Quick 4 AM update:
Impressively heavy rain across Long Island as I write this, but it will be moving through in the next several hours.
Snow amounts in NY state and New England have been increased (see snow maps below). The higher elevations will do very well!
It looks like some weak clipper systems next week. The first one on Monday is very weak, but the one for Tuesday night into Wednesday can leave a coating to an inch or 2 in parts of NY state and New England. The one for Thursday night is a little stronger also and can bring 1 to 3 inches of snow for some areas, but the southern system will stay to our south on Friday, so there won't be any phasing into a bigger storm.
The potential snowstorm threat for the 26th remains, but it can still go either way as it's a long way off.
