Gusts up to 55 mph as March comes in with Arctic blast and the big storm for Sunday trends closer!
Wind Advisories and even some High Wind Warnings are in effect for the northeast. For Long Island, it's in effect from 4 PM today to 10 AM tomorrow for gusts up to 55 mph. The peak winds for Long Island should be between around 8 PM and 2 AM. Wind chill temperatures will be close to zero degrees by early tomorrow morning. More details are in the Long Island forecast below.
Temperatures will rebound on Wednesday before colder air filters back in to the northeast at the end of the week and through the weekend. After the rain this morning and scattered snow showers tonight, it will be mainly dry for Long Island and the northeast through at least Saturday.
There has been a noticeable shift west with the potentially big offshore storm on Sunday into Monday from the Euro ensembles. While most of them still keep the snow offshore, some of them now even have a snowstorm for Long Island. While the odds are still low, we went from 1 out of 50 ensemble members showing snow on Long Island in the previous run to now 6 out of the 50 showing snow on Long Island. I will be watching this very closely.
