the sparkplug, you have to take the whole thing apart. I'm so sick of expensive crap that works once ( if that ) and it's done. Good luck getting anyone to honor a warranty; the list of exclusions can make you dizzy....

Anyone have totals from the NYC  area?

They should be out by 445 on the climo reports.  I expect all 4 stations to be somewhere between 0.8-1.5 as of 430

Mixed precip and/or sleet is steadily moving our way. Some dynamic cooling may offset this at times, as is the case near the PA/NJ border now.

Do you have a longer loop than this, and a link?

It's almost like the mountains are keeping the sleet on the other side.

You can already see the 3km NAM is going to bust on sleet.  It had it further east than it is by 22Z

Approaching 2” here with moderate snow falling.

 

Great storm. I think NYC can squeeze 4” out of this.
