Euro has close-call snowstorm for Long Island with a little ensemble support:
First, we have the system with snow showers moving across the northeast. It won't get to Long Island until early afternoon, so it could be light rain or snow showers. Then we have the sunny and milder weather tomorrow and Friday before more clouds and possible showers at times from Saturday late afternoon into Sunday afternoon possibly.
While most of the models have the next storm for early next week stay south of Long Island and slide offshore, the Euro has Long Island on the northern edge with the potential for rain changing to snow late Monday night and continuing into Tuesday afternoon with the potential for 6 inches of snow. That would still have to be considered a long shot at this point. However, it does have some ensemble members showing it as 9 of the 50 ensemble members are showing 2 inches or more of snow for Long Island early next week. Also, the GFS, which usually has an offshore bias, has been trending westward with the storm.
