Two close calls for snow for New Jersey

Radar image as of this post: 2/16/2013 - 11:00am

Weather update: After much debate on the forecast for today, it appears that precipitation will remain out to sea -- with only a few flurries or sprinkles.
During Sunday, another storm, currently over North Carolina, will move east, and be over be the ocean, and miss New Jersey. However, extreme eastern Long Island should be prepared for the possibility of accumulating snow, as it will be close enough to provide some of the white stuff.

A new Nor'easter for New Jersey

Details for the next East coast storm are becoming clearer, but the specifics will be better determined tonight...
A bit of snow will fall across New Jersey/NYC and Long Island Friday morning, perhaps putting down a light accumulation...
By mid-late morning, much of the the above areas will change over to sleet and rain, and continue for the majority of the daylight hours.
By late afternoon, or early evening, the precipitation will change back to snow, and continue, heavy at times Friday evening and Friday night, and end early Saturday morning.

There will be a wide range of accumulations over a fairly short distance.

For central New New Jersey counties, snow amounts look to be between 4 - 6 inches.
For northern New Jersey counties, and NYC, snowfall accumulations could reach between 6 - 8 inches.
For much of Long Island, 8 - 14 inches of the white stuff is expected.

Just as an FYI -- Boston can expect 14 - 18 inches of snow.

The above totals are still expected to be adjusted as more weather data confirms the certainty of the snow amounts.

My next post will be after 10pm tonight.
