Blizzard Update: 5:25pm EST

The National Weather Service says "New York City will be a raging blizzard by 6am."

Here is the AccuWeather Regional Radar at 5:15pm EST:
I have placed arrows depicting the direction of movement of the snow. Yes, that is rain out over the Atlantic but with the cold temperatures inland the precipitation will stay in the form of snow over land.

In New York, winds are now picking up with about 4 to 5" already on the ground. New York will see about 24" with another few inches on Long Island. Subways will be shut down at 11pm.

My snow amount forecast is unchanged; it is pretty much what I was forecasting yesterday with the exception of the heavier amounts around Boston. At Logan, I'm thinking about 28-30" however, there will be so much drifting it will be hard to tell. Winds will be increasing across all of coastal New England overnight. Blizzard conditions will spread across the areas tinted in green and in coastal Maine.
So, the blizzard has arrived. Good luck, everyone! I'll have at least one other update this evening.
