Too bad it’s an outlier 

You're extremely annoying. How is the NAM an outlier when the 3k, rgem, Euro & Canadian show minor accumulations N&W of the city?

The next 8 days are averaging 48.5* or 3degs. AN.

Month to date is  +8.1[49.0].        Should be +6.7[48.8] by the 30th.       

The first week  of April is averaging about +2[51].         The 18Z GFS run is back up to +7[56].

38* at 6am.       37* at 7am.      36* by 9am.         44* by 1pm.         39* by 9pm.

Morning thoughts...

The NAM (area of excessive snowfall) and GFS (least snowfall) continue to be outliers with a late-season winter system. The 6z NAM has shifted the area of heaviest snow northward relative to the 0z run. New York City, Newark, and Philadelphia will likely see little or no snow. An area running from northeastern Pennsylvania across central New York State into central New England should pick up 3"-6" snow with some locally higher amounts.
My thinking for select sites is as follows:

Albany: 3"-6"
Binghamton: 3"-6"
Boston: 1" or less
Poughkeepsie: 1"-3"
Scranton: 1"-3"
Worcester: 3"-6"

Yep it caved, this is the one winter (I know it's not technically still winter) where literally every single storm has trended worse closer to the event. Still might see some wet flakes in the air briefly tomorrow morning

Looks reasonable, I am not even sure Poughkeepsie will get 1-3 now that the models show a more quicker mid level warming than before but should be a frozen mess in the HV for part of the day tomorrow

summarily I don't know if the winter storm watches BGM issued here will stick...they were aiming them more for higher elevations but if the warming comes in quicker then all will lose.

The 80 on Friday was probably the warmest of the month. MJO 2-3 and -NAO should keep the warmest temperatures to our south. The interior continues to be the place to be for snows like we seen the last few winters.

Huge mid-level warm push on all models now. The new HREF run has nothing at all for snow accumulations south of 84 and it cut back amounts even north of 84. The boundary layer is warmer as well. NAM was way too cold once again. This is nothing more than a white rain event for most of the metro area

The NAM caved to the warmer guidance. It was a cold outlier all along. You do know what an outlier is right?

Yea City may be all rain, NW Suburbs are white rain to rain, north of I84 may see some accumulation but probably not much in lower elevations

Good Call again although in this winter (if we call it that?) predicting it to trend warmer is pretty much the easy call.

Catskills still look like a good spot for this, could be very elevation dependent event.

It's going to be 100%. Lower elevations probably 3-5 *if* it can stick well given late March sun/mixing; elevations >1500 feet will do best with probable 5-8.

Would probably need to be near Albany to have any chance at 3-5 in lower elevations, anywhere in this subforum would be 1-3 at best

I don't think this was necessary needed because all models are shirking away from heavier snows. Still largely elevation dependent.

Agreed, the new Euro is basically a total non event until north of 84

It absolutely is needed. 5-9 inches of heavy snow can cause problems and it is heavily elevation dependent like the warning says. I'm 20 miles north of 84 in valley and expecting no more than 2 inches. 3-4 inches possible as you get closer to Albany.

Most of the models are still showing heavy snow especially for the western catskills, think the warning is legit

I get that, was simply pointing out how models seem to be distancing themsleves away from that idea. Like you I'm 20-30 miles north of 84 (at ~800) and am also only expecting 2-3" before likely mixing  (or even a full changeover, which looks likelier) cuts down totals. MSV north looks good.

Largely elevation dependent, but yeah, same points as provided before. They have their reasons and I respect them.

I agree. Anyone above 1000' and N of 84 should see good snows. Here at 850' & 1 mile N of 84 im expecting 1-3"

Don't look at the weenie maps if you live NW of I287 for Wednesday on the Euro lol, we'll see how long until it caves

Bogus. It’s the same thing it’s been doing at day 4-5 over and over, like this coming storm.  It was showing a foot of snow in Rockland County tomorrow

NAM is 1-2 inches for the HV, doesn't even give the catskills that much, looks like Adirondacks and part of NE do well.

