Afternoon update March 6th

The storm off the Virginia coast is moving very slowly offshore and although we didn’t receive any snow yet with the system we have had the winds especially this morning gusting to above 45 mph. The only precipitation so far was in the form of rain and it was scattered. Coastal flooding has occurred along the New Jersey coast. We are not out of the woods yet, some snow is expected after 9pm tonight and there may be a coating in some spots by Thursday morning. Some light snow during the day on Thursday but most of that will accumulate only on cold surfaces. The most snowfall should fall Thursday night into Friday morning due to a colder northerly flow from the slow moving storm system offshore with an additional 1-3 inches possible. Gusty winds to at least 40 mph through Thursday night. At least the weekend still looks very springlike with temperatures in the 50s with plenty of sunshine.
