MAJOR northeast storm looking likely beginning next Thursday (Dec 22nd) afternoon/evening:

- Well, of course, we first have this storm, which will bring plenty of snow to the interior and northern sections of the northeast and rain and wind for Long Island. A Wind Advisory has been issued for the eastern half of Suffolk with gusts up to 50 mph. The details for Long Island are in the forecast below, and I have included the snow, precipitation, and wind maps below in the 4th to 6th images.

- We will then have generally fair and quiet weather for the 5 days from Saturday through Wednesday.

- A MAJOR northeast storm is becoming increasingly likely from next Thursday (Dec 22nd) afternoon or evening into next Saturday (December 24th) early morning. While the exact track and strength is not known yet, the ensemble mean max wind gusts is already 45 mph on Long Island, which is impressive this far in advance of the storm. Also, 16 of the 50 ensemble members are showing at least 7 inches of snow on Long Island. Also, the main Euro run has wind gusts over 60 mph on Long Island with some areas inland getting over 20 inches of snow. Everything is still on the table for Long Island from all rain to all snow, including a blizzard. Track is everything, so stay tuned!

- Very cold air behind the storm for Christmas with highs only in the 20's on Long Island!
