Quick 4 AM update with latest maps, then a quiet week, then several ensembles showing LI snowstorm:
Here are the latest maps for the New England snowstorm, and then the big storm for Tuesday will stay well offshore, so it will be a quiet and dry week. It will be cold, but then warm up late in the week.
The new Euro ensembles have several members showing a big snowstorm for Long Island on the 16th. Obviously, there is a lot of uncertainty and the odds are low. 6 of the 50 ensemble members are showing 10 inches or more of snow.
