According to Eric Holthaus’ fantastic weather blog over at Slate :
“Since this morning, there’s been a lull in precipitation, but snow will start again for everyone between about 5 p.m. and 5 a.m.–with another round of heavy banding and rapid accumulation at times. Factoring in this afternoon’s high-resolution weather models, NYC probably has about a 50 percent chance at another 4-8” of snow tonight. All told, parts of the city could end up with a foot and a half of total snow by Friday morning.”
