Weather update: (9:50am - 1/21/2014)
Despite a slightly quicker start-time for some with the snow, I do not see a reason to make changes to my previous forecast through much of the day today...
I took quick look at some of the 9am data -- still showing the same idea of only light snow/ flurries for much of the morning and afternoon ...
Only an inch or two at the most is expected through 3pm...
The snow intensity should begin to increase between 3pm and 4pm.
*** The peak of the storm will be from 5pm through midnight ***
Snow will taper off between 1am - 2am early Wednesday morning.
A more uniform total is suggested, as the weather system has edged its way closer to the area... with sections of central and southern NJ and Long Island perhaps seeing 1 to 3 inches more, on average than the rest of the Garden State.
Here are the updated snow amounts:
Northwest NJ (Sussex, Warren counties): 5 - 7 inches
The remainder of New Jersey: 7 - 9 inches.
New York City/ Long Island: 7 - 9 inches
(Isolated areas in southern and south/central NJ and Long Island may see 10 - 12 inches).
Radar images throughout the day will determine if additional updates are necessary.
