    up to 4 inches here its definately changing to a mix or rain for most of new england. I hope the snow does not get completely washed away before we can plow it:( I don't thinks this storm will even be plowable stupid rain:angry: we have been waiting for a REAL STORM since december, most likely won't get one tommrrow and next week doesent look good either

    News just showed starting 5-8 a.m. A good 5-8 inches then turning over to freezing rain in the afternoon for most of the inland of ct.Another hectic day plowing with the people that dont stay home during the storm when they should.

    The NOAA for my zone (SE NY, So. Ct and NE NJ) has elevated their snowfall estimates. Could be getting 5-7 inches of snow followed by prolonged period of freezing rain. Better get out and plow before it freezes over.

    WEATHER MAP DISCUSSION FOR EXTREME SOUTHEASTERN NEW
    YORK...NORTHEASTERN NEW JERSEY AND SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT

    .DISCUSSION...

    SHORT TERM...ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR INTERIOR COUNTIES AND
    A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR THE REMAINING ZONES CLOSER TO THE
    COAST FOR LATE TONIGHT THRU FRIDAY OR FRIDAY NIGHT DEPENDING ON THE
    LOCATION. IN ADDITION...ISSUED A FLOOD WATCH FOR COASTAL ZONES FOR
    FRI AFTERNOON INTO FRI NIGHT.

    TONIGHT/FRI...GFS LOOKS LIKE IT HAS A BETTER HANDLE FOR THE ONSET OF
    THE SNOW. SNOW MAY START LATE THIS EVE OR NEAR MIDNIGHT ACROSS
    WESTERN PORTIONS AND AFTER MIDNIGHT EAST. HEAVIEST SNOW EXPECTED
    FROM AROUND 5 AM OR SO TIL 9 OR 10 AM AS STRONG OVERRUNNING
    DEVELOPS. TOTAL SNOW EXPECTED RANGING FROM GENERALLY 5 TO 7 INLAND
    TO 3 TO 5 ACROSS LONG ISLAND. WARMER AIR ALOFT MOVES IN BY MID TO
    LATE MORNING RESULTING IN A CHANGEOVER TO SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN IN
    COLDER AREAS AND TO MAINLY RAIN FOR NYC AND LONG ISLAND. COASTAL
    AREAS SHOULD GET A COMPLETE CHANGE TO RAIN BY THE EARLY AFTERNOON.
    THE RAIN MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES RESULTING IN SOME URBAN FLOODING.
    INTERIOR SPOTS OF CT AND THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY MAY NOT GET ABOVE
    FREEZING ON FRI AND MAY SEE A PROLONGED PERIOD OF FREEZING RAIN
    LASTING INTO FRI NIGHT.

    FRI NIGHT...GFS ENDS THINGS QUICKER THAT THE ETA. I COMPROMISED ON
    POPS. FREEZING RAIN MAY CONTINUE INLAND BUT TEMPS ARE EXPECTED TO
    STAY ABOVE FREEZING ACROSS NYC AND LONG ISLAND. COASTAL CT AND PARTS
    OF THE EXTREME LOWER HUDSON VALLEY MAY SEE RAIN OR POSSIBLY SOME
    FREEZING RAIN.

    SAT...THE SYSTEM PULLS AWAY. I COMPROMISED AND FORECASTED CHANCE
    POPS. STILL SOME FREEZING PRECIP POSSIBLE INLAND. COLDER AIR THEN
    MOVES IN SO ANY PRECIP DURING THE AFTERNOON SHOULD GENERALLY BE
    SNOW...ALTHOUGH NO ACCUMULATION EXPECTED.
