Update on Potential Snow Events for Long Island and Surrounding Areas
See the "My Personal Weatherman" Facebook page for continuous updates.
- Be careful this morning as temps are below freezing and there has been some snow and ice overnight. - System #1: A weak system should bring light snow to Long Island and areas southwest of there Friday morning. It looks like possibly a coating to a half-inch for Long Island from around 5 AM to 10 AM Friday. - System #2: Increasing chances of an accumulating snow for Long Island into southeast MA Friday night into late morning Saturday. Potential for 2 or 3 inches of snow, especially for Suffolk, and as much as 4 to 6 inches for Cape Cod. For Long Island, it looks like snow from around 10 PM Friday to 10 AM Saturday, but there is still some uncertainty, and rain/sleet may mix in at times. - Sunday late afternoon into Monday morning: Models continue to have the rain/snow line close to Long Island. The Euro has mostly rain for Long Island with heavy snow amounts inland. The other models are closer to Long Island with the rain/snow line. It's too close to call at this time, but I'm favoring it starting as snow and changing to rain, and then ending as snow. - Very cold mid-week with low temperatures possibly of 10 to 15 degrees for Long Island. - Potential for another storm next Friday, but too early to tell if it would be rain or snow.
