European Model Brings Snow North
Tonight’s European model brings snow north with the axis of heavy snow touching New York City. It also shifted the northern fringe of accumulating snow a little further north on this run. Actually when you look at the European surface and upper air, the surface lows match pretty well with the GFS and the Canadian. They are not that far apart. The difference is how the model has the upper feature oriented when it is at the coast.
The differences in the two are subtle. They really aren’t that far apart. The GFS has the upper low tucked in a little further northwest than the European which probably accounts for the GFS having the heavy snow axis further north. But the surface lows are in about the same spots. This is going to make the forecast especially difficult because there will be a wall of literally miles where you will go from flurries to a few inches to many inches. The European tonight says that line between few and many gets close to New York City.

The European model generates almost 1 inch of liquid preciptiation across Long Island, New York City and points southward with half an inch up to just north and west of route 84 in New York. It also brings half an inch of liquid across coastal Connecticut. This is more robust than the day run. Should this be all snow it certainly translates to a 6 to 10 inch snowfall across much of Southern Connecticut, Long Island, New York City and Northern New Jersey south of route 80 with lesser amounts as you start going north and west.
My takeaway from all this is that the models are now very close and now it becomes a matter of fine tuning everything over the next few days. Later this morning I will put out a first call map. I would like to see one more run to just to get a feel for whether the trend continues. Certainly the model has left the door open and there is still time for more adjustments in either direction to occur.
