Big northeast storm early next week and the Long Island forecast:
While there is still uncertainty in the specifics, it's becoming increasingly likely that there will be a big storm in the northeast next week from Monday night into Wednesday morning. For example, the Canadian model is showing some crazy snow amounts inland, and the Euro is showing snow inland and a lot of rain and wind for the coast with hurricane-force wind gusts. It's still a week away, so we'll have to see how it evolves; the track and strength will determine the impacts.
Before the storm though, it will turn very mild on Thursday with highs in the mid 60's on Long Island, and then a cold front will come through Thursday night.
After the big storm early next week, it will be chilly for Wednesday and Thanksgiving!
