JOE’S SNOW FORECAST FOR TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY
One of the big questions for the coast is some rain at the onset. Weather models show the atmosphere at the coast borderline in terms of temperatures. If precipitation that develops is intense enough it would likely cool down the bottom of the atmosphere enough that we could see mostly snow at the coast. If it is lighter in nature that could mean a mix or rain at least for awhile across Long Island and Coastal New Jersey. The nature of this system is not all that strong so there could always be an issue where precipitation does not develop in a widespread way. For now I think the forecast is a fair one given where all the weather models are with this..and that is basically all over the place. Confidence in this forecast remains low.
One of my concerns is that the system to the west and the system to the east remain essentially separate creating a hole in the middle. This is a concern and could create an outcome where amounts on the western and eastern end of the area are higher than the amounts in between.
