Forecast for Long Island With the Potential For Snow
- Overall, snow chances look pretty good for New England (especially northern New England) for the next couple of weeks, and the Euro is even showing some below average temperatures for the northeast after Valentine's Day. A good amount of the ensembles are showing some pretty big snowfall totals for the northeast, including Long Island to Boston. - Regarding the Sunday system, the models are still kind of all over the place. Looking at the Euro ensembles, some of them are showing a big snowstorm for Long Island, but some of them are showing nothing as well. The main Euro run is showing the snow being mostly to our south with us getting light snow. I'll be watching this closely and updating. - For Long Island, some showers this morning into early afternoon possibly and then cloudy with highs around 50 degrees. Some more light showers for late tonight into early tomorrow morning, and then mostly cloudy tomorrow and colder with highs in the low 40's. Rain then arrives sometime around midnight tomorrow night, but it may briefly start as sleet, especially in northern Nassau. Most of the rain will end by early to mid afternoon Thursday from west to east with highs around 45 to 47 degrees. Another wave of rain arrives Thursday night, and it will be moderate to occasionally heavy at times before tapering off in the early afternoon on Friday. Saturday looks good with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 40's. There is a lot of uncertainty for Sunday, but there is a chance for rain or snow, and then Monday will be dry.
