Major snowfall to the NW and west, the Long Island forecast, and keeping an eye on early next week:
- There will be an impressive snowstorm this week stretching all the way from northern Texas through Illinois and Indiana and into western and northern NY and into most of Maine. For Long Island, it will be rain later on Thursday or Thursday evening into Friday with it probably ending briefly as snow Friday evening as temperatures drop throughout the day on Friday and end up around 16 degrees by early Saturday morning, so everything will freeze if there ends up being a coating of snow over the rain that fell.
- Keeping an eye on early next week with a trailing storm that should pass offshore and has a SLIGHT chance to be close enough to bring snow to Long Island and southern New England.
