In fact, their new update has 10-21 inches for central park.

everything is on track.

Queens looking at intense jackpot rates right now. Central eastern thru north west Queens especially.

Everyone goes to heavy snow this evening into friday. Even eastern LI.

Status quo from what I said the other day.
They just switched the maps now to that says around 3.5inches every 4-6 hours. Previously it totaled only 6-8 or so. That said, it's really coming down hard.

Just got home from work. The highways are terrible. The I-95 was completely covered in slush and snow. Streets are a mess. I know I'm sleeping late tomorrow!

Looks like I'll catch the USA game afterall

Although it was snowing hard before here in Bed Stuy, it is mostly slush

Reports of 2 deaths in Manhattan.

One a tree fell on a person in central park

Another, a tree fell on a bus.

Each flake weighs 1 pound, I **** you not. Expect even more incidents and power outages tonight when things begin to freeze over. Guess what? The wind hasn't even started to crank yet! Once that happens many old trees are going to have a tough time.

I was just outside for about 3 hours, over in Northern NJ, Bergen County.

If anyone has any cardiac problems or has parents that have cardiac problems please DO NOT shovel this snow, it is extremely heavy and takes a big time toll on your body, even if you take several breaks. The sonw/slush/water at the mouth of the driveways must weigh 20-30 pounds each shovels worth.

This storm is paralyzing. (they were right!) The weight and the water saturation of this snow is causing major problems, theres no way for the excess water and slush to drain off so you are ankle deep in crap anywhere you walk. I saw 3 or 4 streets in the areas i lived coned off because of downed wires. The weight of the snow is starting to snap them all over the place, and we are just at the start of this storm.

I'm hoping the power stays on and im hoping the roof holds because i cant remember snow this dense. This is already one of the worst storms i can remember as far as the problems its causing and the difficulty of shoveling it. There are police and fire trucks all over the place. My brother who lives about 5 towns north of here said a tree snapped a house away from him, and like HP said the wind hasnt even started yet.

If you dont have to go outside or drive, dont. Its a complete mess out there.

Great post.

Winter Storm Warning from the NWS has been extended in saturday morning, which is what I said would happen the other day.

Manhattan isn't called heat island for no reason. You can't just go in the middle of the street or sidewalk and measure. You need to find a quiet place, preferable near a park and measure. However, I wouldn't reccomend going anywhere near a park at the rate these trees are snapping.

Official report from the national weather service has central park at 5.5" of snow at the moment.

I guess that makes sense. I'm just used to seeing some snow on the ground when it snows a half a foot. lol And don't worry about me...I'm not stepping foot outside again until the morning.

It had been raining all day in Port Chester, started snowing maybe 30 minutes ago, and started sticking almost immediately.

Wow, weather.gov is saying up to 11 inches of snow for NW Suffolk.
I guess the track of the storm shifted to the east more than initially expected?
Because the same site was saying way less last night...
