Snow has been falling along the shore in the Old Saybrook area for a few hours now. Was just a light snow at 7:00AM, now coming down fast

I don't know if it will reach to any part of CT, but I noticed on the maps the rain/snow line is creeping north.....seems on the maps to be about at the northern Bronx into the Sound across the northern 1/3 of LI (it's all snow here in southern Westchester right now but the roads are wet and it's only sticking a little to everything else, making me think it's kind of a wet snow here right now). I wonder if that keeps going if it will lower totals in southwest CT (or produce more of an icy mix to start). When I first looked this morning at about 8:30, that line was right on the south shore of LI through Rockaway and Coney Island into Staten Island and NJ like on the map you (Cambium) showed.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, the (for now) unphased storm on the ocean looks a little further north and east than that "future radar loop" you showed had it predicted for this time. If I'm correct on that, A) it should end earlier Sat. morning than predicted, but B) while maybe produce a little bit less for NYC and perhaps western CT zones, might produce MORE for eastern CT and Boston (one reason I'm noting this is I've been reading about some models actually pushing the most snow west, i.e. NYC and western CT gets the 2-3 feet and Boston "only" gets 12-18").

All I can say, is that this had -better- be a driving hazard at some point between noon and 4pm. Because, that was my explanation to my boss as to why I'm not coming in for my shift today. If I worked in like, a supermarket, or restaurant, or a hotel, where customers might actually NEED to be in the face of a blizzard (y'know, food, water, shelter), then I can imagine myself actually challenging death on the way to work for a low-paying part time job. But an office supply company? Really?

Gusts over tropical storm strength at Nags Head on the Outer Banks shifting around to the northwest...Cambium is probably right...cat 1 equivalent in New England.

Good idea. There is no reason why you should go in for a 12-4 shift. None whatsoever.

The Hartford Courant has a snow map that shows 30" in New Haven and 38" in Hartford. Cam - is that possible?

Possible but not probable. I think CNN's Chad Myers showed that yesterday as being the "worst case" of the models...the best case had 12" for Hartford and 10" for New Haven. Could be that NWS has averaged the models to do their projection.

Just when I said what I said about wet snow, and the rain/snow line, now it's coming down harder and starting to coat the side roads (hmm, maybe the western edge of that "burst in Stamford" Cambium mentioned?)

Same here, Slipperman. In Hartford roads are clear and wet. Maybe a dusting on untreated surfaces.
