Stormy for the NY/NJ metro area -- waiting for the changeover to snow

By: Weathertango , 3:55 PM GMT on March 06, 2013

Weather update:
This has been one of the more difficult storms to forecast regarding snow amounts --
Rain is moving into southern NJ at this hours (10:45am) -- and will spread into the rest of NJ/NYC/ Long Island by early afternoon...
It will be too warm for any snow in these areas until around 4 or 5pm, when snow will begin to mix in for the metropolitan area, with a change-over to snow expected after 6pm... which should continue through tonight into Thursday morning...

These are the EXPECTED weather conditions mentioned above.
This will be an hour-by-hour observation as the storm continues to strengthen, and wait for the switch over to snow late today...
The snow amounts will be determined when (and if) this changeover occurs...
I am maintaining a general 1 - 3 inch snowfall forecast for NJ/New York and Long Island-- but this could, and likely will, change as the change to snow becomes more certain.
Radar updates will be watched as the storm organizes this afternoon.
Winds continue to be gusty and will increase to between 40 and 50 mph as the day progresses .. and coastal flooding will be an issue for the shore areas during high tide...
Stay tuned for updates during the day.
