Details on the Snowstorm for Long Island Tomorrow
A late autumn snowstorm is on the way to Long Island for tomorrow. Snow should develop between 6 AM and 9 AM for Suffolk and between 7 AM and 10 AM for Nassau. The steadiest and heaviest snow should be between 2 PM and 10 PM. The snow should taper off from west to east between midnight and 4 AM. Generally, Long Island should get 4 to 7 inches. The Euro is showing some mixing with rain for Suffolk at the beginning, which has the potential to hold down amounts to 2 to 4 inches for eastern Suffolk. The GFS is showing the potential for slightly higher amounts, but that's based on a 10:1 snow ratio. Since this will be a wetter snow, the snow ratio will be closer to 7:1.
The next storm for Tuesday night into Wednesday looks more like a big snowstorm for MA, VT, NH, and ME with potential for 8 to 16 inches of snow. I will update more on that storm in the coming days.
