There is a change in the forecast. Looks like most of the action will stay south of the city for tonight. All we may get from the first part of this storm could be a coating, maybe an inch at most by day break.
As the storm pulls away Thursday night into Friday morning, a very complex trough will develop bringing snow back in from northeast to southwest forming the second round of this storm. 1-3” of snow looks like the best bet for a huge swath of the area with little more over Eastern Long Island.
The storm will develop a warm core into Friday afternoon allowing it to go back to a rain/snow mix before it all ends. The big story continues to be the wind, the moderate tidal flooding and the pounding of the shore from Long Island to New Jersey.
