... then a cold Thanksgiving and long weekend with perhaps some northeast snow the following week***
- Really nice today and tomorrow with mild temperatures, although it will become breezy tomorrow with clouds slowly increasing in the afternoon. - We then have the cold front approaching Friday night into Saturday morning as the strong coastal storm skims eastern New England and becomes a strong storm for DownEast Maine and Nova Scotia. Most of the rain for Long Island, which won't be much, should come from the weakening cold front Saturday morning. I'll probably post a future radar video later this morning. Behind the front, temperatures will be falling on Long Island Saturday afternoon and it will become windy. - Some cold nights and chilly days then before the big rain/wind storm. There are some timing differences, but it's generally from Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning for Long Island with the potential for up to 2 inches of rain with wind gusts up to 45 mph. Plenty of time to watch it and fine-tune the forecast details. - It will then be cold for Thanksgiving and the long weekend. There will then be a chance for some inland snow the week after Thanksgiving. Maybe I'll post the snow maps from the Euro ensembles later this morning.
