This will bring rain for Long Island and most of New England, but there will be snow in the higher elevations of northwestern New England and northern NY state. Colder air with below average temperatures is still on track to arrive around the 24th with the ensembles from both the Euro and GFS showing highs around the low to mid 30's on Long Island.
