I can see that. Very strong radar echoes in that batch moving through north-central NJ, drifting towards NYC.

Radar has nothing over me anymore, but still snowing well.

Orange County seems to be the hardest hit with heavy snow in our area. 9 reports of double digits including an 18.3 in Mt. Hope and 13 in Gardnertown.

It was a nightmare up here weatherbowl. On my iPhone the maps showed entire RED on literally every road through the county yesterday evening. A spotter reported 11.5 here in New Windsor.

So did the models get the soundings wrong here? Did that warm layer never develop? Did the intensity overcome it? I know the models showed the snow but I was expecting half of it to be sleet and a good amount of ZR also.

Ratios must have been very high during our heavy snow. We got around a foot then turned over to a drizzle and light sleet. During that it compressed down. Yesterday when temperature rose, snowpack basically was less then half. As of last night it was around 4 inches. Already seeing some grass under some trees now

Storm may have been just east enough and also I don't think the models realized how strong the CAD was going to be. Also if the storm is east enough it will inhibit the upper level from warming too quickly.
The storm was largely 90% or more snow NW of NYC. Once the upper levels warmed the precip shut off.
