Major Snowstorm With Near-Blizzard Conditions on Track for Long Island
**Major snowstorm with near-Blizzard conditions on track for Long Island**
-The main time-frame is from 6 AM Wednesday to 6 AM Thursday.
-Sleet may mix in during tomorrow morning and potentially at times in Suffolk tomorrow afternoon.
-This storm will have colder air to work with so temps will be around 31 to 33 during the storm, so snow ratios may be as high as 10:1 or 11:1, and with total liquid precipitation expected to be around 1.5", snow amounts will generally be 8 to 14 inches on Long Island, except lower amounts for eastern Suffolk.
-Also, the air is much drier with this storm than the last one, so it creates strong evaporational cooling, and the roads have a much better chance of becoming snow-covered.
-Wind gusts up to 40 mph along with heavy wet snow will cause some power outages.
