Discussion

Low pressure will intensify off the Mid-Atlantic coastline today and push very slowly to the north as it encounters a blocking pattern in the atmosphere. The brunt of this winter storm will take place from later today into tonight as heavier rounds of precipitation work their way across southeastern NY and the winds will pick up in intensity as well. Any mixed precipitation early this morning should change back to all snow later in the day as colder air wraps around the intensifying storm off the Mid-Atlantic coastline. Given very strong dynamics in the upper atmosphere, there is the potential for “mesoscale” or small-scale banding later today and tonight containing brief outbursts of very heavy snow and possible rumbles of thunder. Total snow accumulations for this storm in the NYC metro region can reach the 12-18 inch range by later tomorrow.
