SNOW FORECAST HRRR MODEL

We all know these 1 to 2 inch snowfalls can be worse to deal with on the roads then higher snow falls since when its 4 inches plus everyone seems to know to stay away. The latest HRRR model is getting even more bullish for snow on Long Island with an expanding area of 3 inches or more over Suffolk County. The model is also generating between .30 and .40 liquid which would translate to 5-6 inches at 15-1 ration. I’m not ready to go there yet but im going to think about nudging up Long Island later tonight if the model trends continue. Winter Weather Advisories have also been expanded across Northern New Jersey to include more of the eastern and southwestern counties. They have also raised snow estimates for the entire region with the highest amounts over Long Island in a general 2 to 3 inch snow forecast. Temperatures throughout this entire event will be in the low to mid 20s.

Snow will end by daybreak in New Jersey and by 9 or 10am over Long Island. Some sunshine will break through the clouds in the afternoon with highs in the lower 30s. Then it turns very cold Thursday night with Friday morning lows in the teens just about everywhere and the single digits in areas north and west of the coast. Friday will be cold and rather cloudy as another disturbance develops east of the Delaware coast. It would seem that any snow that develops from this will remain offshore. Then it will be nice and dry for the weekend with sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday with highs both days in the 30s.
