Tornadoes for the SE, snow for the northeast, and the Long Island forecast as next week looks mild!
There will be a major severe weather threat for the central Gulf Coast state tomorrow, but especially for the northern half of Alabama and Mississippi with the potential for strong tornadoes, large hail, and damaging wind gusts. The threat shifts east to Georgia and the Carolinas on Thursday.
The weak system for this afternoon into tomorrow morning will bring light scattered snow and rain showers to Long Island and the Tri-State area. The details for Long Island are in the forecast below.
It still looks like rain on Thursday afternoon into late Thursday night will change to snow from northwest to southeast on Friday morning, and it will be windy with gusts up to 30 mph. Some accumulations are possible in southern New England and possibly a coating on grassy surfaces for Long Island as it will be a wet snow during the day with temperatures in the mid 30's. There is still time to fine-tune the forecast though.
The weekend will be sunny, and it will be much milder on Sunday, and then Monday and Tuesday look really nice as well!
