At daybreak this morning rain is moving into the area and temperatures are still on the mild side ranging from the mid 40s in the Clifton area to the upper 30s further inland, winds are from the north around 10 mph.
The storm that we have been following is now expected to be a little closer to the coast which means that it will take a little longer for the precipitation to change to all snow. In the Clifton area rain will start to mix with snow late this morning and change to all snow by 2pm and continue as snow tonight ending around midnight, accumulations of 4-6 inches of wet snow is expected. Further inland the rain will change to snow before noon and accumulation there will range from 6-12 inches. Further east will see more rain and accumulations for New York City should be less than 2 inches. Still I have low confidence on the snow amounts with this storm as temperatures are very marginal for all snow.
The storm system will move away on Thanksgiving Day with cloudy skies persisting with a chance of snow flurries and cold temperatures.

Milder on Sunday and Monday with a chance of showers on Monday as a cold front moves through.
