MAJOR storm signals still there, but details as uncertain as yesterday!

- First, we have the current storm, and a Wind Advisory is in effect for all of Long Island until 6 PM for wind gusts as high as 50 mph.

- Starting tomorrow, we will have 5 straight dry days.

- While a major northeast storm is likely late next week, the track is still uncertain. For example, for Long Island, we can still get rain and little to no snow, but we can still get a blizzard. 3 of the 50 ensemble members are showing 19 or more inches, LOL, and a bunch are showing 8 to 14 inches (see 4th image). I know this storm has MAJOR travel and holiday implications for many and that we all want to know exactly how it will play out, but that's simply not possible at this stage.

- I am hesitant to post the Model Blend snow map because it still has snow from this current storm., but you can see it in the 2nd image. Remember, those amounts from the 2nd storm will continue to jump around for several more days.

- I will continue to update with many posts this morning into this evening. I will have less time this weekend, but I will at least have brief posts around 3:30 AM each day and then plenty of updates from early to mid afternoon into the evening, and then I will have extensive posts next week with snow maps leading up to the storm.
