Thundersnow Thunderstorms Winter Storm Warning Continues
Thundersnow Thunderstorms Winter Storm Warning Continues Into Tonight
The intensifying storm is playing out according to the script. Cold air drained rapidly southward and changed the rain to snow just about everywhere. Numerous thunderstorms have developed just east of the Central New Jersey coast. You can see them marked on the satellite picture above and on the local radars below. The heaviest snow will fall between 4pm and 8pm and there will be some blinding snow rates during this time frame with thunderstorms and thundersnow. Snow is accumulating now on most surfaces and after 3pm the sun angle is no longer in play so we will be accumulating a heavy wet snow into the first part of tonight.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
You can see on the local radars a comma shape developing to the radar echos as a comma head develops. Whoever gets under that comma head will see very heavy snow. This is where coastal areas like Long Island, Northeast Monmouth County in New Jersey to NYC & Coastal Connecticut could see it snow very hard right through whatever an evening commute we have. After 8pm the storm will be heading toward Nantucket and we will see the snow gradually end. Snow accumulations will be difficult to measure since it is a very wet snow with snow rations probably under 8 to 1 and in some cases perhaps as low as 5 to 1. At this point lets just pile it on and see what we finish with.
