Forecasting March snowstorms can drive your local meteorologist insane. I'm sure by now you have seen or heard at least a million different forecasts -- ok maybe not quite a million, but a heck of a lot.

The timing of this storm has been a major issue along with the axis of the heavy wet snow.

Well your honor we have now reached a verdict and if we waited any longer we would be telling you what already did happen.

Here is the final call:


For Philadelphia:

A mix of rain and wet snow arrives mainly after 7 p.m. Any mix will change over to all snow after 10 p.m. Snow could be moderate at times between midnight and 4 p.m.

Total accumulation: 1-2 inches

Coastal New Jersey:

From Atlantic City, south to Cape May: Generally 1-3 inches as plenty of mixing will take place. Heavier bands of wet snow likely.

From Atlantic City and points north: 3-6 inches

New York:

Mix of snow and rain arrives after 8 p.m., changes to all snow by 10 p.m. Accumulates between midnight and 5 a.m. 1-3 inches

Long Island:

Western Nassau and Suffolk: mix to all snow by 10 p.m. 2-4 inches by 5 a.m.

From Islip and all points east, especially the twin forks: Mix to all heavy bands of wet snow from midnight to 6 a.m. Generally 4-8 inches.


A brief mix arrives around 10 p.m., then all wind driven heavy bands of snow overnight through the morning rush. Ending between 8-10 a.m.

Generally 4-8 inches with a few pockets of 10 inches possible.

Capes: Rain to start around 11 p.m., should mix with and possibly change to heavy wet snow. With extensive mixing less than 3 inches. However as I write this, the possibility of 5+ with less mixing. Windy, minor tidal flooding
