Quick 4 AM update - 150 inches of snow in CA, no northward trend for Thursday, and LI forecast:
If you want epic snow, the mountains of California will be getting up to 150 inches of snow in the next 7 to 10 days (see 1st image from the Euro).
Not much change with the light snow event for Long Island on Tuesday into early Wednesday morning with generally an inch or two.
Any chances of the big Thursday storm coming farther north are very low. New England will be getting snow though over the next couple of weeks.
I will have more updates today into tonight.
