NYC Snowstorm Update

Above are just a couple of photos recently posted on Twitter, showing the heavy snowfall taking place currently across the NYC metro area.  If you'd like to see more, just go to Twitter and search for "NYC Snow" or something similar, and you'll be bombarded with real-time tweets of all the action.

Thunder and lightning have been reported during the past hour at JFK airport and Central Park.  Snow is currently falling at a rate of 2-3 inches per hour across much of the metro area, just as we had predicted in posts earlier today.

Winds have also continued to strengthen as we had forecast, with current steady winds of 35-40 mph and gusts of 45-50 mph at JFK airport.  The wind will continue to intensify as the evening unfolds, with near blizzard to blizzard conditions likely at times.

This continues to unfold into a major snowstorm/blizzard for the area, and all travel is highly discouraged.  Stay inside, light the fire and enjoy the storm!
