As of 5pm, we have an inch or so of snow on top of the cars, less on the sidewalks, just slippery enough to make drivers in ordinary cars skid a bit past their turn.
The forecast is for about two more inches of snow. There is a dry area on radar following the next band of snow, but the NWS is concerned that as the center of the storm develops offshore, this gap could be replaced by another strong band of snow.
The winds have diminished since midday roaring gusts that interrupted power twice for two seconds at a time. The winds should increase as the storm develops offshore this evening, with gusts to 50 mph.
With snow falling from the trees in the wind, and perhaps tree limbs falling from the trees in the wind, tonight is not a good time to be outside.
Lighter amounts of rain and snow for tomorrow through midday.
The winter-like weather will be replaced by really nice fall-like weather this weekend.
