Major changes with potential Sunday snowstorm:
First, there are still snow showers around Long Island, and I have seen reports that some areas may have gotten close to 2 inches overnight. Temperatures are in the upper 20's, so be careful out there as untreated surfaces will be icy.
The Euro no longer shows phasing and a big snowstorm for the northeast on Sunday. The Canadian and GFS don't have the snowstorm either. However, it is still possible. Some of the ensemble members from the Euro and GFS still have the storm, and the UKMET and ICON models have the storm as well. Also, the National Weather Service model blend still has snow for the northeast on Sunday. Next week will be very cold, and we will watch for the next potential snowstorm, but there is a lot of uncertainty of course.
