You really didn’t think we would go though an entire winter season without at least one major snowstorm? Hopefully, this is it.
At 9:00am, there was around a foot of snow near Sandy Hook Bay, NJ, downstream from New York City, and around a half-foot at Central Park. More snow will continue to fall throughout the day until the nor’easter finally moves away sometime late tonight or early tomorrow. Predications from NOAA are for anywhere between 18 to 30 inches of snow.
Along with gusty winds blowing 30 to 50 mph, moderate tidal flooding during times of high tide, and moderate to severe coastal erosion, this could be another storm for the record books. A wild winters day along New York Harbor.
A blizzard warning remains in effect until tomorrow. Roads are icy and mostly snow covered. Winds are blowing and snow is falling furiously. It's a good time to stay home and enjoy the sight of snow outside your window with a mug of hot chocolate.
