First flakes here in the bronx. Must be snowing hard up top because the saturation happened pretty darn fast. Its 26° f with a dp of 15.

06z nam didn't have a flake till 13z In the areas getting hit hard right now . This tells me the warm layer will come in faster due to stronger warm advection. Also expect heavier totals by 17z and southern areas of NYC will see totals of 5 to 6 inches b4 sleet at 12pm.

I’m in Hamilton NJ, our winter storm warning was for 4-6”... Woke up to ~4” on the ground already and it’s still coming down pretty good... Pretty safe to assume we are going to end with 6”+

Meanwhile here north of 84 it looks like precip still getting held south by the drier air....could bust low here but we can still get to 5-6” purely by longer duration/ratios alone

Is it me or does the heavy snow just south of LI look like it’s retreating 

There doesn't seem to be much if any northward movement of the northern edge past around I80 in NJ straight across the TZ into lower Westchester. 

Does the heavier stuff abate by the time it does spread further north?

Snow just started here in Metuchen around 6:40 am with a dusting on the ground already - looks like pixie dust out there. 27F. Lots of reports of people in the Philly area with 2" already, but I hear there's sleet in areas like Glassboro - don't want to see sleet...

Started snowing lightly in Metuchen around 6:40 am and picked up around 7:00 am and we have 1/2" OTG as of 7:30 am.  Moderate snow - would like to get into some of that heavier stuff.  Temp really dropped from 27 to 23F with the snow sublimation cooling the column.
