3:34 PM: Heavy rain is now affecting the area, with rainfall amounts over 1 inch across the area, and over 2 inches in some places. The heavy rain band is starting to move out of the area, though moderate rain should continue fall afterwards, with more heavy rain to affect the area later tonight.
Seeing how places in the mountains are already reporting snow, I am slightly raising my forecast amounts from my snow map made this morning, now expecting 1 to 3 inches in the light blue area, and 3 to 6 inches in the darker blue area. The main exception is the small snow area in Western PA, which I might remove from the snow area.
9:22 AM: Moderate to heavy rain is currently affecting Connecticut, southeastern New York and Long Island, with an additional 1/2 inch of rain possible in the next few hours. For northern New Jersey, however, there is not much rain but the wind is the main concern. There are wind reports of at least 15-25 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph in some areas. At this time, it appears that the rain should mainly pick up in intensity for northern New Jersey this afternoon, though Long Island and Connecticut should continue to see moderate to heavy rain, with occasionally lighter rain.
