Forecaster Evie: Are You Kidding??
There is 5" of snow on the ground in New York City already. Kennedy Airport has reported wind gusts to 37 mph and the winds are just getting started. The satellite (below) shows the low pressure system slightly west (bad!) of where it was predicted to be at this point.
Under those clouds are thunderstorms -- more bad news. The AccuWeather map below shows cloud-to-ground lighting flashes.
Here is the AccuWeather Regional Radar showing the storm as of 6:15pm As the storm strengthens the movement of the snow is becoming more westerly than on the last update.
