Exactly 4 inches here.  @ForestHillWx @rgwp96

Freezing drizzle now, very slick.

Roughly the same here based on spotter reports.  Don't know if it's the old piles contributing to the look, the persistent glazing since about 2PM, or both, but after cleaning it up I can say that for 4" this thing definitely outpunched its weight class.

This has been a great little storm. I've had every type of frozen precip today and it's been coming down non stop for about 12 hours now. Right now it's tiny flakes packing in super dense and laying down a squeaky carpet. I know that the radar says it isn't snowing here but it is, I love that stuff almost as much as the snowglobe heavy fat flakes snow that was faling with the sun out this afternoon.

This stretch we've been in has really given us the most "deep winter" feel in quite awhile.  This is going to be one of those Springs that really feels as though we are thawing out after the winter freeze.

Very light snow here.  Had a little light freezing drizzle or a faint mist a couple of hours ago, but it's switched back to snow now.  

Took a little walk after clearing the driveway and the exposed part of the street is definitely glazed over.  It was safer to walk in snow at the margins.

The icing going on here has made a lot of the shoveled sidewalks pretty hard to walk on. It's better to walk on the snow and slush.

Measured about 4.25" of compacted snow around 4 pm today in Lindenhurst, actual total was probably like 5 " - 5.5" right after the rippage stopped. Too bad that death band only lasted an hour. Picked up around 0.25" of sleet and a few hundredths of an inch of ice since then, so it's pretty slick out there, almost wiped out when I was going to my car before lol

Wantage NJ (the part). Only 0.4" compacted dense small flake snow since 730P. Total 1.8" (we had no accumulation during the predawn burst north of us on the 18th). That prior accumulation is attached and will be part of the 3 day event summary on Saturday. CP had no change after their 1P report yesterday (per the midnight CLI). 3.2" for the intermittent event, so far.

515A/19: Intermittent event continues and precip intensification gradually changes freezing rain/freezing drizzle sleet near I95 eastward to snow. Ending time still the same, this afternoon sometime ne PA/nw NJ/se NYS and the remainder sometime this evening-early tonight.  Between 7AM-ending time, I expect a general base 1/2" new throughout the forum after 7am with possibly as much as 3" , the heaviest seeming to be near NYC into CT per a decent band developing this morning-midday, and possibly a nice hour of closing snow this evening.  Easy melting process on pavement expected during the midday-afternoon hours where temps above 25F and when snow lessens it's intensity.  Manageable but fun for us. 

I expect scattered flurries Saturday and maybe a narrow band of accumulative snow showers leaking southeastward out of the Catskills-Poconos into the forum per the trough aloft passage with a somewhat moist unstable column.

Wantage 0.2" 4A-5A as intensity flake size has increased. 2.0 for now.  22.5F

Looks to be about another 2.5” OTG over the course of the overnight so storm total sits at around 4.5” with maybe another 1-2” today but I wouldn’t count on it given current radar presentation for at least us inland folks

4 inches + a glaze of ice yesterday..light snow falling again today. Seems like the radar might be filling in for the metro area this morning. Interesting to see how the coastal shapes up today especially along the coast.

To me it looks like the coast is going to rob the moisture, The blob seems to be moving directly east/ northeast leaving us ( city western L.I.  is stuck right between the lighter snows to our northwest.

Good morning all. It's still snowing here! I obviously slept some but not a lot and not for very long at a time and unless I missed a short no snow falling period it's 21 hours non stop now. It has been light with very small flakes since about 5pm yesterday and has been the slowest accumulating snow I've seen in a very long time, it has only built up about 1.5" since that time bringing the total to ~4.5" for the event.
