Play by Play for Today/Tonight's Snow Storm

Everything you need to know in video below (snowfall totals,snowfall rates,winds,timing of storm). On another note, storm  next week looks wet guys. Things can still change but the upper air support is not in place as of now for a Northeast snowstorm. Looks like an inland runner. Brutal cold however in the wake of this current storm and following the rain next week. 


Here has been my going snowfall map published Tuesday morning. Some slight tweaks mentioned on this map in the video. 






















The National Weather Service recently updated to come in line with the same idea..

...WINTER STORM WARNING NOW IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO
1 PM EST FRIDAY...

* HAZARD TYPES...SNOW ALONG WITH AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING
  SNOW.

* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...6 TO 10 INCHES.

* TIMING...SOME SNOW IS POSSIBLE THIS MORNING THROUGH EARLY
  AFTERNOON... HOWEVER THE SNOW WILL THEN INCREASE BY LATER THIS
  AFTERNOON WITH THE BULK OF THE SNOW EXPECTED TONIGHT AND FRIDAY
  MORNING.

* IMPACTS...TRAVEL WILL BECOME HAZARDOUS LATE TODAY AS SNOW
  INCREASES. THIS WILL BE AN INCREASINGLY FLUFFY SNOW AND AS WINDS
  INCREASE TONIGHT... BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW WILL MAKE TRAVEL
  EVEN MORE HAZARDOUS. ROAD PLOWING OPERATIONS WILL BE GREATLY
  AFFECTED... ESPECIALLY DUE TO BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW AND ALSO
  SNOWFALL RATES NEAR AN INCH PER HOUR AT TIMES DURING THE HEIGHT
  OF THE STORM TONIGHT. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE COMBINATION OF
  SNOW AND WIND CREATES NEAR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS AT TIMES...
  ESPECIALLY FOR AREAS FARTHER EAST.


Update later this afternoon.
