Maps for this storm and a look ahead to potential snow. Also, the Long Island forecast:
I have included the maps for this storm tonight into tomorrow, and there will be plenty of snow for the higher elevations in New England. Looking ahead though, it looks like a weak clipper system will move through the northeast late Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon. It should bring light snow to NY state and New England with possibly a coating to an inch or two but let's see how it evolves. Most of it should stay just north of Long Island. The models are kind of having a hard time with the potential system for late next week, so there is a lot of uncertainty. The Euro is showing several inches of snow for New England Thursday night into Friday morning, and then it has a separate system pass south of the area on Friday night. While snow for Long Island may be unlikely, the ensembles are showing that it can't be ruled out. None of them are showing a big snowstorm though for Long Island. The 25th/26th still looks more interesting. As posted about previously, colder air arrives next weekend with below normal temperatures for the northeast.
LONG ISLAND FORECAST:
Today (Friday): Cloudy and a little breezy in the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 40's. Wind out of the ENE at 10 to 20 mph. Tonight (Friday night): A few scattered showers in the evening and then a steadier rain towards midnight. There is the potential for moderate to heavy rain, especially in Suffolk. Total rainfall around 1.5 inches in Suffolk and close to an inch in Nassau. Temperatures steady in the mid 40's with a wind at 15 to 25 mph mostly from the east, but gusts in Suffolk could be up to 35 mph, especially along the south shore and east end. Tomorrow (Saturday): Rain ending in the morning from west to east between about 7 AM and 9 AM with the sun coming out shortly thereafter with temperatures steady in the mid 40's. The wind will become west in the afternoon with gusts over 20mph. More clouds are likely by mid to late afternoon as the upper level low moves through, and a stray shower in the evening and the early part of the night can't be ruled out. Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny and windy with highs in the low to mid 40's. Wind gusts up to 35 mph from the west in the afternoon. Monday: Partly cloudy and a little breezy with highs in the low 40's. Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny with highs around 40 degrees.
