A strong clipper is currently diving southeast towards the Mid Atlantic coast slightly faster than currently expected.
The overall idea with the forecast is still intact with the majority of the snowfall expected for tomorrow morning. Most locations can expect a trace to two inches of snow as the low pressure system exits off the New Jersey coast.
However, by tomorrow morning the low pressure system will rapidly intensify and an inverted trough will develop over the coastal waters of Ocean County, New Jersey. This trough will lift northward and produce periods of light to moderate snowfall. A burt of heavy snow is possible from northern Ocean County through Monmouth County, New Jersey and the south side of Kings County, Queens County, Nassau, and Suffolk County of New York. Snowfall amounts for most locations will range from 1 to 3 inches with locally higher amounts. The highest snowfall totals possible are capped at 6 inches due to the fast nature of this storm, however such a snowfall total would be very rare and likely only to occur over central and eastern Monmouth County of New Jersey where the snow band is expected to be strongest.
