The rain/snow line previously expected to drop south of the Northeast on Saturday is now not forecast to descend through the region until early Sunday morning.
This means any precipitation to fall Friday through Saturday is likely to be rain across the majority of New York and New England.
Some scattered snow showers are still possible on Sunday, more so in higher elevations like the Hudson Highlands, Taconics, Berkshires, Green Mountains and White Mountains. Chances remain low 20-40% for even 1 inch 24-hour accumulation by Monday morning.
The following forecast image from the National Weather Service was issued overnight and shows widespread 30-40% chances of getting at least an inch of snow by Monday morning (in a 24-hr period) across the majority of the northeast.
Personally I think this is a tad on the optimistic side and believe that most areas in the Northeast will be lucky to see even a snow flurry, let alone a full inch of sticking accumulation. I will continue to monitor the weather models as they become available and update accordingly.
