Update on the Snow For Long Island and a Look at the Storm This Weekend
See the "My Personal Weatherman" Facebook page for frequent updates.
- While there are still differences in the models, it looks like 1 to 2 inches for Suffolk with an isolated 2.5 to 3 inch total being possible in southeastern Suffolk. Lower amounts as you go towards northwest Long Island with a coating to a 1/2 inch probably. It should start as rain showers around 7 PM and then change to snow around 8 PM to 10 PM and end between midnight and 2 AM from west to east on Long Island. Southeastern MA has a decent chance of getting 2 to as much as 4 inches of snow. I will have more updates this morning and afternoon on the snow.
- For Long Island, cold and increasingly windy on Wednesday with a possible passing snow shower in the afternoon or early evening. Wind gusts could reach 40 mph with temps in the upper 30's. Sunny with a decreasing wind on Thursday with highs only in the mid 30's. Mostly cloudy with highs near 50 degrees on Friday. Highs will be near 60 degrees on Saturday and Sunday (temps dropping Sunday mid-afternoon). There may be a few showers Saturday, but better chance Saturday evening. The main batch of rain with the cold front looks to be Sunday morning with possible clearing skies by late afternoon.
- It appears that the main area of snow/ice for this weekend will be for northern New England with all snow way to the north. There will be sharp cutoffs in temperatures as the maps below show, so the exact placement/track of the storm will determine the ice/snow amounts. I will continue to update on this going forward.
