Jan 6: Snow Storm Update
We are raising expected snow totals for tomorrow. Here’s our new map…
Disco: We’re seeing impressive convection down south and now believe that the precipitation shield will expand to the NW past the I-95 corridor. This increases totals for most of New Jersey and naturally ups the expected jackpot zone from 4-6 to 6-8 inches. The low is not going to make a miraculous track to the NW. There is some room for that but the main reason for the increase is simply a larger precipitation shield generated from a more powerful low because of stronger dynamics aloft over the E US.
In English: SENJ is still expected to see jackpot accumulations from this system and areas to the NW are still expected to see a sharp cut-off. We’ve raised expected accumulations slightly and pushed the NW extent past I-95 however to account for what we’re seeing on live observations and the latest data. The general bookends of timing have been expanded to between 5am and 5pm tomorrow. The above updated snow map represents our updated call going into the system. Let the now-casting begin and please be safe! JC
