12/25/10 Noon: Blizzard Warning For NYC

5:00 PM Brief Update: With the latest model guidance having trended even more west and even heavier with the precipitation, I extended the heavy snow warning inland and added a blizzard warning for the immediate NYC area and Long Island/S CT, with the latest expected amounts at 8-16 inches inland, 12 to 18 inches in the immediate NYC area and 10 to 18 inches in Long Island, where rain may mix with the snow in eastern Long Island. Locally higher amounts up to 22-24 inches are possible in the heavier snow bands.

A final storm discussion, covering the development of the storm, the forecast snow totals and timing for the area, and a snow map for the area will be posted late tonight, with storm updates being posted tomorrow.
