45 mph gusts possible Monday night and slight SE shift in the snow for the Wednesday storm:
- Wind gusts of 35 to 50 mph are possible for Long Island Monday evening just ahead of the cold front, and it's possible that a Wind Advisory will be needed.
- The Euro ensembles and the Canadian shifted southeastward with the storm and therefore the rain/snow line for the storm for Wednesday into Wednesday night. It still looks like rain for Long Island, but it's still possible that it starts and/or ends as snow. No accumulations are expected at this time, but it can't be ruled out yet.
