Lots going on, both on-air and behind the scenes, so I'll keep it quick.
- High confidence on snow moving in Wednesday afternoon, west to east, in Central/Southern New England, impacting evening drive.
- Moderate to high confidence on snowfall amounts through 7 AM Thursday, excepting at the immediate shorelines where preciptation type is more in question, but thinking dry air will cool enough to allow for at least some snow most spots.
- High confidence on melted precipitation amounts Thursday 7 AM to Thursday 7 PM (event end) but low to low-moderate confidence on additional snowfall amounts, as snowflakes may be very poor accumulating in nature
Given the above factors, I've opted to broadcast TWO accumulation maps, back-to-back. The first is the higher confidence map valid through 7 AM Thursday. The second is for the event total, through Thursday evening. Notice that amounts don't change at all in Southern New England - additional snow on Thursday will be very tough to accumulate - but Central and Northern New England will see heartier bursts of snow Thursday, so an additional few inches seems likely.
Through 7 AM Thursday:
