7:10 AM: Through the late overnight to early morning hours, we saw moderate to locally heavy snow affecting the western and central parts of the area. The storm has ended for the western parts of the area, and will end for most of the immediate NYC area from 7 to 8 AM as the back end of the storm comes through.
For the eastern parts of the area, however, the worst of the storm is only starting, with the moderate to heavy snow currently in SW CT and moving ENE. The snow near the back end of the storm is intensifying as expected, and will bring widespread moderate to heavy snow across southern into central Connecticut, where 4 to locally 7 inches of snow are expected. Long Island is currently seeing snow mixing with sleet and rain in some places. The snow will end there later this morning.
Another update may be posted later this morning, otherwise the next update will be posted later tonight, focusing on a potentially intense storm that will affect the area on Wednesday, bringing the potential for a mix of rain and snow.
