Feb 23, 2013 Noon Update

12:40 PM: Last night’s update noted the storm was expected to be weaker than previously thought, with lower rain totals generally up to 1/4 or 1/2 inch. Based on current observations, however, even this forecast may be a bit too high with hardly any precipitation currently over the region aside from scattered showers over the area. Scattered showers are expected to continue through tonight with a period of steadier light rain in the late afternoon and evening hours, especially in NYC and further east/northeast, otherwise rain totals are generally expected to stay under 1/4 inch west of NYC, with 1/4 to 1/2 inch in Long Island and southern CT. Northernmost parts of the area are expected to see little to no snow accumulations, locally up to 1/2 inch. From NYC and further west, rain is expected to end early tonight aside from scattered overnight showers with clearing skies by Sunday morning, with more cloud cover and scattered showers persisting on Sunday east of NYC.
