Very cold storm, I think 7-8" near New Brunswick seems reasonable

I don't see how we get there, really. Is it doing much by you ? It's really anemic here in Woodbridge. Visibility is good. Just went to Shop Rite. People are out shopping. Gotta be careful but not really a big deal here. Great for the snow plow contractors. Haven't seen a municipal plow yet today.

We definitely have quite a bit more than 4 considering the size of the drifts. At least 6. Measuring is very difficult obviously. I actually have us close to 7 now but it's tough to be exact. RU848789 is in Metuchen (not too far away) and he is excellent at measuring, and reported 6 and a quarter inches a couple hours ago. So I think I'm pretty close with the near 7 measurement I had a little while ago. Too bad we missed the much bigger amounts, but this is still a very nice warning level storm for our area. We have a couple more hours of snow to go too.

It's a decent event for the area, no question. But just couldn't get those sick bands to back over us. A couple hours of that and we'd have been in the 12 range. As it is it seemed to peter out around 6 am and never really got going again. The wind is also beating up the dendrites no?

8 inches in Great Kills Staten Island.

10 minutes east of me. 2 inch difference. That's how these storms go sometimes. But the difference between 6-8 isn't worth losing sleep over. Well, none of this is actually....

Getting a decent push now in western north Jersey, nothing close to out East but we never were expecting all that much

I think parts of NNJ did better than I expected, while in my area we did a little worse; but it wasn't really a bust as we were never expected to get giant amounts, though 8-10 was on the table. A little jog west of those bands would have done it.

The wind is certainly keeping the totals down here in Carteret, but still going.

The wind is killing us with the lighter bands we are getting. How much you got? I'm over in Colonia. Dude in Metuchen says around 6+, he's pretty reliable.

Yup.  Models honed in on a sharp cut off and wall last 24-36 hours before onset.  Nice prolonged light to moderate snow event with some wind for us nonetheless but this one had looks of eastern areas special written on it for a few days.

 

We will have to wait and be patient for our next MECS/HECS here.
