Storm Update 9:36 PM

The heaviest snow is overspreading the state and will fall from now until around 3AM. Although some towns mixed in with sleet and rain over the past few hours, everyone is expected to change all over to snow for the duration of the storm. Snowfall rates will appraoch 1"-2" per hour. We’re still expecting the heaviest totals to be along the shoreline, especially near the eastern part of the state. The storm is rapidly intensifying and there are numerous reports of lightning within this storm, south of Long Island. So don’t be surprised if you hear a rumble of thunder tonight. We still expect this storm to move out around or before sunrise with 6”-12” of snow on the ground, with locally higher amounts in the southeast.
