Light snow back in play now for L.I. late tonight and update on the snow for the weekend and Tues:
- There is a Special Weather Statement for Long Island this morning until 8 AM for black ice, so please be careful this morning.
- While it won't be a big event, light snow is now likely for Long Island for late tonight into very early tomorrow morning (around midnight to 7 AM) with up to an inch possible.
- The system for Saturday night into Sunday morning won't be a major storm, but it will bring some accumulations to the northeast with some mixed precipitation likely along the coast. The details for Long Island are in the forecast below, but 1 to 3 inches of snow is possible along with some sleet, freezing rain, and rain before ending by late morning on Sunday.
- Tuesday will be a bigger storm that will bring widespread snow to the northeast. The GFS, Canadian, and ICON show mostly snow with some sleet for Long Island, but the Euro has a warmer solution, which seems unlikely at the moment, so I am discounting it unless it shows it again this afternoon. The NWS model blend shifted the rain/snow line southeast, which seems more likely.
- I will continue to update on all of these systems.
