Maps for the Saturday storm, a look ahead to colder temps with potential snow, and the LI forecast:
There haven't really been any changes to the general forecast or pattern as there will be snow on Saturday for northwestern New England and northern NY state with rain for Long Island and southern New England mostly from Friday night into early afternoon on Saturday. There will be a storm passing well offshore late Monday night, and it will be generally dry from Sunday through Wednesday next week. The next potential storm with rain or snow is for next Thursday/ Friday (Jan 21st/22nd). It still looks like colder air with slightly below average temperatures will arrive after that storm.
