Quick 4:15 AM update on next week and the Long Island forecast:
Be careful out there early this morning as the entire area is below freezing. The Monday system is coming a little later, so the rain (possibly starting briefly as wet snow showers) for Long Island likely won't start until early to mid-afternoon. The snow and rain maps from the Euro are shown below.
Regarding late next week, the odds are still very low of the potential for a snowstorm to affect the northeast; however, at least a few ensemble members of both the Euro and GFS do show it.
The next chance for a storm would then be March 2nd/3rd.
Here is a link to the snowfall totals for Long Island and the Tri-State area for the last couple of days:
