From the NWS –

Very impressive looking storm on the visible satellite imagery is located well east of Norfolk VA this morning. Despite being far offshore, the storm is large enough to be pushing an area of light to moderate to heavy snow back toward the northwest across Long Island and southern New England, with the leading edge starting to push west across New York City as of 930 am. A band of heavy snow is beginning to push westward across Cape Cod and is approaching the eastern end of Long Island.