Storm 2 will be extremely dynamic dependent, no cold air in place, the Euro and to some extent the CMC are hinting at dynamics flipping rain to snow in the interior but we know the trend this winter is for models to overestimate storm strength/dynamic cooling in the medium range

It's looking like snowfall amounts in the vicinity of I-84 will likely need to be trimmed.

How many times does no cold air in place with rain to start out flip over to snow and accumulate in the middle of winter work out in our area, let alone a weak storm during the day at the end of March? Good luck

Depends what you are referring to as our area, it definitely happens for the interior zones. I would lean that it's rain to slop for the interior areas so I agree I wouldn't expect an accumulating snow event for lower elevations in the subforum from either event at this point

Cooler air remains in place. Late tomorrow into early Tuesday, a storm will track eastward. As a result, parts of the region, especially an area running from central Pennsylvania across northwestern New Jersey, across central New York State into southern New England, will likely receive a snowfall. Parts of that area will likely pick up 3"-6" snow with some locally higher amounts.

Final snowfall estimates:

Albany: 3"-6"
Binghamton: 2"-4"
Boston: 1" or less
Poughkeepsie: 2" or less
Scranton: 2" or less
Worcester: 3"-6"

Little or no snow is likely in New York City, Newark, and Philadelphia. Afterward, the closing days of the month will likely be warmer than normal.

Based on the historic data, no significant snowfalls (6" or more) are likely in the major Middle Atlantic cities (Baltimore, New York City, Newark, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC) and Boston through the remainder of the 2019-2020 snow season. It is possible that at least some of those cities have seen their last snowfall of winter 2019-2020.

As a result, New York City will very likely finish winter 2019-2020 with less than 10" snow for the first time since winter 2011-2012 and for only the 10th time on record. Snowfall records go back to winter 1868-1869 (when 25.5" fell from January-March 1869).

The ENSO Region 1+2 anomaly was +0.3°C and the Region 3.4 anomaly was +0.5°C for the week centered around March 11. For the past six weeks, the ENSO Region 1+2 anomaly has averaged +0.60°C and the ENSO Region 3.4 anomaly has averaged +0.40°C. Neutral ENSO conditions will likely prevail through March.

The SOI was -6.51 today.

Today, the preliminary Arctic Oscillation (AO) figure was +3.416.

A "final warming" stratospheric seasonal event will likely begin to develop during the last week of March.

On March 21, the MJO was in Phase 2 at an amplitude of 1.680 (RMM). The March 20-adjusted amplitude was 1.725.

A sizable majority (>80%) of years during which the AO has been, on average, strongly positive during the first 15 days of February were followed by a warmer than normal March. The preliminary February 1-15 AO average was +2.758. Only 1989 (+3.336) and 1990 (+2.948) had higher AO averages during this period. Recent rapid warming in ENSO Region 1+2 has also typically preceded a warmer than normal March and spring in the Middle Atlantic region. A warmer than normal March and spring remain the base case.

February 2020 saw the ENSO Region 1+2 anomaly increase by more than 0.50°C. Such a development has typically occurred before a warmer than normal summer. In all such cases, a warmer than normal spring was followed by a warmer than normal summer. Therefore, a warmer than normal summer is currently more likely than not. Should Spring wind up warmer than normal, a warm or even hot summer will be very likely.

Based on sensitivity analysis applied to the latest guidance, there is an implied near 100% probability that New York City will have a warmer than normal March. There is an implied 80% probability that March 2020 will rank among the 10 warmest March cases on record. March will likely finish with a monthly mean temperature near 48.2°, which would rank as the 6th warmest March on record. 

Finally, in most cases following strong AO+ February and March periods, ridging is present in the East during April. Such an outcome would favor a warmer than normal April in much of the East. The CFSv2 has been shifting in that direction in recent days.
