Update on both storms as it comes into focus with a snowstorm north and west of Long Island and then a monster rain and wind storm with heavy snow well north changing to rain:

- Everything seems to have come into focus for now with only minor tweaks expected as the weekend storm will be mostly rain for Long Island with possibly some wet snow or sleet mixing in at the beginning and then maybe ending as snow showers Sunday afternoon. - I'm only posting the Model Blend snow map now as it gives a great idea as it shows the higher totals in southern New England now after being too low yesterday. Once the National Weather Service snow maps come out, I will post those as well. - The Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning storm will be a monster storm for the northeast and Great Lakes. For Long Island and southern New England, it will be heavy rain and very strong wind gusts, especially for the coast and also in New England at higher elevations. There is the potential for wind gusts from Montauk to Cape Cod of 50 to 65 mph from the SE/SSE. I'm expecting rainfall amounts of 1.75 to 2.75 inches for Long Island. There could be some front-end snow inland and mostly farther north and especially at elevation with heavy snow changing to heavy rain from south to north and from lower elevations to higher elevations. Stay tuned! - Another cutter/cold front may bring rain to Long Island and southern New England around Jan 12th/13th with colder air arriving with a potential storm around Jan 16th or so.
