A brief look ahead and the Long Island forecast:
Finally, a sunny day today for Long Island and the northeast. A quick-moving system tomorrow will bring showers to Long Island and a few inches of snow mostly for the higher elevations of northern NY state and New England. The Sunday storm is almost certain to stay offshore, although there are still a few ensemble members from both the GFS and Euro that have the storm bring snow to the northeast. (5:30 AM Edit: The new 06Z runs of both the GFS and ICON now have the storm bring snow to the northeast, so I will be watching the 06Z Euro like a hawk, lol.) The next system then for Tuesday should bring mostly rain (possibly starting as snow) to Long Island with some snow for central to northern New England. It should then be cold and dry the rest of the week and possibly into Valentine's Day. It looks like there will be a chance for snow and ice in the southeastern states Valentine's weekend.
