Moisture over Pennsylvania and upstate New York is combining with a storm system south of Long Island to form what I'm calling a "mega" band of snow.

This band is going to form over eastern New York and all of southern New England. The result will be pretty much non-stop heavy snow through at least midnight. Anyone near the N.Y. border that was concerned about lower snowfall totals, this band will bring you some hefty amounts of snow.

Through midnight, expect 1 to 3" of snow per hour throughout this band with 4"/hr rates possible, as well as thunder. I received one report of thundersnow in Monroe from Chris a short time ago.

The image below shows the HRRR forecast radar for 9 p.m. It nicely illustrates how the areas of moisture come together to form this unusually large band of heavy snow.
