Maps for the 3 systems with not many changes and the Long Island forecast:
The 1st system is the cold front dropping southeastward that will bring rain to Long Island this morning into early afternoon. The next 2 storms will bring snow mainly from central to northern New England with some ice as well (see all maps below) and rain for Long Island.
A few of the Euro ensemble members are showing a snowstorm for Long Island around January 9th, and a few are also showing a snowstorm around Jan 13th, but the odds are low for now.
