Confidence continues to increase that a strong winter storm will affect the area Friday night into Saturday night, but there is still some model spread on how close to the coast the storm will track and the intensity of low pressure.
As of right now, there is increasing confidence in a widespread 2 to 4-inch snowfall during the Friday Night period for most of the area.
(NOTE: the graphic here is snowfall through 7 am Saturday).
Additional snowfall is expected Saturday into Saturday night, with the highest probability for seeing warning-level total snowfall (6"+) across NYC, Long Island, and CT.
There is an increasing threat for heavy snow (6"+), strong winds, and coastal impacts for portions of the region, but confidence is still low on the location details at this point. There are several governing factors to this, which we should have increasing clarity on over the next 24-36 hours.
This storm has the potential to bring multiple hazards and difficult travel conditions to the region Friday night through Saturday night.
We will fine-tune and increase the messaging detail on the heavy snow, strong wind and coastal flood threats as they become clearer over the next 48 hours.
