Cutoff ULL moved from ArkLaTex to KY pulling large swath of heavy precip from FL/GA up east coast/Applachians and wrapping around into OH/IN/IL. Precip entered Northeast thursday with coastal low developing along carolinas + tracking up E.Coast. Leading North east precip presented as broad arc from OH to MA with significant frontogenesis. "As of 945 PM EST, very heavy snowband earlier this evening pummeled the mid Hudson Valley, Litchfield County CT, and the SE Catskills with a very quick 6-10 inches of snow (if not locally higher). Strong mid level frontogenetical forcing and isentropic lift at the nose of a east/southeast low level jet likely contributed to the intensity of this band. However, as it slowly tracked north, overall intensity weakened." -AFD NWS ALY 119 AM EST Fri Nov 16 2018
