Quick early morning post on the snow potential:
Happy New Year!! Some quick comments:
The details for Long Island are in the forecast below, but basically all rain for these next 2 storms: early this evening into tomorrow morning and then Sunday late morning into Monday morning.
The storm for Sunday night into early next week could stall off the coast of the Maine and bring big snowfall totals for DownEast Maine.
It still looks like there will be a storm for late next week, around Friday afternoon into Saturday afternoon, that could bring snow to Long Island and southern New England. The overnight Euro run has mostly rain for Long Island with snow just to the north, but don't read too much into that yet.
LONG ISLAND FORECAST:
Today (New Year's Day): Increasing clouds with rain developing between 4 PM and 7 PM from southwest to northeast with highs in the low 40's. The wind will be light at 5 to 10 mph from the ENE mostly.
