More snow today into tonight for Long Island and southern New England and a brief look ahead:
Be careful out there this morning as there have been periods of light freezing rain overnight, so untreated surfaces will be icy. The Winter Weather Advisory for Long Island continues until 7:00 this evening for a light glaze of ice early this morning and then snow amounts up to 1 inch. The models are showing the snow may not end until closer to 11 PM in eastern Suffolk as the coverage looks better in the late afternoon into early evening as it pulls away. Overall, it will just be periods of light to occasionally moderate snow, but temperatures should inch above freezing this afternoon.
Overall, there will be a lot of sunshine this weekend, and then we have the weaker system for Monday which will bring some snow showers changing to rain for Long Island and southern New England, with some accumulations for the higher elevations of central to northern NY state and New England (see 5th image).
As for late next week, the models are divided as the Canadian and ICON have more snow for Long Island next Friday, but the Euro and GFS keep it to the south, so the odds are pretty low for now.
