Rain and wind tomorrow from another strong cold front, but still no concrete snow signals yet:

- The wind for tomorrow will be almost as strong as we had on Wednesday. As usual, the NWS is too low with their max gusts of 40 mph and the HRRR is too high at 55 mph, but I would go somewhere in the middle with max gusts mostly 45 mph in Nassau and closer to 50 mph in Suffolk, but mostly for the south shore and east end and at elevation, and a Wind Advisory is still possible. Most of the rain will be from mid-morning to mid-afternoon for Long Island with a slightly earlier start and end for western Long Island and slightly later for eastern Suffolk. I have included wind maps and future radar images below.

- More rain sometime around later Tuesday into at least Wednesday morning before a more sustained colder period begins.

- The 10 and 15 day snow maps below look a little better, but still not a good enough signal for Long Island to have any confidence. Our better chance will likely begin after the 16th with still a decent chance to get a snowstorm by Christmas.
