The new NAM is a complete torch. It has less than an inch of snow total, all the way up here in Rockland county. The boundary layer got even warmer than it had at 12z and the midlevels torch before the precip even starts. This may be a brief period of sleet at the onset to all rain

likely overdone but i agree the midlevel torch will be ferocious and move quickly north and west

The new RGEM looks similar….this is quickly looking like a total non event south of 84, and it’s really borderline even up there

...COASTAL FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH
MONDAY AFTERNOON...

* WHAT...Two to three feet of inundation above ground level
  possible in vulnerable areas near the waterfront and shoreline.

* WHERE...In Connecticut, Southern Fairfield, Southern New
  Haven, Southern Middlesex and Southern New London Counties. In
  New York, Southern Westchester, Bronx, Northwest Suffolk,
  Northern Queens and Northern Nassau Counties.

* WHEN...From late Sunday night through Monday afternoon.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Widespread moderate flooding of
  vulnerable areas is possible near the waterfront and shoreline,
  including roads, parking lots, parks, lawns, and homes and
  businesses with basements near the waterfront. Several road
  closures are possible, and vehicles parked in vulnerable areas
  near the waterfront may become flooded. Flooding will also
  extend inland from the waterfront along tidal rivers and bays.

* SHORELINE IMPACTS...Breaking waves of 4 to 6 ft will result in
  beach erosion, wave splashover onto shoreline streets and
  properties, and minor damage possible to shorefront structures.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...There is potential for locally major
  flooding (3 ft above ground level) for southern Westchester and
  coastal southwestern Connecticut if strong easterly winds and
  high waves continue through the time of high tide Monday
  morning. The higher probability at this time is that winds
  weaken and shift to the south before high tide, which would
  reduce wave action and likely keep flooding at moderate flood
  levels (2 to 2 1/2 ft above ground).

Damaging winds and major coastal flooding is hardly a non event. Plus with the ground frozen rock solid any heavy rain will quickly run of leading to potential flooding.

I’m heading to Vermont anyway

In fairness I think he's talking snow.    But it is surprising the media hasn't hit the wind/flooding issues that will exist here.

All they care about is snow. Wind and coastal flooding events generally do not receive much coverage until after the fact. 

During Ida, the only local network that offered continuous coverage that evening was News 12 New Jersey.  The local CBS, NBC and ABC affiliates only covered it on their scheduled newscasts.

I posted what the pros at the NWS expect along and north of 84. Maybe you should give them a call and let them know your thinking. BTW 3-4 inches of snow plus sleet and ZR with strong winds is not a non event. Let me know what they say and when they are going to change their forecast after speaking to you.

You can see why the models have such strong wind gusts. The NAM forecast soundings have winds over 70 mph just a few hundred feet above the surface near the coast. Even stronger winds above that.

This might be the first high impact wind event here in a while

The amount of trees we’ve lost around here dating back to the march 2010 noreaster to present day is pretty crazy, I remember there being much more trees in my neighborhood when i was a kid in the early 2000s

We just get so many damaging wind events now it’s become…almost normal. Besides the fact I’ve lost these 5 trees, I had one destroy everything in my backyard and also hit my garage. That was from a downburst in July of 2010. Then I had another tree hit my house in August of 2019 during a severe thunderstorm, put a hole in my roof and then destroy my porch. So, understandably I’d say, I get a little anxious during these kinds of things.

I wouldn't take it so personally. Opinions and personal best guesses are fair game here. 

I also feel it's going to be a tall order to verify Albany's current map for those of us in the valley. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Did you even bother reading my post? Like seriously did you read it at all. I said “SOUTH of 84”, SOUTH, SOUTH, SOUTH, did you see it that time???

He posts the same bullshit for every storm. It's annoying and I'm not taking it personally.

I saw 84, my bad. I'll put you back on ignore and save us both the headache. It's still not a non event whether it's rain, mix, or snow. It will still have an impact especially with that wind potential.

Maybe, maybe not. 3 hours of heavy snow could give us that total. I guess we will see how it plays out.
