Dec 19 Storm Updates

11:55 AM: As mentioned yesterday, the storm appeared further west on the short range models, giving a chance of accumulating snow in Long Island/S CT. The 00z NAM model run was the most extreme, showing nearly 2-4 inches for eastern Long Island, and while this was too much, there is still the potential of accumulating snow in eastern Long Island today, potentially up to 1-2 inches if the snow is heavy enough.

Looking at the radar, we are seeing precipitation off the coast moving northeast and intensifying while also expanding. While they may be too far east for NYC to get any snow, Long Island will likely see snow today, potentially mixing with rain near the immediate coast, with the best chance of snow, potentially accumulating, in eastern Long Island and SE Connecticut.

More updates on this will be posted later today, as well as an update tonight focusing on a potential storm that may affect the area on Christmas Day.
